Pain Relief with Laser Therapy

How Light Therapy Works:
Chromophores in our cells are activated by light energy. This in turn increases the energy output of the cells. With repeated treatments the health of the injured part improves.
Low level laser has been in use in Europe since 1980. This modality has been available in Canada since the early '90s. The FDA in the USA gave formal recognition of this treatment in 2002.
Over the past twenty years, the technology and understanding of this therapy has vastly improved. Light therapy {phototherapy} has steadily grown in acceptance as a valid treatment for many conditions; so much so that the therapy is now called PhotoMedicine.

What can be treated?
Phototherapy can relieve pain, reduce inflammation and promote tissue repair which means that a large number of conditions can be treated.
Many people have problems with medications for painful conditions. They often have inadequate relief or troublesome side effects. Laser therapy can often provide relief and allow people to remain functional.

How do we treat patients?
Laser light may be used in two different ways to treat patients. It can be used directly on the injured area but also as laser acupuncture. Both methods are often used in combination during treatment.
