How does Laser Therapy work?
Rapid Cell Growth – Laser light accelerates cellular reproduction and growth.
Tissue Repair – Laser light stimulates tissue repair at the cellular level resulting in accelerated tissue healing.
Increased Metabolic Activity – Higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells and thus a greater production of the basic food source for cells.
Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation – Laser light reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from: cuts, scratches, burns or post surgery.
Anti-Inflammatory Action – Laser light reduces swelling caused by bruising or inflammation of joints to give enhanced joint mobility.
Increased Vascular Activity – Laser light increases nutrient delivery to damaged tissue through increased blood flow.
Stimulated Nerve Function – Slow recovery of nerve function in damaged tissue can result in “dead” limbs or numb areas. Laser light speeds the process of nerve cell re-connection to bring the numb areas back to life.
