Using Biomodulation (Laser Therapy) for Pain Management

A national epidemic – that you can address

Research suggests that chronic pain affects between one-third and one-half of the population of the UK – corresponding to just under 28 million adults. This figure is likely to increase further in line with an ageing population.


UK and Ireland


Laser Therapy features a process known as Photo biomodulation. Photons penetrate the tissue, which causes a boost in cellular metabolism and a reduction in pain and inflammation. It is effective for chronic and acute musculoskeletal conditions including back and neck pain, injuries from accidents, and athletic injuries to muscles and joints, through:

  • Relaxation of muscles
  • Relaxation of muscle spasm
  • Relief of minor muscle pain
  • Relief of joint stiffness
  • Relief of minor arthritis pain
  • Relief of minor sprains and strains
  • Relief of minor muscular back pain

High intensity (Class 4) laser therapy enables the clinician to modulate the nervous system to alleviate pain without the harmful side effects associated with conventional analgesics and anti-inflammatory medication. This event will discuss how laser therapy works including its effect on red blood cell microcirculation to damaged tissue, and improved oxygenation. It will also focus on pain and inflammation, and laser therapy’s effectiveness on muscle, tissue, ligaments and bone.
