What was in the box?
It is a state of the art Thor laser to help all of our patients and to return them quickly to health! These lasers cost £1000’s of pounds and this represents a considerable investment to help our patients at no extra cost to the patient. They have been shown to help most muscular, joint and even arthritic conditions and now our practices in Stockport, Nantwich, Crewe and Alsager Stoke-on-Trent can benefit from the latest technology to help them return to fitness quickly!
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a treatment that uses specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissues and helps speed up the healing process. It can be used on patients who suffer from a variety of acute and chronic conditions in order to help get rid of pain, swelling, reduce muscular spasms and increase flexibility!
The type of laser we use has recently been in the news as it has helped to GROW A TOOTH!
How do low level Lasers Work?
lasers are devices used by some Osteopaths that are placed directly over the injured area for 20 seconds to several minutes, depending on the problem, condition and size of the area being treated and the dose provided by the laser unit.
During this time photons or particles of light are emitted from the laser and pass through the body to the required depth to the area being treated. This laser light has the ability to penetrate 2 to 6 cm to therefore treat most joint and muscular conditions.
Once the light energy passes through the Body and reaches the area to be treated, it is taken in by specific components of the cells and interacts with the light sensitive elements Or mitochondria.
Mitochondria are like an energy producing power station component of the cell and the light energy is used to heal the cell more quickly leading to a reduction in pain, inflammation and swelling!
There is evidence to show this can half the healing time!
In other words our patients could get better twice as quickly from many conditions!
