The benefits of laser therapy

20th November, 2023

Laser therapy is a non-invasive treatment using low-level lasers or LEDs to stimulate cellular function. This procedure holds a number of benefits to help in your healing journey. 

Pain Management:

By targeting affected areas with low-level light, the treatment stimulates the release of endorphins. This process not only provides immediate relief but also contributes to long-term pain reduction in conditions such as arthritis, musculoskeletal injuries, and chronic pain syndromes.

Accelerated Wound Healing:

Laser therapy can accelerate wound healing, it promotes cellular growth and tissue repair, facilitating faster recovery from injuries, surgical procedures, and chronic wounds.

Anti-Inflammatory Effects:

Inflammation is a common factor in many health conditions, ranging from joint disorders to skin ailments. Laser therapy shows anti-inflammatory effects by reducing swelling and inflammation at a cellular level. This makes it a possible treatment option for conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory skin disorders.

Improved Blood Circulation:

Laser therapy has been shown to enhance blood circulation by stimulating the formation of new capillaries. This improved blood flow ensures better oxygen and nutrient delivery to tissues, fostering an environment useful to healing.

Laser therapy can be used alongside or on it’s own whilst under the supervision of any of our amazing Chiro’s here at Beyond Self.
