Laser Therapy

The word LASER in laser therapy, is an acronym for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation and applies to any instrument that generates light using that technique. Laser therapy is the use of monochromatic light emission from a low intensity laser diode or an array of high intensity super luminous diodes. Since laser therapy is relatively new, the biological and physiological affects of laser therapy are still being explored. Conditions treated with laser therapy include musculoskeletal injuries, chronic and degenerative conditions and wounds. Low Level laser therapy is best recognized for increasing the rate of wound and ulcer healing by enhancing cellular metabolism. Laser therapy has been shown to enhance the synthesis of nucleic acids and enhance cell division. Some of the advantages of laser therapy are; non-invasive procedure, non-toxic, easily applied, highly effective and no known negative side effects. It also has been demonstrated that repeated laser therapy treatments are more effective than a single exposure.
