What is Laser Therapy?
Laser Therapy is a surgery free, drug free, non-invasive treatment to reduce pain, reduce inflammation, and promote healing.
The Class IV Therapy Laser utilizes the deep penetration of red and infrared light to promote soft tissue healing and enhanced relief from pain. It can be used as a stand-alone therapy or to complement other treatment modalities.
How does it work?
The light beam enters the cells producing photons which stimulate increased energy, within the cells, to optimize their role in the natural healing process. Laser light is a painless non-invasive treatment to stimulate the body’s own normal healing process. Stimulation of normal cellular function results in faster wound repair and enhanced pain relief.
