Laser Therapy for Pain Management and Medical Disorders
What is Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy is the delivery of light energy, in the form of photons to damaged cells. These photons stimulate mitochondria in the body to produce ATP or energy, transforming cells from a state of illness to a state of health. Laser therapy is used to repair and strengthen tissues, resolve inflammation, and provide pain relief.
Advantages of Laser Therapy
Laser therapy offers superior healing and pain relieving effects when compared to other electrotherapeutic modalities, for acute and chronic problems. Laser therapy is a non-invasive, pain free method to treat muscle, tendon, ligament, connective tissue, bone and skin tissue injury. Laser therapy can also be used in conjunction with acupuncture.
