Benefits of Photo Therapy

From soccer to skydiving, sports and activity are an important part of our everyday lives, but with increased exercise, we’re at risk for more injuries.  Getting back in the game and being healthy while doing it is what we all want, but with so many treatments available to treat sports injuries, it can be difficult to find a remedy that’s non-invasive and effective.

Thankfully with the evolution of sports medicine, there is an approach that’s gaining popularity.  Phototherapy is a treatment for soft tissue injuries, providing people with pain relief and healing without pharmaceuticals and/or surgery.

When soft tissue suffers trauma, the damaged cells release chemicals that cause a natural inflammatory response in the body, resulting in swelling and pain in and around the injured area.

By using the application of lasers that pulse specific light wavelengths to injured body tissue, damaged areas will see inflammation decrease while promoting blood flow.  This treatment bolsters the body’s ability to heal the injured tissue and get you back on the court or slopes faster and more healthfully.

In addition to the repair of soft tissue, laser therapy can significantly lower the risk of arthritis associated with sports injuries. This means that over time you’ll be able to be active longer, which is a great thing!

Thet therapy is demonstrated every day with its use on elite athletes across the United States in the NBA, NFL, MLB, and NHL.

Even beyond the healing effects from injury that phototherapy achieves, scientific evidence shows that there are additional benefits of laser and light therapy.  The treatment can increase blood circulation in problem spots, help develop collagen and muscle tissue, help stimulate the immune system, and give you relief from chronic pain.

Now you don’t have to limp through the pain or buy stock in a bandage company. Phototherapy treatment is a proven solution that will mean you don’t have to pop a pill every time you feel pain.

 We are committed to educating and inspiring individuals and families to cultivate health and healing throughout their lives.
