▮What is Laser Therapy?
Laser Therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal.
The effects of laser energy include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling.
▮Laser Therapeutic Effects
During each painless treatment, laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area.
This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain.
As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.
During Laser Therapy, infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level increasing metabolic activity within the cell.
By improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane, the increased production of cellular energy (ATP) is stimulated.
The cascade of beneficial effects that follows includes increased cellular function and tissue repair.
