Learn What Low Level Laser Therapy Treatment Can Do For You:
What is it?
Low Level Laser Therapy is the use of therapeutic (or cold) laser light to provide relief from pain, eliminate inflammation, and repair damaged tissue. The laser system can penetrate up to 4 inches into tissue, to promote cellular regeneration at the source of injury.
How Does it Work?
Specific wavelengths of light are absorbed and transformed into chemical energy to accelerate the natural healing processes in the body. Laser jumpstarts the healing process by stimulating the mitochondria in the target cells causing an increased production rate of ATP, which provides cells energy to heal tissue at accelerated rates.
