What is Laser Therapy and how does it work?

Laser therapy is a therapeutic treatment that uses light energy (photons) for tissue healing and pain reduction.  The light energy penetrates deeply into damaged cells and stimulates cellular activity.  As a result of exposure to the laser, the cells of tendons, ligaments and muscles repair themselves.  Light energy enters damaged cells and stimulated inter-cellular activity.  This reduces pain in the area and speeds recovery of the damaged cells.  Once the cells recover, the healing process is complete. 

Most common indications for therapy
