Photomedicine is an interdisciplinary branch of medicine that involves the study and application of light with respect to health and disease. One of these applications involves the use of low level lasers to the surface of the body. Laser Therapy uses specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to stimulate the body's natural ability to heal.
This is what our Centre specializes in – Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), also known as Cold Laser Therapy.
Low Level Laser Therapy and its Benefits
Through this therapeutic treatment we can manage pain and inflammation while accelerating tissue regeneration. Laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, stiffness and pain.
The three benefits of LLLT include:
- improved tissue regeneration
- pain reduction
- increased circulation and decreased swelling

Osteoarthritis is a form of arthritis caused by the inflammation, breakdown, and eventual loss of cartilage in the joints.
Your neck is made up of vertebrae that extend from the skull to the upper torso. Cervical discs absorb shock between the bones.
Carpal arthritis stems from anything that crowds, irritates or compresses the median nerve, such as a wrist fracture, swelling or inflammation.
