If you’re unfamiliar with laser healing, we’ve created a short guide. First we’ll talk about how it works. As well, we’ll talk about some of its advantages. Then we’ll list some conditions that respond well to laser healing. Finally, we’ll tell you how to find out if laser healing can help you.
How does laser healing work?
Laser healing uses a light emission from a laser diode to treat musculoskeletal injuries, chronic and degenerative conditions, and to heal wounds. The light source is placed in contact with the skin. As a result the photon energy penetrates the tissue.
Laser treatment enhances the body’s natural healing processes. It also encourages the restoration of normal cell function.
The laser is painless. Additionally, it does not involve cutting or piercing the skin in any way.
Laser healing is a drug-free alternative to painkillers. It works to heal the source of the discomfort rather than simply masking the symptoms.
Overall, laser healing does not have the same side effects as surgery or drugs. In summary, laser healing is a natural way to help the body heal itself more quickly.
Laser healing can treat a variety of conditions, including:
- sports injuries
- carpal tunnel syndrome
- plantar fasciitis
- ligament and tendon tears
- rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis
- facet joint syndrome
- bulging and herniated discs
- rotator cuff injury
- chondromalacia patella
- bursitis and tendonitis
- calcifications and bone spurs
