How Does Laser Therapy Work?

Laser therapy uses an intense beam of light directed into a wound or painful area to reduce pain and promote healing. It does this by increasing circulation which reduces inflammation and activating the cell’s energy carrier which makes the cells heal faster. We use a hi-powered laser because the light produced is very stable and strong which leads to deep tissue penetration and deeper penetration means better results. Laser therapy treatment can be used to treat many conditions, both chronic and acute. The effects of laser therapy are cumulative, so treatments generally work best when built up over time. This is especially true with conditions that have been present for a long time.
