Laser Therapy

Low-level laser therapy can speed healing as well as reduce pain and inflammation in the following injuries: 

- Achilles tendonitis/tendinopathies

- Plantar Fasciitis

- Lower back pain

- Shoulder pain 

- Knee pain 

-Trigger Finger

- Sprains and Strains

- Tendonitis

- Ulcers

- Bursitis 

- Osteoarthritis of the knee, hand and foot

 

What Low-Level Laser Therapy/ Photobiomodulation do you use and how do I know it could help me? 

We use the MLS Laser from ASA. ASA research and develop their therapeutic lasers and other devices within the University of Florence. This gives us the confidence that the equipment, treatment protocols and safety profile is cutting edge.

Our work with the local community and elite sportspeople has drawn patients to travel internationally for treatment.

Our Musculoskeletal Clinical Lead, Patrick Cane, is proud to educate and assist other laser therapists as they help patients reduce pain and speed healing with the ASA laser.

Benefits of laser therapy include: 

- Reduced pain, both acute and long standing

- Reduced inflammation

How does Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) work? 

The unique technology enables concurrent tissue and pain treatment, quickly and painlessly reducing inflammation and swelling. 

The laser produces two wavelengths (808 nanometers and 905 nanometers) of light that penetrate through the skin to:

- Speeds Healing by increasing ATP within the treated cells' mitochondria which accelerates the cells' ability to heal.

- Reduces Swelling by releasing Nitric Oxide from the cells into surrounding tissue, leading to blood vessels dilating to increase the flow of nutrients in and waste products out of the affected area.

-Reduces Pain by disrupting the sodium channel of some pain receptors temporarily and by decreasing swelling leading to less stimulation of pain receptors that respond to swelling.
