What is Laser Therapy?

Laser therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses light energy to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. It has been used to reduce pain, improve circulation, and speed up recovery times. Laser therapy can be an effective tool in managing chronic pain and providing relief from some of the most common conditions, including joint pain, muscle soreness, and skin irritations. It is even being used to help treat neurological conditions.

How Does Laser Therapy Work?

Laser therapy acts by starting a process known as photobiomodulation (PBM) in which photons penetrate the tissue and interact with the Cytochrome C complex within mitochondria. To get the best therapeutic results from laser therapy, a satisfactory amount of light needs to arrive at the target tissue. Circumstances that maximize reaching target tissue include:

  • Light Wavelength
  • Reducing Reflections
  • Minimizing Unwanted Absorption
  • Power
