What Is Laser Therapy?
In Laser Therapy, a small handheld therapeutic device is used to deliver precise wavelengths of light into the injured tissue. It emits a wavelength of 90 MW and 830 nanometers and penetrates two to five centimeters beneath the surface of the skin.
The specific wavelengths of light are useful in interacting with the tissue underneath the skin and accelerate the healing process. The treatment also helps reduce muscle spasms, inflammation and pain, while increasing functionality.
Who Can Laser Therapy Be Used For?
It is suitable for most people suffering from soft tissue damage or trauma, including those who have medical implants. It could be beneficial for people suffering:
