Laser Therapy

Fleetwood Chiropractic is excited to offer laser therapy to Surrey patients for the treatment of sports injuries, arthritic conditions and a variety of chronic or degenerative conditions. 

This technology involves the application of light energy of specific wavelengths and power levels on injured and/or abnormal tissues. The light energy is absorbed by various molecules within the cells of these tissues and converted to biochemical energy which initiates a number of positive physiological responses. The result is the stimulation of tissue healing and regeneration and restoration of normal function. 

Because low intensity laser therapy works at the cellular level, this enables it to have applications on a wide range of medical conditions. Some of the more commonly treated conditions include: 

 

General

 

  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome 
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Tennis/golf elbow    
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Relfex sympathetic dystrophy
  • Temporo-mandibular joint dysfunction
  • Achilles tendonitis

 

Injuries

 

  • Ligament and tendon tears
  • Soft tissue injuries              
  • Bulging/herniated discs       
  • Contusions
  • Facet joint syndrome        

 

Inflammatory

 

  • Tendonitis
  • Myositis
  • Synovitis      
  • Bursitis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis      

 

Degenerative

 

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Numbness/nerve pain            
  • Chondromalacia patella
  • Patello-femoral syndrome
  • Spinal stenosis pain                
  • Pain from bone spurs

 

Laser therapy is non-invasive, non-toxic and with no known side effects. Unlike other forms of radiation, laser therapy is beneficial rather than harmful to tissue with hundreds of research studies demonstrating its safety and effectiveness.
