Laser therapy is used to relieve pain and brings fast recovery for many sports related injuries and is also very effective for muscle tightness and chronic nerve related back pain.
Laser Therapy works by helping the body heal itself at a cellular level through light energy that triggers certain chemical reactions within cells of the body. These chemical reactions create healthy new cells which replace damaged ones and hence promotes the healing process. This laser energy increases blood flow and circulation, thus repairing tissues more effectively.
Laser therapy is precise so side-effects are limited and the areas surrounding the treatment are normally left unaffected.
Laser therapy has been used for decades to treat hundreds of different conditions ranging from sports injuries, acute and chronic pain to a wide variety of skin problems, blindness, cancers, and more.
Common injuries treated with laser therapy include neck injuries, shoulder strains, plantar fasciitis, menstrual cramps, knee problems such as patello femoral syndrome (runner’s knee) and osteoarthritis, sciatica or lower back pain, post operative rehabilitation after sports injuries or surgery.
