What Is Laser Therapy?

Laser therapy is a treatment which utilizes low level laser light  (a.k.a low level laser therapy, LLLT, photobiomodulation therapy, cold laser therapy) to stimulate the body’s own natural healing systems to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, promote regeneration of tissue, and other strong healing responses in the body. Lazer Dave refers to this process as “super charged healing”.

The light source (laser device) is placed in contact with the skin allowing the photon energy from the laser to penetrate the tissues. This technology can in some cases be “curative” and can eliminate or reduce symptoms associated with many acute and chronic pain conditions.

Dave utilizes laser therapy at Physiocare as a Physiotherapist Assistant (PTA) in order to assist Physiotherapist treatment plan goals.

What Is Laser Acupuncture?

Laser acupuncture is the synthesis of laser therapy (a.k.a. low level laser therapy, LLLT, photobiomodulation therapy, cold laser therapy) and needle acupuncture methodology – but does NOT use needles!

By combining the approach of medical acupuncture and the application of laser light, a truly revolutionary approach to the nearly 5,000 year old art of acupuncture is now available. Using low level intensity laser light (photonic energy), not needles, to stimulate the body’s natural healing can promote very positive outcomes for pain, injury and inflammation.

Dave utilizes the technique of laser acupuncture in his practice as an Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) in order to boost treatment plan goals.

How Does Laser Therapy Work?

It is theorized that the main reason for the reduction in pain from laser is due to the anti-inflammatory effect as increased circulation reduces pressure on nerves. In addition, elevated levels of endorphins (morphine like substances naturally produced by the body) reduce the sensation of pain.

Benefits Of Laser Therapy

There are 7 main benefits of using laser therapy:

  • EFFECTIVE – Laser promotes a strong healing response in tissue by reducing inflammation and promoting tissue regeneration. By Dave’s estimation, laser therapy can provoke a healing response 2-6 TIMES STRONGER than the ability of your body to heal itself. This is advantageous when you need an injury or pain syndrome to get better but can’t stop working. There are currently 10,000+ studies on laser therapy. RESULTS CANNOT BE GUARANTEED.
  • PAIN-FREE TREATMENT – Although treatments are based on theories of medical acupuncture, no needles are used to pierce the skin. Only gentle, low intensity laser light is applied over the tissue. Many find treatment very relaxing due to endorphin release.
  • SAFE – Any contraindications to treatment, risks or potential side effects are discussed individually with each patient to facilitate informed consent. Unlike most pharmaceutical solutions and other therapeutic options, laser therapy is non-toxic and non-invasive.
  • REDUCES PAIN & IMPROVES MOOD – Most patients report a significant reduction in pain after utilizing laser therapy (chronic conditions may require a few treatments before this can happen). In addition, treatments utilizing laser therapy often improve moods, reduces feelings of anxiety, depression and other negative emotional factors that can be connected with physical pain.
  • REDUCED DEPENDENCY ON PAIN MEDICATION – Most pharmaceuticals options for pain only temporarily reduce symptoms and do not address underlying causes. In addition, many pharmaceuticals come with a host of undesirable side effects and can even damage your internal organs with prolonged use. Though laser therapy can reduce your dependency on such medications, consultation with a
    physician is ALWAYS recommended before making any changes in this regard.
  • LESS TREATMENTS FOR YOUR CONCERNS – Many of Dave’s clients report they need less treatment in order to better manage their pain syndromes when laser therapy is utilized versus more traditional therapies.
  • TEAM APPROACH – Laser therapy is a perfect adjunct to other therapies (such as physiotherapy) you may already be receiving.

How Effective Is Laser Therapy For Reducing Pain?

Laser therapy for pain and healing is effective for many people. There are currently 10,000+ scientific studies on laser therapy.

Some patients report a reduction in pain even after one treatment utilizing laser therapy. In cases of acute pain, this may occur at the end of the first or second treatment. In chronic pain cases, this may take 2-3+ treatments until notable results are experienced. Results are NOT guaranteed.
