Active again with Laser therapy
Everyone who is active will experience muscle and joint pain from time to time, restricting your ability to exercise.
Laser therapy offers a quick, painless and effective solution for soft tissue and joint pain, enabling you to return to sport and exercise more quickly
How does Laser Therapy work?
Laser therapy involves directing focused laser light energy into inflamed or damaged tissues, supercharging the cells to accelerate the body's natural healing processes.
Laser has a number of beneficial therapeutic effects on injured tissues:-
- It inhibits the sensory nerve impulses associated with pain
- Decreases inflammation
- Relaxes muscle spasms and trigger points
- Increases vascular supply locally and restores normal blood flow to the injured area
- Increases energy for the cells within the injured tissue allowing them to repair
What happens at a Laser Therapy treatment session?
After a full assessment of your condition, we will tailor a treatment protocol for you. This usually involves up to 6 treatments with the laser, alongside other essential treatments such as offloading and strengthening the injured area.
The laser is placed in direct contact with the skin for a short period of time to achieve a therapeutic effect. You will not feel any pain during the treatment and often you will feel the benefits after the first treatment. It may take a few sessions for you to feel the effects, but the healing effects on the cells are cumulative as the treatment plan progresses.
Laser relieves pain quickly so you can do more strengthening exercises, speeding your recovery back to full strength.
