Laser

I am delighted to inform you that I have now completed a training course that enables me to use Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) on a wide range of injuries.

What is Laser Therapy?

Laser Therapy is the application of red and near infra-red light over injuries or lesions to stimulate healing and give pain relief.

Laser can be divided into two categories:

1.       Laser Light (Infra Red)  which is monochromatic (one colour) and the beam is coherent which means that it is consistent and covers a small target area.

2.       LED Light (Red)
          (Light Emitting Diode)

          This is also monochromatic (one colour) but the beam is non-coherent, which means that it covers a larger target area.

How does it work?

The effects of low energy, Red and Infra-red light are photo
chemical (not thermal), it stimulates the body’s natural healing
process.

 PHOTONS

These are absorbed in cytochromes and porphyrins within the
mitochondria and at the cell membrane, causing an increase in
Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), modulation of Reactive Oxygen Species
(ROS) and release of Nitric Oxide (NO). 

Injuries Treated

Please contact me if you would like to discuss any of the above injuries.

Clinical Benefits

Tissue Repair: Rapid regeneration of skin, muscle, tendon, ligament, bone and neural tissue.

Inflammation: Resolution of inflammation at least equal to NSAIDS but without the side effects.

Analgesia: Temporary (48 hours) inhibition of nerve conduction in small and medium diameter peripheral nerve fibres.
