Healing at the Speed of Light: The LASER
LASER: Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation
Safe and efficient, therapy using the soft LASER allows tissue photo-bio-stimulation by acting on cells photoreceptors. This approach is not only unique but soft LASER, which has been the subject of several studies, achieves impressive clinical success where other treatments were less effective following a sports injury, a work-related accident, an inflammatory disease, headaches and migraines, or to help cure a chronic condition.
Soft LASER is mainly used to accelerate tissue healing (tendons, ligaments, nerves, muscles) and for pain management. The application of LASER is painless, produces no heat, is well tolerated by patients and doesn’t produce unpleasant side effects.
By applying LASER directly to the painful area and stimulating points from a distance (acupuncture points, trigger points), this drug-free approach causes the biochemical cascade needed to fight inflammation and release natural endorphins.
The STADIUM PhysiOsteo clinic uses simple LASER and clusters which allows the treatment of large areas in a short period of time.
A treatment plan including LASER therapy will be prescribed and applied by your therapist following a thorough assessment during your initial visit.
