Laser Therapy


What is Laser Therapy?

 

Laser therapy is the use of monochromatic light emission from a low intensity laser diode (250 milliwatts or less) or an array of high intensity super-luminous diodes (providing total optical power up to the 2000 milliwatt range). Conditions treated include musculoskeletal problems, the arthritides, sports injuries and dermatological conditions. The light source is placed in contact with the tissues allowing the photon energy to penetrate widely, where it interacts with various intracellular biomolecules resulting in the normalization of cellular components. This also enhances the body’s natural healing processes. The following chart outlines some of the specific effects of Low Intensity Laser Therapy.
