Low Level Laser Therapy aims to biostimulate

Because of its low power nature, the effects are biochemical and not thermal and cannot cause heating and thereby damage to living tissue.

Three distinct effects are known to occur when using Low Level Laser Therapy:

  • Healing growth factor response
  • Pain Relief
  • Immune system support

Low level laser therapy optimises the speed of repair in acute injuries but will also stimulate the body’s repair processes in cases of non-healing or chronic conditions. Not only is the treatment pain-free but it actually delivers pain relief, is non-invasive and is without unpleasant side effects, making it particularly well received by patients. There is never tissue damage or scarring. In fact, it can help reduce scarring from previous treatments. Laser therapy does not rely on patient compliance, other than appointment attendance, with no post-treatment complications and it is ideal for the treatment of children and nervous patients.

Low Level Laser Therapy can be used in the treatment of a variety of conditions including Plantar Fasciitis, Tendonitis, metatarsalgia and other Soft Tissue Injuries, Diabetic Ulceration and Post Operation Wound Care.

The number of treatments required varies case by case, with some resolving in one session but others requiring, at the extreme, 10 treatments.
