Sporting Injuries Treatment

 

Whether due to overuse or direct force, low level laser therapy (or cold laser) can be very effective in treating acute or chronic sporting injuries due to its anti-inflammatory benefits. There is a wide body of research to support the use of  laser as a treatment for sporting injuries and evidence to support laser being at least as effective as NSAIDs without the side-effects. In addition, cold laser is known to stimulate the lymphatic system helping to clear fluid build up which often accompany sporting injuries.

 

We treat sprains, muscle strains and tears, tendinitis, repetitive strains and soft tissue injuries with laser. Typical treatment for common sports injuries includes rest, anti-inflammatories and ice. Laser therapy treatment can often speed up the healing process due to the effect it has at a cellular level.  Acute injuries often respond and heal more quickly than chronic complaints to laser therapy.
