What is Laser Therapy
Laser energy increases blood circulation, drawing oxygen and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness and pain.
Laser therapy can alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and accelerate recovery from a wide range of acute and chronic clinical conditions. As rehab specialists know, the main goal of treatment when treating painful debilitating conditions is to facilitate improved function and mobility. Laser therapy is drug free, surgery free, safe, painless, long-term pain management system to help make your goal a reality.

How it Works
Low-Level Light Laser Therapy (LLLT) is when LIGHT (photons) are applied to tissue and light is absorbed in the mitochondria within your body. The mitochondria is the part of the cell that stimulates healing and produces protein and collagen.
We refer to it as the CELLULAR POWER PLANT of the body. This power plant increases protein synthesis and cell proliferation which accelerates tissue repair and pain control increasing ATP synthesis (ENERGY).
