Our Services – Laser Therapy

What is low-intensity laser therapy?

Low Intensity Laser Therapy is a highly effective, non-toxic and non-invasive therapy that uses light energy from superluminous and laser diodes. The light particles are absorbed by cells in your body where the light energy turns into biochemical energy. This energy helps the body’s cells work faster in order to repair and regenerate itself. The therapeutic light beam safely penetrates deep into tissues. Symptoms disappear and normal cell function is restored.

What are the effects of laser therapy?

  • Increases ATP levels which increases cell energy
  • Modulates white blood cells to improve immune function
  • Helps DNA production and cell division to speed up healing
  • Promotes collagen synthesis to strengthen muscles, tendons, and ligaments
  • Drains lymph to reduce swelling
  • Promotes creation of new blood vessels which improves circulation
  • Reduces inflammation to speed up recovery
  • Reduces formation of fibrous tissue and scar tissue

What are the advantages of laser therapy?
