Cold Laser Therapy

Laser therapy, also known as low-level laser or light therapy, is a treatment that utilizes specific types of light to interact with tissues. It is used to eliminate pain and promote healing for a variety of medical conditions, including but not limited to; soft tissue and sports injuries, arthritic conditions, repetitive stress injuries, wound healing / post surgery recovery. 

How Does It Work?

Laser therapy is the use of light from a Low Intensity Laser Diode or an array of Superluminous Diodes to eliminate pain, accelerate healing and decrease inflammation. LLLT is also known as cold laser, low intensity laser therapy or photobiomodulation.

Laser therapy does not heat or cut tissue, unlike high intensity lasers. Many pharmacological treatments mask pain or only address the symptoms of the disease; laser therapy treats the underlying condition or pathology to promote healing. This means that the treatments are effective and the benefits of laser therapy are long lasting.
