Low level Laser therapy is also known as Photobiomodulation.
This is cold laser , super pulsed and LED- infrared light.
Research has proven that light is good for the human body, that it promotes health and healing.
The light is safe and effective, penetrating the body and having an effect on the mitachondria of the cell. This is known as the fuel source of the cell, thereby activating it.
This process stimulates healing of injured muscles, ligaments, tendons, nerves, and bone.
Laser therapy reduces inflammation and swelling which has an immediate effect on pain.
Blood circulation is also activated; fluid in the body is shifted, including lymphadema.
Examples of conditions that laser therapy helps include:
Sports injuries such as calf tears or thigh injuries.
Bells palsy, facial pain, dental pain, sinusitis, tinnitus.
Shoulder injuries such as rotator cuff tears, frozen shoulder and bicep tenderness.
Limb problems such as tennis elbow, golfers elbow, carpel tunnel syndrome, arthritis of joints, knee injuries,
Foot issues such as plantar fasciitis, neuromas, bunyen swelling and achilles tendonitis.
Back issues- sciatica, low back pain, disc injury, neck pain, thoracic injury.
Headaches and migraines.
Sleep disorders, anxiety and depression.
Inflammatory bowel problems.
There has been research confirming the effectiveness in dementia and other neurological disorders such as Parkinsons disease.
