Our therapeutic laser treatments provide patients with a safe, effective and painless therapy that uses the body’s own natural healing systems to relieve pain, increase joint mobility, increase tissue integrity and promote cell regeneration.
It works by supplying energy to the body in the form of billions of photons of light. The body absorbs this laser light on a cellular level and transforms it into chemical energy, which the body then uses to commence its own tissue repairs. The biostimulating effect of laser therapy causes a decrease in inflammation and pain and an increase in tissue regeneration and healing.
Frequently asked questions
Do therapeutic laser treatments burn?
No. There are two general types of medical lasers: heat generating lasers which cut through tissue and damage tissue, and cold lasers such as our therapeutic laser, which stimulate tissue repair, reduce inflammation and eliminate pain.
Do therapeutic lasers work?
Yes> Therapeutic laser therapy is safe, effective, and painless, with results which are often immediate with no side effects. Efficacy rates in excess of 90% are routinely achieved.
How long do treatments take?
Treatment time will vary from as little as 2 minutes to as long as 20 minutes per session. The total number of treatment sessions required varies between 5 to 25 depending on your body’s natural healing rate and the severity of your condition.
