How does it work?

Laser Therapy is proven to biostimulate tissue, enhance repair and growth, and decrease inflammation and pain. Cellular Effects of Laser Therapy occur when photons of therapeutic laser light interact with cells. Higher adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP) levels are produced, cell membrane permeability is increased, and blood and lymphatic vessels are vasodilated. These events then lead to a cascade of beneficial effects increasing cellular energy and health.

Laser Therapeutic Effects

During each treatment, laser energy increases circulation drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area.  This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.
