Do you suffer from muscle aches, migraines or sports injuries? Do you want a long lasting solution to remove the need for painkillers or surgery? If you would like to go back to enjoying life pain-free, keep reading.

Introducing Deep Tissue Laser Therapy, a treatment designed to quickly alleviate aches and pains caused by many medical conditions.

How Does Deep Tissue Laser Therapy Work?

Utilising LCT 1000 Deep Tissue (Class IV) Laser Technology, the treatment works by penetrating tissue with photoenergy in a process called photobiostimulation. This energises the damaged cells, encouraging an increase in circulation to the affected area and significantly reduces or eliminates pain. The process is painless and quick, making it a popular alternative to other treatments.

To administer the treatment, experts simply run a piece of laser equipment over the skin, sending low frequency lasers directly to the affected areas. Those who have received the treatment report feeling no pain and a warm sensation.

What Are The Benefits Of Deep Tissue Laser Therapy?

The main benefit of Deep Tissue Laser Therapy is there is no surgery or drugs involved. This means no painful side-effects or needing to take time out; particularly with a busy schedule, this is a major plus.

The application of laser light increases blood flow to affected areas, which helps to remove toxins and improve oxygenation. In addition, chemical analysis shows the increase in the production of Adenosine-triphosphate (ATP), a substance which reduces inflammation and therefore pain, promoting an increase in reparation of damage.

The process can promote faster healing – particularly after a sports or trauma-related injury – getting you back to a healthy state much quicker than with other treatments. Depending on the nature of the affected area, each treatment typically lasts just 5-10 minutes. This allows a great level of flexibility in terms of fitting treatments into your schedule.

Deep Tissue Laser Therapy can be used for a variety of medical conditions – from acute pain to chronic problems. The large power range of the lasers allow the customisation of treatments specific to the affected area.

Your treatment can be altered depending on you. Response of the immune system to the treatment varies from person to person, and Deep Tissue Laser Therapy can be adapted based on the required level of healing.

Many of the medical conditions (such as chronic neck or back pain) treated by Deep Tissue Laser Therapy are otherwise difficult to treat, and often have a major impact on an individual’s lifestyle.

Very few treatments are required for Deep Tissue Laser Therapy to produce effective results, typically 5-10 treatments will provide a significant improvement or even entirely eliminate pain.

What can Deep Tissue Laser Therapy Be Used For?

Some of the most common medical conditions that can be treated by Deep Tissue Laser Therapy include:

Plantar Fasciitis

Rotator Cuff Tendonitis

Lumbar Disc Herniation

Musculoskeletal injuries

Lower Back Pain

Epicondylitis (Tennis Elbow)

Nerve Root Pain (radiculopathy)

Sciatica

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Sprains/Strains

Osteoarthritis

Fracture Healing

Post-surgical scarring

Conclusion

With the quick advances in technology, it is likely Deep Tissue Laser Therapy will continue to develop, allowing even quicker healing times and treatment for a more extensive list of medical injuries. The non-invasiveness of this therapy significantly reduces the impact on an individual, leading to a great deal of investment allocated to research in this area.

Deep Tissue Laser Therapy is typically more effective when it is administered quickly after damage, so generally the sooner you seek treatment after sustaining an injury, the better.
