Laser therapy is effective in the treatment of skin conditions, mouth and ear infections, arthritis, soft tissue injury, post-surgical pain, and various other conditions. Treatment is totally safe, painless, and requires no anesthesia. It works by stimulating the production of cellular energy in impaired cells and enhances the permeability of the cell membrane. Simply, this promotes faster and higher-quality healing, increases nutrient and waste exchange across cell membranes, and enhances elasticity of damaged tissues.
Therapeutic effects are achieved by using specific wavelengths of light during treatment. These therapeutic effects include faster healing time, reduced pain, and greater circulation and less swelling.
Laser Therapy is effective in treating:
- Joint Pain
- Surgical Pain
- Edema and Congestion
- Ligament Sprains
- Muscle strains
- Puncture wounds
