Thanks to growing technology, it is now easier than ever to get rid of the pain. Laser therapy is the result of improving the technology that allows us to help our clients heal faster.
What is Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy is a form of medical treatment that involves the use of focused light. The technique was earlier used by surgeons to help them concentrate on a specific area, but now laser therapy services in Mississauga also cater to physiotherapy patients.
What Does Laser Therapy Do?
Laser therapy is used to accelerate and improve results in treatments for physical therapy patients. It utilizes a near-infrared or red-beam laser with changing wavelengths.
Laser therapy clinics in Mississauga have been using the technique for decades to help patients feel better. The laser penetrates light into the tissue to provide several benefits including:
- Reduced inflammation
- Stimulated healing
- Reduced scarring
- Stimulated tissue regeneration
- Increased blood flow
- Reduced pain
Who Is It Suitable for?
Laser therapy may be suitable for patients with one or more of the following conditions:
- Osteoarthritis of the hip, ankle, and knee
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Shoulder impingement syndromes
- Shoulder or hip bursitis
- Low back disc degeneration
- Tennis elbow
- Disc herniation
- neuropathic pain

- Reduction of pain and volume in lymphedema
Is Laser Therapy Safe?

HOW SAFE IS LASER THERAPY?
Laser therapy is completely safe since our body has a natural ability to resist limited over-stimulation. Physiotherapists at Achieve, are fully aware of the “therapeutic window” for the wavelength of the laser, i.e. 630 to 905 mm. Within this range, the body can easily resist they over-stimulation, without any negative effects. Some people report feeling absolutely nothing during the therapy. Laser light stimulates the tissues at such minuscule level that it is not felt much, however, the stimulation is enough to generate the above-suggested effects and help in healing faster.
