Laser therapy uses light to change how your cells work! Your cells house some little energy production centres called mitochondria. The laser works to increase how quickly mitochondria produce energy and therefore, how fast you heal. It’s also nice and warm and feels great.
‘‘Low Level Laser Therapy or Photobiomodulation (LLLT or PBM) is an effective treatment modality to reduce pain in adult patients with musculoskeletal disorders such as neck, shoulder and back pain. It has also been shown to reduce inflammation and accelerate tissue regeneration in muscle and joint injuries” (Clijsen et.al, 2017).
At Brain + Body Health, our key priority is to reduce the symptoms associated with musculoskeletal injuries and improve both recovery rate and patient outcomes. The team at Brain + Body Health has been operating in Gladesville for over 15 years, and has implemented Laser Therapy using a Class 4 K-LASER (one of only 3 clinics in Sydney) for the last 5 years in our therapy and as a natural alternative to anti-inflammatory medication and other invasive injections. Since introducing this treatment method we have noticed decreased pain levels from acute flare-ups and faster healing rates from muscle and joint injuries which has allowed our patients to return to daily activities, work or sport earlier and with less pain. We are constantly refining our therapy at Brain + Body Health to provide the best care to our patients so that they can live happy, active and pain free lives.
