Accelerate Tissue Healing with Laser Therapy

One of the first and most essential steps in treating nerve, muscle, and/or joint conditions is stimulating rapid, and proper healing of damaged and injured tissue. We have found that Laser therapy helps patients recover faster, and more completely from a wide array of musculoskeletal conditions including, neck pain, low back pain and sciatica, as well as common knee, foot, and shoulder problems.

How Laser Therapy Works

Laser therapy is a non-invasive, pain-free therapy that applies concentrated red and infrared light through the skin to the deeper tissues of the body, including muscles, tendons, nerves, ligaments, and joints (this does not cause heat or damage to the skin or underlying tissue). As this light reaches the damaged tissue it stimulates a number of intracellular and metabolic processes which act to reduce pain and accelerate tissue healing.

Some of the key effects of Laser Therapy include include:


Increased collagen production facilitates proper alignment and remodelling of collagen, reduces scar tissue formation, enhances tissue elasticity


Reduced Inflammation and Edema stimulates inflammatory control cells such as macrophages, neutrophils, and lymphocytes which help control and resolve the inflammatory process


Accelerated bone remodelling/bone repair proliferation of osteophytes for faster bone healing and regeneration


Increased muscle regeneration speeds the repair of damaged muscle fibers and regeneration of damaged muscle tissue)


Facilitated nerve regeneration proliferation of nerve growth factors
