Low level laser therapy has been well documented in the treatment of chronic and acute inflammatory condition such as osteoarthritis, bursitis and tendonitis.
Studies have shown that wounds heal more quickly with cold laser therapy. Laser has been documented to activate the mitochondria (the cell energy) and increase cellular activity and also speed up cell division.
This allows you to heal quicker and get out of pain. Some injuries are irritated by normal activities of life like walking or using you hands and arms. They start to heal and then get flared up by walking or using the affected body part.
Laser therapy helps you get ahead of the pain and heal.
Laser therapy helps many with neuromas, bursitis, tendonitis, muscle or ligament injuries and others.
It does not work for everyone or everything. It is important to try when the usually therapies fail or surgery is the only option.
It is called "cold laser" because is does not burn or shrink the tissue - it activates the bodies tissues or cells to make them work better or faster.
It is like putting the right amount of sun on your plants - too much heat will burn them but the right amount will make them grow - of course with water and fertilizer. Laser is to add to what you may already be doing.
We don't charge more than most other therapies - the lasers are expensive but have proven to help our patients in a way we couldn't before.
