Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is recognised and used worldwide for the treatment of numerous injuries including muscle pain and soreness, inflammation in joints, oedemas & lymphoedemas, fibrous lesions, slow healing skin wounds, sprained/strained ligaments and tendon injuries just to name a few. Laser therapy uses a laser to bring about the absorption of energy in the form of light at a cellular level.  The laser light penetrates into tissue where it is absorbed by cells and converted into energy that influences the course of metabolic processes.  The energy is then carried by the blood and lymphatic systems around the body. What does a treatment involve? Treatment is usually in contact with the skin, directly onto the injury. When treating skin wounds, the units are used in non-contact mode.  The time and frequency of the treatment varies depending on the type of injury and its condition. Specific advantages of the LTU-904 laser therapy include:-
  • Painless and often immediate analgesic effect at the time of treatment
  • Dramatically shortened recovery time with rapid reduction of swelling and inflammation
  • Non-invasive treatment
  • 100% safe and effective
