High-Powered Laser

Light energy has long been used in the medical industry for its healing properties but not all laser devices are powerful enough to create meaningful tissue changes. The high-powered “Biolase” device used at Bodyworks Physiotherapy is an effective pain-reliever that decreases nerve sensitivity by decreasing bradykinin (a pain eliciting chemical produced by the body during cellular injury), promotes release of endorphins and enkephalins that produce an analgesic effect and causes pain-blocking effect on certain nerve fibres that halts the transmission of pain to the brain.

Laser has additional therapeutic value by providing cells with energy which accelerates the repair processes of the cell thus speeding up healing and resolving inflammation. Laser light increases the formation of new capillaries in damaged tissue, which speeds up the healing process, and closes wounds quickly as well as stimulating the building blocks of collagen, which is important in the wound healing of damaged tissues.
