Laser Therapy LEPT or Cold Laser or Photon Therapy
First developed over 30 years ago, phototherapy uses a specific type of light to penetrate the skin’s surface and underlying tissues to stimulate the body’s natural repair processes. The light energy – photons, is absorbed by the cells and are converted to complex biochemical substances that the cells and tissues use to eliminate pain and heal the tissues. The result is faster healing and reduced pain, swelling, and inflammation. While normal healing cause scar tissue formation, which results in further abnormal functioning, laser heals tissue without abnormal scar formation. This type of treatment has been used successfully to treat such issues as;
