Laser Therapy is used to increase the speed of tissue repair; quality and strength of tissue during healing; resolve inflammation; and give pain relief. Laser is a pain-free, surgery-free, drug-free treatment.
Laser Therapy is a type of medical treatment that uses light to help the body heal itself. When cell function is impaired by injury or illness, laser light therapy can help to restore normal activity in cells and promote healing and reduce pain. The effects of laser light therapy are primarily chemical, not thermal (heat). The laser light is delivered through a non-invasive hand-piece to treat the affected area. Laser light energy enters the tissues, without damaging it, and is absorbed by special molecules called chromophores which convert light energy into chemical energy, like ATP--the cell's own fuel and other important substances, that the body uses to repair itself. There are no known side effects with this treatment.
