What is Laser Therapy and How Does it Work?
Laser therapy, also known as photo biomodulation therapy, is a non-invasive treatment that uses light energy to stimulate a healing process in the tissue. The laser energy penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the cells, producing a cascade of biochemical reactions that promote healing. This process reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, and stiffness, assisting tissue repair and decreasing pain and discomfort.
One of the significant benefits of laser therapy is its ability to provide pain relief without using drugs or surgery. It can be used as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with other physiotherapy modalities such as exercise and manual therapy.
What Conditions Can Laser Therapy Help With?
Laser therapy can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, including:
- Shoulder Bursitis Treatment Perth, such as tendinopathy, rotator cuff strain, and bursitis
- Tennis Elbow Treatment Perth and golfer’s elbow
- Hip bursitis and gluteal tendinopathy

During the laser therapy treatment, the therapist will apply the laser to the affected area for a specific duration of time.

The number of treatments required will vary depending on the condition and the individual’s response.
