What is Laser Therapy?
FDA Approved Medical technology. Low level laser therapy has been used for over 40 years to relieve pain, remove scars, heal wounds and regenerate nerves.
Low level laser therapy(LLLT) causes tissues to heal quicker, muscle, skin and nerve- 66% faster according to an FDA study. LLLT works at the cellular level.
Housed within the mitochondria, the cell energy manufacturer, are receptors that are capable of absorbing light. During a laser treatment, the light will penetrate the skin and is absorbed by these receptors within the mitochondria. Stimulating these receptors with light promotes energy production, biochemical reactions, protein and growth factor synthesis, cell growth and proliferation and enhanced oxygen and blood flow.

Laser Therapy can quickly and dramatically reduce acute and chronic pain by:
- reducing inflammation
- reducing free radical production and oxidative stress
- enhancing tissue repair
- improving blood flow
- improving cellular energy production (increases production of ATP, improving mitochondrial function)
Laser Therapy has been FDA Cleared for use with Neck and Heel/Foot Pain. It has also shown great benefits clinically with:
- Knee pain
- Shoulder pain
- Acute and chronic concussion symptoms
- Low back pain, herniated discs and sciatica
- Shingles/herpes zoster
- foot pain
- Spinal pain
