​Laser Therapy Benefits

Through the use of infrared light, laser penetrates deep below the skin and gets absorbed by cells, which increases physiological processes. The following are laser therapy benefits:

1) restores normal cell function

2) reduces pain

3) reduces swelling

4) reduces inflammation

5) increases healing and tissue repair

Note: Laser therapy is also used for low back pain, neck pain, mid back pain, ankle pain, shoulder pain, wrist pain such as carpal tunnel syndrome, elbow pain and more.
