Laser Therapy

How Does Laser Therapy Help You To Heal?

Laser Therapy is the use of red and near infrared wavelengths of light to create therapeutic effects. This is because we can now use specific wavelengths of light and give accurately measured doses of energy directly to the appropriate treatment site, which was not possible with other light sources.

  • Fast reduction of inflammation, cuts, and lacerations
  • Increases speed, quality, and tensile strength of tissue repair
  • Positively alters histamine response
  • Released cytokines (enhances cellular communications)
  • Beta-endorphins production (inhibits acute and chronic pain)
  • Elevated serotonin + aceytylecholine levels (neurotransmitters)
  • Elevated cortisol levels (reduces trauma/disease induced stress)
  • Regulation of cell membrane potential (electrolyte balance)
  • Stimulates mitochondrial activity (cell replication + regeneration)
  • Increases ATP production (improved cellular metabolism)
  • Modulation of macrophages, fibroblasts and other cells
  • Improves Lymphatic drainage and increased blood circulation
  • Increases growth hormone production
