High Intensity Laser Therapy

How Does Laser Therapy Work?

The light energy from our Class 4, therapeutic laser stimulates healing within your cells. It is similar to photosynthesis, when plants convert light energy to food. The light from the laser stimulates cell regeneration and DNA & RNA repairs inside of the cells, increases blood flow, and increases metabolic activity.  It also decreases chronic pain by “resetting” the nerves.

High Intensity Laser Therapy is different from cold (or low level) laser therapy. Our laser is many times stronger than a cold laser, enabling it to reach deeper into the cellular tissue and treat surrounding tissues to provided longer lasting results for our patients.


What to Expect

The light from the laser feels warm on the body.  Many patients find the soothing, warming sensation to be very relaxing. It is important to know that laser therapy requires a series of treatments in order to be effective.  While some patients feel relief after just a few treatments, for most the response is more subtle and gradual.

Benefits of Laser Therapy:

• Reduces pain
• Minimizes swelling
• Softens scar tissue
• Speeds tissue repair and cell growth
• Improves blood flow
• Improves nerve function
• Resets chronic pain cycle
