Effective Treatment at our Worthing Sports Injury Clinic

At our sports injury clinic, we use the latest medical Class 4 Laser and Low Level Laser which are designed to stimulate blood supply to an injured area, eliminate inflammation fast and heal injured tissues or swollen joints. Dependant on your specific condition and the best treatment protocols for your condition, your chiropractor in Worthing will use one of two possible modalities of laser therapy.

Low-Level Laser Therapy

The type of LLLT we use in our Worthing sports injury clinic will depend on your requirements, matching the power density and wavelength to your needs. The treatment uses a safe light source and unlike lasers used during eye or cancer surgery, there are no harmful effects on your body and we will provide you with protective goggles.

Class 4 Laser

Our Class 4 Laser is used for chronic conditions that do not respond to conventional care. The high power density setting is used to reach deep tissues as the wavelength can progress deeper to provide pain relief, stimulate injured cells and encourage faster healing of muscle tears and inflammation for faster pain relief. Class 4 Laser treatment is particularly effective for neck pain, jaw pain, back pain, chronic sciatica, knee stiffness, hip bursitis, shin splints, frozen shoulder and tennis/ golfers elbow where conventional medical treatments have failed.
