Laser therapy can help reduce pain and inflammation related to many common conditions and our chiropractors may use this form of therapy within your treatment plan where treatment is customised for your presenting condition. The benefits of laser therapy are:
It reduces pain and inflammation without side effects
Laser therapy uses a process called photobiomodulation. Photons enter the tissue and interact with the cytochrome c complex within mitochondria. This interaction triggers a biological cascade of events that leads to an increase in cellular metabolism and a decrease in both pain and inflammation. Unlike medications, laser therapy reduces pain without undesirable side effects.
It can be used for acute and chronic conditions
When treating acute conditions with laser therapy, it is particularly effective when it is administered as soon as possible following injury (assuming there is no active hemorrhaging). The faster the inflammation is reduced and the healing process can begin, the better. In the case of acute injury, laser therapy helps restore the body to normal function more quickly.
With chronic conditions, laser therapy is used most often to help combat persistent pain and inflammation. Laser therapy is especially well-suited for treating chronic conditions.
Our experienced and highly skilled team of chiropractors are trained in using laser therapy and may incorporate this therapy withing your treatment plan to speed up your recovery.Make an Appointment
