They call it the cutting edge of non-surgical pain relief and tissue repair.
Laser therapy uses light waves to stimulate healing in soft tissues. It has a similar effect to ultrasound. It is a low level cold laser and is pain free, it works from the infra red spectrum which penetrates up to 3cm into the muscles tendons and ligaments of the body.
The laser light then stimulates the cell body within muscles, tendons or ligaments causing them to oxidize and increase healing at twice the normal rate.
It can improve healing, pain reduction, increase circulation and decrease swellings.
It is not available on the NHS but there are a number of clinic’s through the UK which perform this type of pain relief.
