The term LASER is an acronym for the Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. The laser can be considered to be a form of the light amplifier – it provides enhancement of particular properties of light energy. Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is used by physiotherapists to treat various musculoskeletal conditions. It is a non-invasive light source treatment that generates a single wavelength of light. It emits no heat, sound, or vibration.
Laser therapy is one of the fastest, most effective modalities. We augment your rehabilitation process by the use of this modality. It works by recharging your cells. This energy is then used to assist your cells to heal and regenerate faster, thus reducing and/or eliminating your aches and pains.
Benefits of Laser Therapy:
➤ Treatment of various arthritic conditions
➤ Treatment of soft tissue injuries
➤ Pain relief
Some of the conditions that are treated by Laser Therapy include:
➤ Osteoarthritis of the knee, hip, and ankle
➤ Rheumatoid arthritis
➤ Shoulder impingement syndromes
➤ Hip or shoulder bursitis
➤ Low back disc degeneration
➤ Disc herniation
➤ Neuropathic pain.
➤ Tennis elbow
➤ Plantar fasciitis etc.
It is also a safe alternative to pain medication and reduces healing time substantially than other basic therapy methods. The greatest benefit of LLLT to the patient is that they experience immediate relief. Patients that undergo laser therapy are likely to heal 50%-60% faster and with recovery in their range of motion, strength, and overall better functional movement. Although one feels the laser device touching the skin, the procedure is painless and non-invasive. One feels no vibration or heat. Each laser session takes only a few minutes.
Laser Therapy is quite effective in the reduction and elimination of many painful conditions. Unlike surgical lasers, cold lasers do not heat up the body’s tissues. It is easily applied to patients and has a relatively short treatment time, depending on the power output of the device, the wavelengths used and the size of the area to be treated. It may harm eyes if one looks directly into the laser, so you are asked to use protective eyewear. But there are no known, permanent or serious side effects from laser therapy treatment.
What our Clients have to say
Frequently Asked Questions
LILT is a safe, painless, and medication-free treatment. Laser therapy is a non-medical procedure and is recommended by many physicians as a highly effective treatment.
The monochromatic coherent and polarized characteristics of the therapeutic light beam permit penetration of deep tissues without affecting normal cells. It promotes the growth of new healthy cells to replace damaged, degenerative cells that no longer function to their full potential.
No. Low-Intensity Laser Therapy is painless. Most people describe the treatment as relaxing.
A typical course of treatment is 5-10 minutes a day, although it depends on the size of the area being treated. Acute conditions may require daily treatment, in particular if they are accompanied by significant pain. Chronic problems typically respond better when the treatments are received 2-3 times per week.
Treatment during the first trimester of pregnancy or over an area of known cancer is not recommended.
Laser resurfacing can cause side effects like :
‣ Redness, swelling, and itching.
‣ Changes in skin color.
‣ Turning of the eyelid (ectropion)
