What is LASER Therapy?
Laser treatment (also known as phototherapy and low level laser therapy) involves the application of low power light to injuries and lesions to stimulate healing and reduce pain. The beam of light can be concentrated with high energies to focus on a specific area. It is used to increase the speed, quality and strength of tissue repair, resolve inflammation and give pain relief.
