The Advantages Of Laser Therapy

The Advantages Of Laser Therapy

Laser therapy works by impacting cellular function. First, damaged cells absorb the light. Then, they are energized by photonic energy. Because of this, the cells become supercharged and accelerate your body’s natural healing processes. 

Light produces the most benefit where it’s needed most. In fact, studies show that impaired cells have a stronger response to laser light than healthy cells. Damaged cells get flooded with photons. This causes an increase in circulation and reduces pain as a result. 

Class IV lasers are able to penetrate tissue deeper in the body. This is an advantage over other treatments, like massage or acupuncture. That is, these treatments aren’t able to reach much beyond the surface of your skin. Because light has to travel through muscles, bones, and joints, they need enough energy to have any sort of impact.

Light from the laser actually promotes cellular metabolism. This is responsible for tissue healing. Ultimately, laser therapy is a safe and effective treatment option. More importantly, it’s far less invasive than surgery and medication.
