Laser Therapy and Cold Laser Therapy
It is a non-invasive and pain free light-based therapy that uses infrared and red light as physical agents. The therapeutic laser provides patients with a safe and effective therapy to target inflamed, injured and diseased tissues.
This method enhances your body’s own natural healing systems to relieve pain, increase joint mobility, and cell regeneration by using the photons of light to stimulate the energy production in your cells (ATP) to accelerate the healing process.
Laser could be used to treat acute and chronic conditions such as:
Rheumatoid arthritis pain
Osteoarthritis (joint pain)
Sprained ligaments and strained muscles
Back and neck pain
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Therapeutic Laser has been used to increase angiogenesis and neurovascularization, collagen production, bone formation, muscle and nerve regeneration.
As Norman Doidge reports, in his recent best seller book “The Brain’s way of Healing”, light speeds healing, decreases pain, improves sleep, improves vitamin D levels, and may even decrease cancer risk. In our modern world, we are certainly deprived of natural light and its benefits. Mr. Doidge goes as far as saying that light therapy could repair sick brain cells and make them more receptive to re-wiring.
Doidge clearly praises the use of low-level laser therapy, which is supposed to work by helping the body “marshal its own energy and its own cellular resources to heal itself with no side effects.” He describes near-miraculous successes of laser therapy in healing all kinds of health problems, from wounds to depression. At PhysioMAX Wellness, we have found it very useful for a variety of conditions such as soft tissue healing of any joint area and its surrounding muscles and tendons, as well as the joints themselves. A collection of 4-8 laser treatments can have a profound effect on healing and the decrease of pain.
We offer laser therapy with the Theralase system to residents of Brampton and the surrounding area.
