Laser Therapy

Laser Therapy

In this day in age there are so many treatment options that can help people without any drugs or surgeries. In a clinical setting we see many patients that walk through the clinic with an array of injuries. In most cases, people respond to different treatment options based on their condition. At Central Health we take pride in our ability to have a wide range of treatment options for our physiotherapists and chiropractors to provide to their patients.  

In this article we will go over one of our treatment modalities we use in the clinic, Laser Therapy. This modality is a non-invasive treatment option to help accelerate healing. Laser therapy is a low level laser therapy that emits a single wavelength of light to create biostimulation. Now this all sounds fancy, but what does it mean…?

The laser light is believed to impact the function of connective tissue to accelerate tissue regeneration. When there is soft tissue damage, connective tissue will release fibroblasts that lay down collagen, which is the framework of our soft tissue.  Our chiropractors and physiotherapists find it a great treatment option to use in combination with soft tissue therapy, stretching and joint mobilization.

Laser therapy is a great tool to use for the following conditions:

  • Tendinopathies
  • Sprain/strains
  • Bursitis
  • Osteoarthritis
