Laser Treatment


 What is Laser Therapy and How It Can Help You?

The term Laser is the acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. A laser  is a device that produces such light. Laser therapy is used by some physiotherapists to treat the various musculoskeletal condition. At GB Sports Physiotherapy we work with the best evidence-based laser equipment. 


Laser Therapy is a non-invasive light source treatment that generates a single wavelength of light. It emits no heat, sound, or vibration.


The method of application will depend on your presenting condition. A treatment head or probe is usually applied directly to the tissue being treated. The amount of energy exposed to the tissue is controlled by the physiotherapist. 

What is ILIB Intravascular Laser Irradiation of Blood?

The systemic technique of intravascular application of modified therapeutic laser known as (modified ILIB) consists of the continuous and direct application of therapeutic red laser in the radial artery region. In order to combat free radicals of oxygen, responsible for the premature ageing of the cells and consequently of the tissues.

Based on work carried out by Mester the Russians from 1970 onwards developed  laser intravenous laser therapy , showing its efficacy in the treatment of several chronic and acute pathologies.

  • Respiratory system diseases (Asthma, changes triggered by smoking).

  • Diabetes and its complications

  • Inflammatory diseases

  • Cardiovascular Diseases (infarction and angina)

  • Diseases of the peripheral vascular system and scarring in general.

The laser has antiplatelet,  analgesic, anti-inflammatory and vasodilated effect. "ILIB improves oxygenation and stimulates prostaglandin production, which decreases pain, and serotonin , which generates well-being. The laser also assists in combating the symptoms of PMS, stress, migraine and back pain.

For aesthetic purposes, ILIB brings benefits like rejuvenation, as it combats all free radicals in our body. "It is known as the laser youth serum and is extremely relaxing because a wave of energy travels through the meridians of your body.

What Are The Benefits of  Laser Therapy?

Reduction of inflammation: It can occur within hours to days

Pain relief

Reduction Swollen

Increase Collagen Production

Clinical Effects of Laser Therapy

 Angiogenesis & Neovascularization

An increase in oxygenated blood to the injured tissue accelarates tissue healing.

 Collagen Production

Proper alignment and remodelling of collagen reduces internal scar formation and enhances tissue elasticity.

 Muscle Regeneration & Muscle Atrophy

Repair of damaged muscle fibres and activation of myogenic satellite cells leads to regeneration of muscle tissue.

 Inflamation & Edema

Increase inflammatory mediators such as macrophages, neutrophils and lymphocytes accelerates and resolves the inflammatory process.

 Nerve Regeneration

The proliferation of growth factors promotes neuronal sprouting and myelin formation for optimal nerve recovery.

 Cartilage Production

An increase in chondrocyte and collagen production allows for improved cartilage deposition and joint function.

 Bone Formation

The proliferation of osteocytes and remodelling of bone extracellular matrix results in accelerated bone repair.
