What is Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy is a painless use of laser energy to generate a photochemical response in damaged or dysfunctional tissue. Laser therapy can alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and accelerate recovery from a wide range of acute and chronic conditions. As rehabilitation specialists know, the main goal of treatment for many painful, debilitating conditions is to facilitate improved function and mobility. Laser therapy is a drug-free, surgery-free technique to help make that goal a reality.
In laser therapy, a greater number of photons are used to create a higher power laser, which allows for deeper penetration into the muscle. This is what makes laser therapy so effective. The injured cells absorb these photons, resulting in an increased metabolic rate and increased circulation. As a result, healing is promoted from within the body.
Direct benefits of laser therapy are:
- Shorter treatment times
- Quicker recovery
- Drug-free therapy
- Non-invasive technology
- Free of side effects
