Laser therapy can be used to effectively treat a wide variety of muscle and joint pain and it provides an important treatment alternative for patients who have not yet responded to other conventional therapies.
Applying light produced by low-level laser triggers normal cellular functions that lead to faster healing, pain relief and accelerated functional recovery.
Phototherapy has been used successfully to treat athletic injuries, acute & chronic conditions, repetitive strain disorders, tissue healing and much more. By providing the extra energy required for healing, the tissue is able to heal itself naturally.
Research demonstrates that phototherapy can be used to effectively treat many conditions. Simulating the body’s natural repair processes using the healing nature of light has been proven particularly effective for certain conditions including:
- Soft Tissue & Sports Injuries
- Chronic Pain and Acute Pain reduction
- Pain from arthritis
- Back pain
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Muscle Spasms or tension
- Whiplash Neck Injuries
- Rotator Cuff Syndrome
- Post Operative Knee and Hip Rehabilitation
- Plantar fasciitis
- Achilles tendonitis
- Epicondylitis (tennis elbow)
- Sprains or strains
