There are two types of laser, high powered lasers which are used in industry and engineering settings. Physiotherapist, use a laser that is called “Low Level Laser Therapy”. These type of lasers are called cold lasers because they do not burn. There are over 4000 studies proving the effectiveness of lasers used for tissue repair.

Healing effects of Laser

  • Accelerated tissue healing and regeneration
  • Improve the tensile strength of tissue
  • Improve the elasticity of tissue
  • Pain relief
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Improve blood supply
  • Relive pain
  • Improve healing
  • Reduce swelling

When is laser therapy used

Physiotherapist are qualified to determine if Laser treatment will benefit you. It is mostly used on structures like ligaments, tendons and joints that is made up of much more collagen. It can be applied to all kinds of musculoskeletal injuries to help reduce pain, inflammation and encourage cell reproduction.

We use laser treatment

Physiotherapist use laser therapy as part of their treatment, in conjunction with other treatment techniques. Laser treatment tend to last anywhere between 2 and 10 minutes, depending on the size and depth of the structure being treated.

The physiological effects of laser therapy:

Similar to the photosynthesis of plants, the effects of LLLT are brought about by photochemical processes in the cells’ mitochondria. Low level laser light reduces oxidative stress in the tissue while increasing ATP synthesis.

The primary effects of the biological stimulation takes place at the cellular level. Here the monochromatic red and infrared beams are absorbed by components of the respiratory chain, which enhances the electrochemical potential of protons, ATP, RNA, and protein synthesis, oxygen consumption, the membrane potential, and the synthesis of NADH.
