WHAT IS HIGH INTENSITY LASER THERAPY?
High Intensity Laser Therapy (HILT) is a technological advancement combining biostimulation and photomechanical stimulation to significantly reduce pain, promote regeneration of tissue as well as speed up healing. High power allows the light to penetrate the affected area deep in the tissue while the photomechanical wave works to stimulate nerve endings to bring immediate pain relief.
Since HILT stimulates the treated area at the cellular level, the therapy will result in reduced inflammatory reaction, increased blood circulation, reduction in pain and rapid repair.
WHAT CAN HILT HELP WITH?
HILT offers effective treatment for a wide range of clinical indications ranging from muscle injuries to degenerative joint disorders. Common conditions HILT can help with include:
- hip arthrotis
- patellar tendinopathy
- back pain
- Achilles tendonitis
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
WHAT TO EXPECT?
HILT is usually integrated with chiropractic care or physiotherapy to significantly improve the results of your condition. An initial consultation and physical assessment will be necessary before deciding if HILT is suitable for you.
