Laser therapy has an anti-inflammatory, regenerative and bio-stimulating effect on pain. The word “laser” indicates an amplification of light based on the stimulated emission of electromagnetic radiation (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation). It stimulates the collagen synthesis helping the wound healing process, reducing pain and swelling, thinning scared tissues and raising immunity.
Laser therapy in treating skeletomuscular disorders
Clinical efficiency of the laser, especially in treating diseases has been proven. The laser can be used on the following:
– painful trigger-points or points sensitive to pain
– directly on the place of damage
– acupressure points
– nerve roots and/or nerve fibres
The main indications for laser application are the following:
– soft tissue injuries, including inflammatory and traumatic injuries (sprains, tendinopathy and hematomas react very favourably to laser therapy)
– pain relief, including acute, i.e. post-operational pain, and especially with chronically painful syndromes and neuralgia
– wound healing
– arthritic conditions of various etiology, especially the ones including the smaller joints of the arms and/or feet
The services provided by the Tranfić Policlinic are aimed at the main goals set up in working with patients: removing pain, normalising functions and preventing physical suffering. We invest into knowledge and equipment in the way that therapy results be as fast as possible, with maximum patient security. In the earliest phase of pain and reduced functions, we use the laser, electroanalgesia, magnetic therapy, manual medicine (chiropractic) when possible, lymphatic drainage… Positional therapy is very important in that phase. In the later in-between phase we may use massages, manual medicine, electrotherapy, vacuum, electronic traction, short wave diathermy, infrared and ultraviolet lamps, balance table, kinesis-therapy… In the post-operative rehabilitation phase and recovery after a stroke (cerebrovascular accident), as well as at the end, rehabilitation needs to begin immediately, with a careful choice of procedures. Early rehabilitation significantly reduces the recovery period and yields better results. Losing time causes significant health and financial damage because the function of the damaged part of the body deteriorates quickly without rehabilitation. We pay equal attention to rehabilitation from neurological disorders (stroke…), traumas (dislocations and breakings), correction of the spine in kids and young people, rehabilitation of the urinary tract (incontinence). Retrieving of the function of the recovered part of the body, as well as the organism as a whole, is always at the centre of our interests.
