Laser therapy, with its primary action of pain relief and anti-inflammatory actions, is an ideal modality for the treatment of the arthritic patient. The biochemical cascade of events initiated by the laser therapy inhibits the inflammatory cycle, relieves pain and therefore halts the destructive forces within the cells. This allows the body to begin to reverse the damage and start to heal.
Class 4 Laser
Laser Therapy or “photobiomodulation”, is the use of specific wavelengths of light energy (red and near infrared) to create therapeutic effects. These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling.
