Laser Therapy in Courtice

Laser Therapy

The use of low-intensity laser light to alleviate pain caused by soft tissue damage is known as laser therapy. Laser therapy aids in tissue regeneration and cell function restoration.

Laser therapy is a non-invasive technique to help reduce pain and inflammation. Laser therapy can be safely used as an adjunct or replacement for pharmaceutical drugs. This pain relief treatment is FDA approved and enables patients to have an alternative to drugs and surgery.

The lasers might improve circulation, support cell health, release endorphins that fight pain, reduce inflammation, or encourage the growth of new, healthy tissue.

Most patients see results within 3 to 5 short treatments. laser Therapy works by flooding the tissue with photons, which energizes cells resulting in increased circulation to the injured area and ultimately pain reduction.

Laser therapy allows your body to utilize it’s own healing powers by inducing a series of healing responses in your body. During treatment you will feel a soothing warmth that identifies the beginning of an 18–24-hour process of modulated cellular activity leading to decreased pain and inflammation.

What should you know before starting laser treatments?

Here is always some apprehension that comes along with laser therapy – we always receive questions such as, “does it hurt?” or “is it safe?” It is understandable to be hesitant before receiving a new form of treatment that you may not be entirely familiar with. However, we can definitively say that laser therapy does not hurt, and it is completely safe!

In fact, medical lasers are approved by the FDA, and they adhere to strict ISO standards.

You will feel a soothing warmth as the therapy is administered.

Laser treatments are also completely pain-free. When you receive a laser treatment, you will feel little to no sensation at all, depending on the type of laser that is being used. What you may feel is a gentle, soothing warmth from the laser, that many patients report as being quite pleasant. Treatments typically last between 2-10 minutes and patients begin seeing results after just a few short sessions, which is known to be the best laser therapy in Courtice.
