What is Laser Therapy?

Laser (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) therapy, or "photobiomodulation", is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near infrared) to create therapeutic effect.  These effects include: improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation, and decreased swelling.

Cellular Effects of Laser Therapy

During Laser Therapy, the infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level and increases the metabolic activity within the cell, improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane.  This process initiates the production of cellular energy (ATP) that leads to a cascade of beneficial effects, increasing cellular function and health.

Physiological Effects of Laser Therapy


  • decreased pain levels
  • reduced inflammation
  • increased tissue proliferation and regeneration
  • accelerated soft tissue and bone repair
  • increased tissue tensile strength
  • enhanced nerve regeneration & function
  • increased cell metabolism 
  • increased enzymatic responses
  • increased cell membrane potentials
  • increased microcirculation & vasodilation
  • increased lymphatic flow                 
  • increased collagen production
  • enhanced angiogenesis (creation of new blood vessels)

Numerous Studies Show That Laser Therapy Can With:

  • tendinopathies
  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow ) and medial epicondylitis (golfer's elbow)
  • ligament sprains
  • muscle strains
  • repetitive stress/strain injuries
  • plantar fasciitis
  • osteoarthritis of shoulder, back, knee
  • fibromyalgia
  • sports injuries
  • auto & work related injuries
