The clinical effects of Deep Tissue Laser Therapy include; accelerated healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation, decreased swelling/inflammation, and decreased scar tissue formation.
Treatment with laser therapy is painless and can reduce muscle spasm and stiffness, which can lead to immediate pain relief.
The infrared light of laser therapy interacts with the tissues at the cellular level to increase cellular metabolic activity. This increase is cell activity improves transport of nutrients across the cell membrane and increases production of ATP (an energy carrier). This increase in ATP leads to a cascade of beneficial effects that improve cell function and health.
Because of the wide ranging effects of laser therapy bio-photo-stimulation it has the ability to help with a broad range of conditions. Laser therapy can be used all over the body including conditions of the knee, foot, ankle, hip, back, neck, shoulder, wrist, hand, elbow, arm, leg, thigh, and head (not eyes!).
Examples of specific conditions that laser therapy is effective treating include: ligament sprain, tendon or muscle strain, tennis/golf elbow (epicondylitis), carpal tunnel syndrome, myofascial trigger points, back pain, tendinopathies, repetitive stress injury, chondromalacia patellae, IT band syndrome, arthritis, plantar fascitis, shoulder injuries, traumatic/acute injuries, swelling/edema/inflammation, sports injuries, auto accident injuries, headaches, cervical or lumbar disc herniation, TMJ pain, ankle sprain, and achilles tendinopathy.
