Laser therapy works by stimulating inter-cellular activity. This causes a natural reduction in pain and inflammation in the area and speeds recovery of the damaged tissue. Laser therapy is one of the newest and most exciting therapies for common musculoskeletal injuries on the market.
Laser Therapy is completely painless. Occasionally a comfortable sensation is experienced in the area of treatment. Treatment takes 5-10 minutes.
It can be used on the young as well as the old, on the athlete as well as the office worker. Some of the conditions treated by laser therapy include: tendon and ligament injuries, soft tissue injuries, muscle strains, degenerative joint conditions, neurological pain, chronic non-healing wounds, pre and post surgical treatment, disc disease, arthritis, edema and bursitis.
Common results are: rapid diminishment of pain, decreased inflammation, more rapid healing of sprains and strains, diminished edema and swelling, increased wound healing speed. The lasers we use are state of the art, Mix 5 lasers made by Cutting Edge Lasers.
