Medical Laser Therapy

Laser therapy has been clinically proven as an effective treatment of several acute and chronic musculoskeletal disorders, acute and chronic wounds, and acne, and pain management, anti-ageing and smoking addiction.

At Blue Spruce Laser Clinic and Wellness Centre we use only the most advanced medical Laser technology to promote healing and health. We have partnered with the global leaders in laser therapy to use their patented technology and unique designs that enable increased penetration, and with a combination of different laser wavelengths and patented protocols we see significantly improved therapeutic results, across many different areas of medicine including pain management, rehabilitation, dermatology, dentistry, neurology, orthopedics, acupuncture and also for intra-articular and interstitial laser therapy.

How it works

When applied to the skin, Laser light produces no sensation and do not burn the skin. Because of the low absorption by human skin, Laser light can penetrate deeply into the tissues where it has a biostimulative (healing) effect. Low Level Laser Therapy promotes improved cellular repair and stimulation of the immune, lymphatic, and vascular systems.

Red, infrared, green and blue lasers are used for different penetration depths and for different biological effects in the tissue. The lasers can be fixed to the skin with self-adhesive tubes or put together in special applicators for radiation of bigger areas. The highly focused laser light enters the tissue and leads to biostimulating and reparative effects on the tissue without any side-effects.

Benefits

  • Anti-Inflammatory: Proliferation on immune cells leads to the combat of inflammations and an accelerated healing of wound as well as an increased endorphin disbursement, increase of the ATP production and increased nervous cell potential
  • Cell Repair: Increased leukocyte phagocytosis, boosted neovascularisation, increased collagen formation and protein biosynthesis. It also leads to an improved cell respiration and stabilisation of the membrane potential
  • Membrane Stabilization and Pain Management: pump activity for maintaining the membrane potential, Membrane stabilisation leads to blocking of impulses, reducing the transmissions of pain sensations
  • No modification of intact cells
  • Energetic build-up of sick cells

Applications

Pain Management

Come try some of our lasers application for local pain management. Our lasers are combined in an applicator that irradiates the pain are with a high intensity, which leads to not only pain reduction but regeneration of the disease area. Some optimal effects are: 

  • spasmolytic effects
  • increase of microcirculation
  • tissue heating
  • Patient Rehabilitation

Laser therapy is also found very beneficial in physical rehabilitation. Patients has shown great success especially in sports medicine when used for treatments of distortions, tendinopathies and overload damages of the skeletal muscle system

Transcranial Effect

The application of laser therapy has shown very positive effects leading to the improvement in the after-treatment of stroke or other degenerative brain diseases.

The transcranial infrared laser therapy reduces the infarct area and improves the intracerebral microcirculation.

Dermatology Effect

This therapy is used to revitalise and regenerate the skin and wrinkles; laser therapy helps to regenerate cell metabolism and purify connecting tissue with increase of the energy transport processes.

Intra-Articular Laser Therapy

Laser therapy technology is fast evolving in today’s world. The new technology has evolved which enables direct intra-articular treatment of injured joints (e.g. knee or shoulder joint).

Areas of Application:

  • knee joints inflammation
  • Hip joints inflammation
  • Chronic shoulder syndromes
  • Arthrosis of the ankle
  • Interstitial Laser Therapy

A recent technique, called percutaneous interstitial laser therapy (with the use of a sterile catheter), allows us to bring the laser light even more powerful into the depth of the tissue for a successful treatment of herniated disks or spinal stenosis or even for an intraarticular treatment. 

With this technique it is possible to irradiate directly inside of damaged joints which leads to much better therapeutic results.

Areas of Application:

  • Chronic spinal illnesses
  • Slipped discs
  • Scar pain after slipped disc surgery
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Neural lesions
  • Deep tendinitis and strains
