Laser Therapy

Our Laser therapy is an evidence-based, opioid-free, practical pain relief treatment for sports, surgical rehabilitation, and anybody suffering from musculoskeletal pain. At Opal Physio, we can assist you in reclaiming your life using laser treatment for pain.

One of the primary uses for laser therapy is that we use it in combination with rehabilitation. It can be used as a stand-alone treatment, but it’s most effective when applied alongside physical therapy and your exercise routine. Our physiotherapists in Langley clinic offer laser treatment to help treat inflammatory conditions like peripheral neuropathy, bursitis/capsulitis, etc. Symptoms related to strains, sprains, and repetitive motion injuries also fall into this category.

Cold Laser Therapy For Pain Relief

Laser treatment helps alleviate pain and inflammation by using a process called photobiomodulation. In this, light photons enter your tissue, which interacts with cytochrome c within your mitochondria. This interaction leads to a cascade of events that cause a biological reaction that can help reverse the symptoms of both pain and inflammation.

Our Cold Laser treatment is safe and effective for a wide range of conditions, including sports injuries, arthritic conditions and chronic soft tissue conditions.

Low-Level Laser Therapy

Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is an innovative therapy that has been used for over 20 years to treat a range of conditions, including soft tissue injuries and pain associated with arthritis. This light energy may help break down injured tissue and stimulate cells to heal and restore their healthy state. This treatment can be used for muscle, tendon, and ligament injuries. It can also reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling.

At Opal Physio, we provide low-intensity light treatment as an adjunct treatment to help with pain management and enhance the recovery process.

What is low-level laser therapy ( LLLT )?

It a low-intensity light-based treatment, which is also called Photobiomodulation. It is used for several musculoskeletal conditions to help improve.

  • Soft tissue healing,
  • Decrease inflammation
  • Increase Circulation and Enhance tissue regeneration
  • Relief for acute and chronic pain management.

Is cold laser therapy the same as low-level laser therapy?

LLLT is also called Cold Laser, as they do not produce any heat sensation during application.

How does laser therapy work?

The Laser light applied with a wavelength of 660nm–905nm produces biochemical changes within the cellular levels similar to photosynthesis in plants. Light wavelength applied between the red to the near-infrared region can penetrate skin and tissues and can better affect pain, inflammation, and tissue repair. low-intensity light treatment is beneficial for providing pain relief and can help speed up the body’s ability to heal injured structures.
