So what is Laser Therapy? Exactly that….a laser that uses red and near-infrared wavelengths of light to create therapeutic healing effects in the body.
Laser Therapy treats a wide variety of conditions, and is especially effective with pain management. Laser Therapy accelerates wound/injury healing, decreases inflammation, pain, and scar tissue formation. When it comes to pain management, Laser Therapy provides dramatic results, is non-addictive and virtually free of side effects.
During each painless treatment, laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.
Numerous research studies show that laser treatments can help with these conditions:
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Work or Auto Related Injuries
Soft Tissue Injuries
Repetitive Strain Injuries
Degenerative Joint Conditions
Herpes Zoster (Shingles)
Diabetic Foot Ulcers
Chronic Non-Healing Wounds
