What is Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy provides an external source of pure light energy to the body. Lasers work by providing the body with energy in the form of billions of photons of light, which allow the body to enhance its own repair. The bio-stimulating effect of laser therapy provides anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anti-swelling effects on the tissues.
Who Can Benefit?
People who suffer from a wide range of muscle or joint conditions, such as acute or chronic pain related injuries, strains, sprains, and arthritis can benefit from this fast and painless treatment. Some of the conditions that have responded well to laser therapy are:
- Tennis and/or golfers elbow
