Frozen shoulders are mostly characterized by pain and stiffness, these symptoms can last for several months before muscles and tissue is affected.
Damaged tissue left untreated over time will form scar tissue. Scar tissue will compromise the mobility of the shoulder. A small chore can become almost impossible to accomplish and movement unbearable.
Laser therapy is safe, painless, non-invasive, effective therapy to reduce pain and swelling allow the body to restore damaged tissue. Laser therapy uses red and infrared light for the relief of pain, to accelerate the healing and decrease inflammation. When the light source is placed against the skin, the photons penetrate several centimeters and get absorbed by the mitochondria, the energy producing part of the cell. This energy fuels many positive physiological responses resulting in the restoration of normal cell function.
Long Term/Cumulative Effects of Laser Therapy:
- More blood flow to the damaged area
- Faster healing of damaged tissue
- Increase in cellular energy
- Improved immune system response allowing the body more resistance to infection
- Reduction in scar tissue
Time and time again our patients have had success with treating frozen shoulders and are able to avoid un-necessary surgeries and painful physical therapy. Laser therapy offers our bodies the opportunity to heal with no side effects and no long term damage.
