Laser therapy involves the use of a small, handheld device which emits a high-intensity beam of light known as a laser. The laser painlessly penetrates damaged tissue or areas of the body that have experienced injury, trauma or pain and triggers a natural healing mechanism from within. The therapeutic laser uses cutting edge technology to manage pain, improve mobility and speed healing following injury or surgery.
