We successfully treat a range of conditions using Light/Laser application as the prime healing force in therapy. The success of this approach is because Defined Customizable Protocols are used. Protocols are unique and developed skillfully over the last 25+ years.
The technology utilizes superluminous and laser diodes to irradiate diseased or traumatized tissue with photons. These particles of energy are selectively absorbed by the cell membrane and intracellular molecules, resulting in the initiation of a cascade of complex physiological reactions, leading to the restoration of normal cell structure and function. The process is curative and therefore results in the elimination of symptoms including pain. In addition, it enhances the body’s immune system response and facilitates natural healing.
Cold laser” or Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) is one of the most modern scientific treatments to be introduced to the field of physiotherapy, and we are proud to offer it to our patients at Sherway Physiotherapy and Laser Therapy in Etobicoke.
