The Benefits of Laser Therapy in our Thornhill clinic
Treatments for various injuries are developing and becoming more advanced all of the time and while Laser Therapy is not a new development, its use in a clinical setting is becoming more and more common. Used to treat both sudden injuries (often called “acute” injuries) and longer term injuries (referred to as “chronic” injuries), it offers the patient a wide range of benefits over traditional treatment options, which will be discussed in this article.
Why You Should Consider Laser Therapy Over Other Options
We utilize this technology at our clinic in Thornhill and have used it to treat a wide range of different conditions. Here are a few of the main benefits that you will experience when undergoing Laser Therapy:
- Non-Invasive Procedure – In most cases there will be multiple different treatment options available to treat the problem you’re suffering from, but Laser Therapy will be different to most in that it’s non-invasive. This means that it’s a treatment that doesn’t involve cutting your bodily tissue, which shortens the recovery time and there’s a much lower risk of complications occurring.
- Very Effective – Laser Therapy has been found to be an extremely effective form of treatment for many different conditions, including some that are historically difficult to treat. Some examples include chronic joint and muscle pains and arthritis. If you’re suffering from one of these problems and have tried traditional treatments without any success, it may be time to try Laser Therapy.
- Fast & Convenient – Many of us have experienced the hours of waiting around that typically accompany hospital appointments, which is neither enjoyable nor convenient. Laser Therapy helps you to avoid this since it can take place in a private clinic, such as the one that we run in Thornhill. You can be in and out in no time at all and get on with your day as normal afterwards.
- Wounds Typically Heal Faster – During a Laser Therapy session, the photons of light that the laser is made up of penetrate your skin and focus in on the muscle tissue that is affected by your injury. These hyper-targeted lasers are able to quickly encourage cell production by providing the necessary energy, and this is a process that is vital for the healing of wounds. There’s also less chance of patients suffering from lasting scars, since no incision is made during your treatment. In fact, laser therapy is proven to actually remove scar tissue.
