High Power Laser Therapy
There is no additional cost for high power laser treatment at Mageta Physiotherapy. If the Physiotherapist deems the treatment correct for your injury, then the treatment is included in your visit.
How does it work?
when the photons of laser light penetrate the skin and underlying tissue, they are absorbed by the cells, and converted into energy. The cell membrane permeability is altered, which triggers a cascade of cellular events including:
- Stimulation of ATP
- Increased DNA and RNA synthesis
- Increased levels of beta endorphins and serotonin
- Enhanced collagen synthesis
Both Acute and Chronic injuries respond well to the DIOWAVE Laser Therapy treatment. Inflammation and swelling are quickly reduced to allow greater range of motion in the affected area. This helps to regain activity and mobility while reducing scar tissue and adhesions which can slow recovery and healing. Injured tissues are restored to optimal strength and vitality and preventing re-injury.
