Laser therapy is offered at our clinic in downtown Toronto. Laser therapy is a non-invasive, pain free therapy that uses the power of light to stimulate the cells that make up our tissues. The red and infrared light targets inflamed and injured tissues and accelerates the healing process by stimulating ATP production within the cells. This ultimately speeds up the cellular regeneration process and decreases the amount of scar tissue that is produced.
Why is our therapeutic laser machine effective
There are many different types of therapeutic laser machines in the market but unfortunately many of the devices do not offer the results they promise. This is because there are different classes of medical laser machines. Our machine is a class IV laser machine. In comparison to class IIIa and IIIb lasers, class IV lasers deliver more energy per unit of time. Ultimately, this means that our laser machine can deliver higher dosages of laser light to larger volumes of tissue in less time. Class IV lasers also penetrate into deeper tissues that can be stubborn to treat. Most importantly, clinical research findings consistently demonstrate the effectiveness of Class IV lasers in treating a wide range of conditions. See for yourself; ask your physiotherapist if you can benefit from this modality.
