Laser Therapy in Port Talbot

Learn about the laser treatments offered at Taibach Shockwave Clinic, how the technology works and the benefits of having such therapies.

Our Class IV Laser Therapy is a new and innovative treatment option for acute injuries and chronic complaints alike before we even mention the regenerative/healing benefits to tissues. It is a non-invasive, drug-free procedure that uses laser energy to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes giving excellent outcomes. The result is relief from pain, improved function, addressing stubborn injuries and a restored quality of life. It is highly effective at treating long term conditions but is also a fantastic choice for muscle spasm, sciatica and arthritic joint pain.

Here at Taibach Clinic we also regularly manage post surgical patients as Laser Therapy increases healing times meaning tissues repair more quickly and a speedier return to normality is a reality for many.

Laser therapy is classed as a medical treatment and uses focused laser light to stimulate a process called photo-biomodulation. In short, light from the laser enters the structures and stimulates a healing cascade within the tissues. Laser therapy does this by stimulating the body’s cells to produce a substance called ATP. ATP provides the cells with the energy needed to repair themselves. This is how Lasers can significantly speed up healing times. It also increases circulation, reduces swelling and reduces inflammation in the area treated, resulting in effective pain reduction and injury healing.

The treatment is FDA approved and provides patients with a non-invasive, non-pharmacological alternative for pain relief and injury management.

Who can have Laser Therapy?

Laser Therapy is suitable for the vast majority of patients from sportspeople to the immobile and especially useful with the older population as it is gentle and focussed. Whether you have an acute sports injury like a hamstring strain, a tendinitis such as Achilles tendinitis a chronic pain condition like plantar fasciitis, a long-term diagnosis such as fibromyalgia or arthritic changes to the joints, a Laser will help to reduce inflammation and pain levels in the areas treated.

Class IV Laser Therapy Benefits

The benefits of class IV laser therapy include reduced pain and swelling as well as improved range of motion but a class IV laser has some very interesting effects that we don’t notice as obviously.

A class 4 laser increases tissue regeneration which is why you heal faster but it also accelerates soft tissue and bone repair. This kind of laser therapy can also improve nerve function as well as impact your cells to increase cell metabolism, enzymatic responses, collagen production, and promote angiogenesis (the creation of new blood vessels). So yes, you walk away from class IV laser therapy feeling better but the therapy continues to work on the cellular level to improve your musculoskeletal health after you leave your treatment session.

  • Muscle spasm
  • Acute and Chronic joint pain

Pain management

Many of our patients come to us because they are suffering high levels of pain and benefit noticeably from Laser Therapy. The cause of the pain can be varied but does include fibromyalgia, inflammatory conditions, arthropathies, chronic trauma, neuropathic pain or neuropathies and chronic arthritis. You don’t have to have a new injury to benefit from Laser Therapy.

Now you might be wondering what it feels like to get class IV laser therapy. We find that many patients think that laser therapy will hurt and they’re pleasantly surprised to learn that they will feel some soothing warmth in the area we’re treating but certainly no pain. Class IV lasers provide pain-free relief to many of our patients and can also be used in conjunction with other treatments if needed.
