Therapeutic laser delivered to specific soft-tissue at the correct wavelength will enhance cellular metabolism, which is a direct cause for healing. This stimulation has positive physiological benefit for many patients suffering with soft-tissue injury or damage.
The effect of therapeutic laser is to target specific cells. Light is absorbed by specific chemicals in the cell called “chromophores”. This stimulates the cell to perform it’s natural functions at an accelerated rate.
Our bodies require oxygen to function. By increasing a cells metabolism with photostimulating laser, the oxygen uptake by the cell is increased. Many acute and chronic injuries can be treated and co-treated with laser. Muscle, nerve, tendon and joint injuries, both acute and chronic may respond to the addition of laser therapy to your treatment.
