Therapeutic Laser

Therapeutic Laser Therapy utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and helps accelerate the healing process. It can be used on patients who suffer from a variety of both acute and chronic conditions in order to help eliminate pain, swelling, reduce spasms and increase functionality. The laser beam is moved over the skin so that the light energy penetrates the tissue where it interacts with various molecules that cause different biological effects. Some of the benefits of laser therapy include:

  • Production of an extracellular matrix (important in tissue repair & regeneration)
  • Re-absorption of edemas
  • Reactivation of microcirculation
  • Increased supply of oxygen and nutrients
  • Reduction of scar tissue formation
  • Increase in cellular energy synthesis
  • Increase in the production of RNA
  • Increase in cellular proliferation
  • Release of growth factors (fibroblasts) and other substances
  • Modulation of the inflammatory processes
  • Remodeling of the extracellular matrix
  • Induction of lymphatic and vascular regeneration
