LASER THERAPY


Class IV Laser



Laser for Deep Tissue Therapy
Laser Therapy is used for the relief of pain, to accelerate healing and decrease inflammation. When the light source is placed against the skin, the photons penetrate several centimeters and get absorbed by the mitochondria, the energy producing part of a cell. This energy fuels many positive physiological responses resulting in the restoration of normal cell morphology and function. Laser Therapy has been successfully used to treat a broad range of medical conditions, including musculoskeletal problems, arthritis, sports injuries, post-surgical wounds, diabetic ulcers and dermatological conditions.
Laser therapy
The central goal of laser therapy is to stimulate the cell to perform its natural functions, but at an enhanced rate. Targeting hemoglobin and cytochrome c oxidase, high power diode laser therapy will provide warm and smoothing feeling unlike “Cold lasers” which provide no feeling or sensation. Laser Therapy treats the underlying condition or pathology to promote healing. This means that the treatments are effective and the benefits of Laser Therapy can be long lasting.
