    Laser Pain Therapy

    GP, Dr Shikha Parmar, has a special interest in providing a drug-free safe, effective treatment solution in Melbourne for tendinopathy and muscle strains 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 Hamstring Strain recovery.

    Unlike drugs and surgery, PBM Therapy

    • actually promotes regeneration
    • reduces inflammation and pain
    • is non-toxic
    • is non-invasive
    • has no side effects

    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.

    Low Level Laser Therapy Treats Hamstring Strains

    Low Level Laser Therapy uses red and near infrared light energy over injuries to stimulate cellular repair. LLLT has a powerful anti-inflammatory effect as well as a healing effect on the inflamed. LLLT is completely safe and has no effect on normal tissues.  LLLT treats the underlying cause of the injury unlike pain medication which just masks the pain. Ligaments, muscles and tissues grow stronger than with normal healing offering effective, long-term relief from aches and pains.

    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.

    By improving circulation and increasing cellular repair functions LLLT provides an environment for your body’s own natural healing processes to be activated and restored. Once normal immune processes are restored, the excessive inflammation is reduced and healing can begin.

    Rest, activity modification, heat application and sometimes support splints assist in the healing process. As tissue repair proceeds graduated exercise is introduced to ensure new tissue growth is encouraged to be laid down in the correct orientation.

    The end result is resolution of inflammation and restoration of healthy muscles and local soft tissues. Once tissues are healed, pain is eliminated and normal range of motion and function is restored

    The 3 main benefits of LLLT for Hamstring Strain are:

    • Tissue repair – rapid regeneration of skin, muscle, tendons, ligament, bone and nerves.
    • Resolution of inflammation leading to effective, lasting pain relief
