Is chronic pain or injury preventing you from reaching peak athletic performance? Many athletes are turning to a highly effective way to treat sports injuries…
RECURRING OR CHRONIC INJURIES
Many athletes, whether professional or amateur, have experienced injuries at some point in their lives. Some of these injuries are persistent and tend to recur from time to time, and in some cases, prevent one from achieving the goal of peak performance. Many professional athletes have ended their careers due to the accumulation of untreated injuries, or from returning too soon to intense athletic performance after injury.
Most chronic sports injuries are the result of a gradual weakening of a body part through repetitive movement without sufficient time for rest and recovery. coMra therapy has been successfully used to treat long-term and persistent injuries in a non-invasive and non-toxic way, enabling the body to fully heal any recurring pain, weakness or damaged tissues. This includes the primary sites of localised injury, such as torn ligaments or damaged joints, but even more than this, coMra therapy effectively aids the body in regeneration and restoration of damaged nerves, muscles, organs and tissue.
RECOVERY AND REGENERATION
While an athlete may return to their sport after recovering from an injury, because there is no longer any pain or discomfort during exercise and perhaps no longer any external sign of injury, very often the full recovery process has not been completed. There are several delicate processes taken care of by tissues, such as nerve fibres, which require more time to fully heal than muscle fibres, bones and tendons. With injuries such as ruptured ligaments, nerve signalling disorders may occur, which means that information sent between the body and the brain is affected or disrupted. This may negatively impact the speed and fluidity of the musculoskeletal response and cognitive function and therefore affect performance which relies on optimum speed. For a professional athlete in a competitive environment where things occur within hundredths of a second, a slower reaction may result in triggering an old injury or causing a new one. This is why it is not unusual for athletes to experience one injury after another.
coMra therapy combines low-level laser therapy with the healing radiances of colour, magnetism and (in the Delta) ultrasound to treat pain, restore ailing energy reserves in the body and regenerate tissues, muscles, organs and bone. Read our coMra 101 Blog and How it Works: Coherent Multi-radiance Therapy Blog for more on how it works.
With coMra therapy, one can address injuries before they become detrimental to a training program. The early application of coMra therapy on the area of concern with one of coMra’s specific treatment protocols will speed up the recovery process, allowing for continued training whilst ensuring the body is getting the support it needs. This will allow the body to adapt and grow stronger, sustainably, in the midst of a training cycle.1

A Full Contact fighter from Miami, USA, underwent reconstructive knee surgery on his Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) due to a direct kick to his knee while competing.
“During a match my leg was in the air and my foot was pinned on the opponent’s hip as the direct kick occurred, which caused my ACL to tear. I underwent an ACL reconstruction with allograft (cadaver ligament) and excision of loose bodies in the knee. After the surgery my knee was very stiff and swollen. I felt that coMra-Therapy definitely accelerated my gains in range of motion and also helped with general healing, as well as with the pain and constant throbbing and tightness of the joint complex. I felt as though the therapy was able to alleviate a lot of the pressure and speed the natural recovery process.”
