Is this laser treatment safe for children?

Hi, my daughter had a knee injury while participating in a sports competition. We have consulted a doctor for this and she was fine after the treatment. But now, she is suffering from knee pain. She feels pain when doing intense workouts. We are planning to try some physiotherapy treatments for this. And I shared this with my friend. She told me about laser therapy treatment( http://physiomobility.ca/laser-therapy.html ). She suggested me a clinic in Toronto for undergoing this treatment. I searched for this treatment in the clinic's website. I read that, in this therapy, the laser light is applied to the tissue to stimulate tissue healing after injuries or in chronic pain conditions. This is an effective treatment for sportsperson since it greatly shortens the recovery time and helps the individual to get back to their game. We are planning to take an appointment there. I think this will help her to a speedy recovery. But I heard that the treated area became reddish and looks like sunburn. Is this so? Do we need to concern over this? Also, I want to know the expense of this treatment. If anybody knows about this, please let me know.

    Laser treatment is never safe for anyone. I never recommend laser treatment to anyone. It's not going to be good for your child as well. So please don't do it. Try to cure it with some other method. It's just better to avoid this treatment. Its outcomes would be so bad. It's better not to go that way.

    Mattie, I know you are too worried about your daughter. But I don’t think so laser treatment will prove best. Means a daughter who got injuries through sports is not as big as you have to cure it with laser treatment. Try to consult with someone else. Maybe your friend is suggesting or thinking right but in this case, it’s not suitable.so think about some other treatment. May you find the best solution for your daughter. Wish you good luck.

    Hi Mattie, Hope you are doing great. I suggested you physiotherapy treatment instead of the laser. Becuase physiotherapy is safe and best rather than laser treatment. I know with laser treatment you daughter will fine soon but physiotherapy takes a long time. But the concern with the specialist doctor. God Blessed you and your family.

    It's not that its harmful or something. Try to avoid it. It's just offensive. I don't think you should be worried about this. Everything is going to be alright. Just try to take good care of yourself. I wish everything is alright. Just don't be sad. Always be positive. Everything is going to be alright. We should just need to stay patient and be calm.

    It's not really safe. I hope you shouldn't try it. Unless it's necessary. If you can't deal without it. You can go for it. If you can do it without it. Just forget about it then. Try something else.

    Clinicians are using laser therapy more often than ever before to help reduce pain and inflammation related to many common conditions. Thousands of doctors and patients have experienced the power of laser therapy and are familiar with its therapeutic effects. Current treatments for chronic knee pain and OA include pharmaceutical anti-inflammatories. Painkillers and corticosteroids. Which offer only temporary pain relief at best. With minimal mid to long-term benefits and unfortunately severe negative side effects. With Light Force lasers, treatments are quick. Usually 5-10 minutes depending on the size, depth, and acuteness of the condition being treated. High-power lasers are able to deliver a lot of energy in a small amount of time. So therapeutic dosages are achieved quickly. For people with packed schedules. Patients and clinicians alike. Fast and effective treatments are a must. Patients receiving treatments with higher-power lasers also frequently report a rapid decrease in pain. For someone suffering from chronic pain, this effect can be particularly pronounced.
