Cold Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy (a.k.a. low-level or soft laser therapy) is a non-intrusive/non-toxic procedure that offers pain relief by delivering photons to cells to transform damaged cells into healthy cells. Other benefits include increased cell growth, increased metabolic activity, faster wound healing, anti-inflammatory action, increased vascular activity, reduced fibrous tissue formation and stimulated nerve function.
