What is Laser Therapy?

Low Intensity Laser Therapy

The technology utilizes superluminous and laser diodes to irradiate diseased or traumatized tissue with photons. These particles of energy are selectively absorbed by the cell membrane and intracellular molecules, resulting in the initiation of a cascade of complex physiological reactions, leading to the restoration of normal cell structure and function. The process is curative and therefore results in the elimination of symptoms including pain. In addition, it enhances the body’s immune system response and facilitates natural healing. The therapy is completely safe and has no adverse side effects.

How long does a treatment take?

Treatments are typically thirty minutes to one hour in duration depending on the condition being treated.

How many treatments are required?

The number of treatments will depend on the chronicity and the extent of the pathology involved. Based on the genetic makeup of the cells, an individual’s response to LILT will vary to some degree. A recent clinical review, including 1,000 consecutively treated patients, reveals the average number of treatments to be 9.4.

Are there any side effects?

Unlike most pharmaceutical solutions and other therapeutic options, laser therapy is non-toxic, non-invasive and in over one million individual treatments, no signi¬cant adverse e ects have been noted.

The physiological effects of LILT include an increase in:

DNA synthesis

  • the protein building block essential to the process of cell regeneration

    Collagen production

  • increases tensile strength of muscles, tendons and ligaments

    ATP (adenosine triphosphate)

  • the fuel of the cell required in facilitating cell metabolism

    Endorphins

  • morphine like substances produced by the body to reduce the sensation of pain

    Modulation of cellular components involved in the healing process

  • i.e. macrophages, fibroblasts, lymphocytes, etc.

    Stimulation of:

  • immune response
  • lymphatic drainage (reduction in edema)
  • angiogenesis - formation of new capillaries and arterioles resulting in improved circulation / tissue oxygenation

* Prior to booking Laser Therapy, you must have a consult with one of our laser therapists to determine a treatment plan for your particular condition. Specific treatment times vary depending on location (body part) and pathology (injury). It is also generally recommended to do Laser Therapy in a series (several times per week initially) in order to maximize and build upon results.
