Laser Therapy

At Lifepath Wellness Physiotherapy, we use laser therapy to decrease pain and inflammation and to increase blood flow, increase blood oxygenation, and increase ATP activity. ATP is the body’s process to heal tissues.

Laser therapy can be used to treat injuries, even ones that are deep and chronic. It has been shown to be effective in treating conditions such as osteoarthritis, Achilles tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, and low back pain, just to name a few.

What Can I expect during a Laser Therapy Session?

During your laser therapy session, you may feel a warm tingling sensation from the laser. There should be no pain or discomfort during or after your treatment. Sometimes patients feel immediate relief; however, it normally takes several treatments to feel the full healing effects of a Laser Therapy Session.  Much depends on the type, severity, and duration of your specific injury.
