Q. How does laser therapy work?
A. Cells that are damaged and poorly oxygenated as a result of inflammation, swelling, or trauma have been shown to have a significantly higher response to laser therapy than normal healthy cells. At a cellular level there are photoreceptors that, when stimulated by deep penetrating photons, activate a biochemical cascade of events resulting in increased DNA/RNA synthesis and cellular proliferation. The product of these reactions is rapid regeneration, normalization and healing of damaged cellular tissue. Photonic stimulation is the trigger for these metabolic changes.
Q. What kind of pain do you treat?
A. Arthritis pain, fibromyalgia, musculoskeletal pain, soft tissue injuries, migraine headaches, back pain, and spinal conditions, epicondylitis (tennis elbow), carpal tunnel syndrome, neuropathic pain, plantar fasciitis, sports injuries, sprains, strains, knee pain, hamstring tears, as well as many additional joint, muscle, circulatory and inflammatory conditions.
