Laser Therapy for Workplace Injuries
Laser Therapy uses Low Level Lasers, which improve tissue repair, ultimately reducing pain and inflammation wherever the light ray is applied.
Treatments take only a few minutes and can be applied two or more times a week.
Laser Therapy can be an effective alternative to surgery or drug-based pain treatments for treating workplace injuries and getting you back into the workplace as soon as possible without any downtime after the treatment.
Low Level Lasers can effectively be used to reduce pain, swelling and inflammation within a period of hours to weeks, with no downtime, so you will be free to go back to work as soon as your pain subsides, rather than waiting for months after invasive surgery.
Laser therapy is also proven to reduce pain and inflammation from minor workplace injuries within minutes, so if you have a minor sprain or strain and wish to be free of the pain without using medication or committing to a pain management program, a session of low level laser therapy would be a good option.
- Drug-free and surgery-free approach to pain relief
- Effective results in the short and long term
- Can reduce pain associated with injuries and stimulate regeneration
- Non-invasive and painless procedure which takes only minutes
How low level laser therapy works
Low Level Lasers are handheld devices used by the clinician which are small and look much like a handheld torch. The laser is placed directly over the injured area for 30 seconds to several minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated and the intensity of laser used.
Once the laser energy passes through the layers of skin and reaches the target area, it is absorbed and interacts with the light sensitive elements in the cell. This process can be compared to photosynthesis in plants – sunlight is absorbed by plants, which is then converted to usable energy so that the plant can grow.
When cells absorb this light energy, it initiates a series of events that eventually result in mending damaged or injured tissue, a reduction in pain, inflammation, and an overall reduction in healing time.
