LASER THERAPY

Laser therapy works by using light energy to up-regulate the function of cells and stimulate tissue repair. Not only does laser function to optimise wound healing, it can also be used to aid relaxation, and is therefore a fantastic tool for relieving active muscle soreness. Below is a list of just some of the benefits of laser therapy...

  • Optimises healing of all types of wounds and ulcers

  • Helps recovery of acute muscle injuries

  • Aids healing of nerve damage

  • Reduces oedema and bruising

  • Helps reduce the effects of inflammatory conditions such as arthritis

  • Neutralises trigger points and areas of muscle tension

In addition to laser as part of your standard sessions, I also offer intensive laser therapy packages, aimed to specifically enhance wound healing post-injury or surgery.

PULSED MAGNETIC THERAPY

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMFT) is a truly brilliant piece of equipment, with many different settings that can be tailored to address specific problems. It is a form of therapy that uses pulsed low frequency and high intensity magnetic fields to increase cell activity, blood flow and lymphatic flow. The most immediate effect you will see is the relaxation, but the long list of benefits follows...

  • Reduces both acute and chronic pain

  • Encourages fracture healing

  • Reduces the effects of osteoporosis

  • Accelerates oedema/haematoma healing

  • Promotes healing of soft tissue wounds

  • Aids nerve regrowth in neurological injury

  • Encourages relaxation of muscles

TENS THERAPY

TENS (which is short for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) uses gently electrical pulses to stimulate the muscular nerves and provide pain relief by increasing the pain threshold and encouraging an 'opioid response', which is the release of pain relieving hormones. Although pain relief is the primary benefit, there are many more linked benefits, including...

  • Muscle relaxation

  • Overall comfort and well-being

  • Improved movement and locomotion

  • Improved posture and muscle engagement

  • Reduction of stress and pain related behaviours
