Laser Light Therapy in Delhi
Laser therapies are medical treatments that use focused light. Laser light is a very special kind of light. Unlike most light sources, it is tuned to very specific wavelengths. This allows it to be focused into powerful beams. Laser light is so intense it can be used to shape diamonds or cut steel. In medicine, lasers offer surgeons the ability to work very precisely. They can focus on a small area and damage less of the surrounding tissue. Patients who have laser therapy may experience less pain, swelling, and scarring than with traditional surgery. However, laser therapy is expensive. It may also require repeated treatments.
For over 40 years, low level laser (or soft laser) has been used by health professionals all over the world for treating acute and chronic musculoskeletal pains, swelling, joint and cartilage problems, inflammation and soft tissue injuries. It can be used in conjunction with or as an alternative to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) and various other pain relief medications.
Laser therapy techniques vary based on the specific procedure being performed. For example, if a tumor is being treated, a flexible endoscope may be used to direct the laser. This is a thin, lighted tube used to view tissues inside the body. The endoscope is inserted through an opening in the body, such as the mouth. The surgeon then aims the laser and shrinks or destroys the tumor. In contrast, for cosmetic procedures, lasers are often applied directly to the skin.
