Laser Therapy

Patients are provided with a safe, effective, and relaxing therapy that uses the body’s natural healing functions to relieve pain, increase joint mobility, increase tissue integrity, and promote cell regeneration.

The treatment works by delivering energy to specific parts of the body in the form of billions of photons of light.  This energy is absorbed on a cellular level and transforms it into chemical energy, which the body in return can use to make its natural healing capabilities much more efficient.

The bio-stimulating effect of laser therapy causes a decrease in inflammation and pain, simultaneously aiding in tissue regeneration and healing.

  • Lower back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Arthritis
  • Heel pain
  • Tennis elbow
  • Tendinitis
  • Sprains and strains
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
