Laser & Photo Light Therapy in Ottawa ON

Chiropractic Ottawa ON Laser Therapy Hero

The Healing Nature of Light

First developed over 30 years ago, photo light therapy uses a specific type of light to penetrate the skin’s surface and underlying tissues to stimulate the body’s natural repair processes. The result is faster healing and reduced pain, swelling and inflammation.

Cold laser therapy in Ottawa ON is a completely painless therapy which uses laser light to improve blood flow, repair injuries 60% faster, strengthen cartilage & tendons, relieve muscle spasms, improve the appearance of spider veins, and more. Cold laser therapy is gaining new successful levels of treatment because it induces increased blood circulation to the injured area, thereby activating natural healing and treatment.

Why Laser & Photo Light Therapies in Ottawa ON

There are two types of medical lasers: high power and low power. High power lasers are used to cut through tissue, like in surgery or dentistry. That is not what we do at our centre.

Low-level lasers, on the other hand, are used to stimulate tissue repair through a process of bio-stimulation. The word "laser" is an acronym for Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation. The first low level therapeutic laser was developed in 1962. By the end of the 1960's, Endre Mester in Hungary was reporting an improved healing of wounds through low level laser radiation. Since then, scientists and doctors around the world have been using laser light to treat conditions which can affect all age groups for the past 50 years.

Low level laser therapy is the application of red and near infrared light over injuries or wounds to improve soft tissue healing and relieve both acute and chronic pain. Low level therapy uses cold (sub-thermal) laser light energy to direct bio-stimulative light energy to the body's cells without injuring or damaging them in any way.

This low level laser therapy is precise and accurate, offering safe and effective treatment for a wide variety of conditions. We offer two solutions in our office including cold laser and infrared laser, as well as a near infrared photolight.
