Laser therapy for healing:
We use Laser therapy in both acute conditions such as an ankle sprain, as well as chronic conditions like low back pain and carpal tunnel syndrome.
In acute cases, when there is tissue damage, swelling, and pain in the body, laser therapy helps to decrease pain, improve circulation, and reduce inflammation. This promotes an exchange of nutrients and waste products in the body to help increase healing. Laser therapy increases the cellular processes in the body by stimulating
In cases of chronic conditions, surrounding cells can become dormant inhibiting their ability to function and produce energy. When a damaged part of your body is exposed to lasers, the light energy emitted penetrates the tissues and stimulates the energy producing part of the cell, the mitochondria. This causes an accelerated production of ATP in cells, which helps speed up the healing process and in some cases, stimulating growth of new tissues.
Recent research found that lasers are able to stimulate the growth of new peripheral nerve fibers in the body, which is beneficial for conditions that are caused by nerve damage such as: carpal tunnel syndrome, trigeminal neuralgia, sciatica, and common symptoms such as pain, tingling, and numbness.
