What is Laser Therapy?

Laser therapy is the use of specific light wavelengths (red and near-infrared) to create therapeutic effects on the body. Laser therapy is utilized for several therapeutic effects including, improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation, and decreased swelling. The use of laser therapy can be dated back to 1970, when it was utilized in Europe by physical therapists, doctors, and nurses. Since its FDA approval in 2002, laser therapy has been extensively used in the United States.

Therapeutic Effects

Each Laser Therapy Treatment is painless, the energy it administers into the body increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain. As the tissue returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.

Cellular Effects

As the Laser Therapy treatment is being performed, the infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level and metabolic activity increases within the cell. As the metabolic activity increases the transportation of nutrients across the cell membrane. The production of cellular energy (ATP) is then stimulated, leading to a cascade of beneficial effects, increasing cellular function and health.
