ABOUT COLD LASER THERAPY
We started using cold laser at our Southport clinic 8 years ago. We needed something at our clinic that was more than just the standard treatments that just were not getting the results we wanted. We needed something to treat those problem conditions that just weren’t responding to conventional standardised treatments. Something to treat those difficult conditions such as severe neck degeneration, chronic migraines, tennis elbow or plantarfasciitus. After much consideration and research as to how we could best help our patients with their wide range of conditions we invested in cold laser.- “It has been a revolution at our clinic and our patients now rely on their cold laser treatments to minimise recovery time”.
HOW DOES THE LASER WORK?
Laser light causes changes in membrane permeability. This leads to increased intracellular activity and communication. This gives the laser its great effectiveness as this leads to normal cell function, pain relief and increased healing capabilities.
Patients often prefer this method to dry needling or acupuncture, as it is painless and less obtrusive. The technique is called “cold” laser therapy because the low levels of light are not enough to heat your body’s tissue. The level of light is low when compared to other forms of laser therapy, such as those used to destroy tumours and coagulate tissue. Very safe, very effective.
Using the latest heat/thermal imaging techniques (Diagnostic X-rays if required) we isolate the site of your problem. We establish what the likely cause is, and how long it has been present. We also identify what soft tissue structures have been damaged. After we gather this information we can guide you with what treatment options will be most beneficial for your specific condition.
