We are excited to be able to offer low intensity laser therapy for sports injuries, arthritis and a variety of other chronic or degenerative conditions.

The healing potential of low intensity laser therapy extends to a wide range of medical conditions, some of which are listed below.

This exciting new technology involves the application of light energy at specific power levels in order to penetrate the tissues of your body. These particles of energy are absorbed by a variety of small molecules within your cells, a process that initiates a number of positive physiological responses.

In essence, light energy is converted into biochemical energy. The result is that normal cell structure and function are restored. The characteristics of the therapeutic light beam permit penetration of deep tissues without affecting normal cells.

It should be noted that the treatment aims to cure the pathology, rather than control the symptoms, which is the usual approach for the management of pain.
