Laser Therapy Guelph
Laser therapies are medical treatments that use focused light. Unlike most light sources, laser light is tuned to very specific wavelengths, allowing it to be focused into powerful beams. Lasers offer surgeons the ability to work very precisely. They can focus on a small area and damage less of the surrounding tissue.
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
LLLT is a non-toxic, pain-free, light-based therapy that is highly effective in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions, arthritis, sports injuries and dermatological conditions. Unlike high intensity medical lasers, low intensity lasers do not damage tissue. Instead, low intensity laser therapy initiates the body’s own healing process.

K-Laser IV therapeutic lasers deliver specific red and near-infrared wavelengths of laser light to induce a photochemical reaction and therapeutic effect. Physiological effects include increased circulation, reduced inflammation, pain reduction and enhanced tissue healing.
Medical applications Include:
- Ligament/tendon/muscle tears
- Inflammation (tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, arthritis)
- Back Problems (osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, disc herniation, sciatica)
The duration of each treatment typically depends on the area being treated and the number of treatments will depend upon the extent of the pathology, the healing capacity of the client, age and acute vs. chronic states.
To further enhance the healing process, Wilson Health Services offers acupuncture with each LLLT treatment.
At Wilson Health Services, laser therapy may be a part of your physical therapy treatment plan. Ask your Guelph physiotherapist for more information on laser therapy.
