I. What is Sports Injury and Tennis Elbow?
Athletic Injuries refers to various injuries that occur during exercise, such as sprains and contusions. The damage site is related to sports and special technical features. For example, the injured parts of gymnasts are mostly wrists, shoulders and waists, which are related to the support, shoulder shift, jumping and tossing in gymnastics.
Tennis elbows occur mostly in tennis players and javelin throwers. The pain is caused by a chronic tearing injury caused by repeated force on the forearm extensor. The patient feels pain in the affected part while gripping or lifting the object.
Damage caused by sports injuries can cause damage to cells that make up soft tissue. The chemicals released by these damaged cells cause natural inflammatory reactions in the body, causing redness, swelling, fever and pain in the injured area. Persistent or recurrent inflammation can make athletes susceptible to early-onset arthritis or joint degenerative changes.

III. What's the Principle of Sports Injuryies Laser Therapy Treatment?
Depending on the conditions and goals of the treatment, the laser pulse can be adjusted to penetrate deeper and more aggressively into the skin tissue. By a large device that emits multiple laser panels at a time or a handheld device for a smaller target area, the light energy will pass through the skin layer to cells and tissues that cause pain and inflammation. The laser device is placed against the skin on the treated area. The light energy can be absorbed and converted into biochemical energy that stimulates cells. This activates the natural healing process of the cells, reduces pain, increases blood flow, and stimulates tissue repair.
Laser therapy can ignite enzyme production, stimulate mitochondria, increase vasodilation and lymphatic drainage, ATP synthesis, and enhance collagen-forming substances to prevent scar tissue. This is a key step in reducing chronic amyotrophic myofascial pain syndrome.
