Low Level Laser Therapy creates an increase in the production of ATP (energy) within the mitochondria at a cellular level. This results in far more rapid healing of damaged cells than normal. As a result Low Level Laser (Cold Laser therapy) is widely used in the healing of torn ligaments, damaged cartilage and other soft tissue and/or muscular injuries.
Applications are broad as the same benefits can be applied to post-operative wound care and healing, scar prevention and removal, ulcer healing, bedsore healing and chronic back injuries such as degenerative disc disorder and ‘slipped’ discs (herniated discs).
Also, because Therapeutic Laser works on three fundamental levels pain associated with the above conditions is also resolved. As we balance the lymphatic system and encourage the distribution of white blood cells to the necessary areas of the body for healing, so too are endorphines released into the blood stream, which creates the benefit of a natural pain relief treatment.
Patients with fibromyalgia, neuralgia, arthritis, chronic injuries, ulcers, post-operative wounds, and other inflammatory diseases have all experienced pain relief after treatment, often reporting a long term relief from pain for long periods afterwards.
