Low Level Laser Therapy

L.A.S.E.R. stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Laser Therapy involves the application of low-intensity laser light to relieve pain caused due to the damage of soft tissue. This modern medical treatment, facilitates tissue repair and restores normal cell function. It is used by experts to heal wounds and pain. Many of our patients get amazing results with both acute and chronic conditions. Some of our patients had tried everything else with no success, and have found that Laser Therapy has relieved their problems after just a few sessions.

How does it work?

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a form of laser therapy used in physiotherapy. Whereas the low power laser therapy in physiotherapy is used with the intention of stimulating and encouraging cell function. There are a few properties that distinguish Laser from conventional light sources. The aspects of laser light which are deemed to make it special include:

• Monochromacity: Is probably the most important factor, as many of the therapeutic effects have been noted.

• Coherence

• Polarisation: It is believed that the polarisation is soon lost within the tissues & may therefore be less important than was thought at first.

Laser therapy works by stimulating the body’s natural healing process. The laser light penetrates deep into the tissue, where it is absorbed by cells and converted into ATP (Adenosine TriPhosphate). ATP is the energy that cells need to function and heal. Laser therapy also increases circulation, which brings nutrients and oxygen to the area, helping the body to heal itself.

Laser Therapy is an extremely safe and non-invasive alternative to other treatments, such as cortisone injections or surgery. Laser Therapy research has shown that laser therapy can significantly enhance soft tissue repair, for injuries such as muscle sprains and other ligament/tendon injuries. It can also help heal injuries and open wounds.
