What is Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy is the use of a single wavelength of light emitted from a low intensity laser diode or any array of high intensity Super Luminous Diodes to treat acute or chronic musculoskeletal injuries, and degenerative conditions, and to heal wounds. The light source is placed in contact with the skin allowing the photon energy to penetrate the tissue, where it is absorbed by the light sensitive parts of the cells, mainly cell membranes and mitochondria, and is converted to bio-chemical energy, enabling the energy to be used as a catalyst to speed up chemical reactions in the cells. Essentially, this speeds up the metabolism, changes the permeability of the cell membrane, and therefore enhances of the bodys’ healing processes. At Alberta Back and Neck Rehab we use one of the most powerful lasers on the market today.
