- Pain relief – temporary inhibition of nerve conditions in nerve fibres.
- Tissue repair – rapid regeneration of skin, muscle, tendons, ligament, bone and nerves.
- Resolution of inflammation leading to permanent pain relief
We provide Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), or cold laser therapy, which is proven to offer a safe, non-invasive and painless solution to both acute injuries and chronic pain. A treatment modality backed by Harvard University and NASA research.
GP, Dr Shikha Parmar, specialised in providing a drug-free safe, effective treatment solution in Melbourne for acute injuries and chronic pain using low level laser light therapy also termed Photobiomodulation or PBM Therapy.
PBM Therapy appears too good to be true as it does many things, but really it does just one thing and it does it very well and that is, it reduces oxidative stress.
Oxidative stress is accepted as the underlying trigger for most diseases and degenerative conditions. It is also a component in the inflammatory phase of acute and chronic injuries.
Unlike drugs and surgery, PBM Therapy
Over 400 Randomised Controlled Trials have been published using PBM Therapy devices, and the technology has featured in over 4,000 laboratory studies. PBM Therapy is used in thousands of clinics, hospitals and elite sports institutions in over 70 nations.
This treatment has no adverse effects, as the lasers used are not sufficiently strong to damage cells.
Low level laser therapy uses light energy to stimulate cells, helping them to function optimally, which in turn encourages the healing process. Once the photons find the injured tissues, they stimulate and energise the cells to repair and strengthen at a remarkably fast rate. Collagen production is stimulated so the ligaments and tissues grow stronger than with normal healing.
Whether your pain has been caused by a sports injury, accident or has developed over time, low level laser therapy is proven to offer effective, long-term relief from aches and pains.
LLLT has undergone over 1000 published laboratory studies and is already proven in over 200 successful randomised double blind controlled clinical trials (RCT’s).
The intensity of LLLT lasers and LED’s is not high like a surgical laser. There is no heating effect but the effects are through light stimulation to cells, so LLLT therapy is completely painless. Unlike other electrotherapy modalities, it does not aim to alter a cell or tissues, instead it enhances what a cell would do naturally by providing energy to the mitochondria, the power house of cells.
Users include British and US military, premier division soccer teams, Olympic teams, Formula 1, rugby and cricket team therapists as well as specialist pain clinics in the UK and USA.
