Laser/ LED light therapies have been used by manual therapists and other healthcare professionals to accelerate the healing and recovery process. Pulled muscle, or post-operative patient, non-invasive light therapy treatment options are becoming a preferred method to help many people heal and recover.
LASER - Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation / LED - Light Emitting Diode
Both are a non- invasive procedure that uses light energy to repair and regenerate damaged tissue cells.
Light Therapy reduces pain and inflammation.
Unlike medications, Laser/LED therapy reduces pain without undesirable side effects. It does this when photons from the light interact with the tissue cells. This interaction leads to a cellular metabolism that decreases pain and inflammation and helps cellular regeneration.
They can be used for chronic or acute conditions/ Injury.
With acute injury, Laser/LED therapy is most effective when applied as soon as possible following the injury. The faster inflammation can be reduced, the faster deep cell healing can begin. Laser/LED has been known to aid acute injuries to heal faster.
With chronic conditions, laser/LED therapy is safe to use often and can be offered in a series of treatments to reduce persistent pain and discomfort.
Laser/LED Treatments can be customized to your Injury needs.
Laser/LED therapy has multiple levels of frequency that it delivers to make sure cell metabolism and growth are happening at a rate appropriate for your unique situation.What does it feel like?
Laser Therapy has little to no sensation when it is being administered. What you can expect to feel is decreased pain, discomfort, and increase in mobility almost immediately. LED Therapy can sometimes feel warm depending on the severity of the injury. Both therapies are typically used together to offer maximal results.
How Long is a Treatment?
Depending on your individual tissue needs and melanin levels, laser treatments can be 30 seconds to 5 minutes.
L.E.D Therapy can take up to 10 minutes.
