Low Level Laser

 

The Healing Nature of Light

First developed over 30 years ago, phototherapy uses a specific type of light to penetrate the skin's surface and underlying tissues to stimulate the body's natural repair processes. The result is faster healing and reduced pain, swelling and inflammation.

Phototherapy can help improve quality of life for those who experience pain, sports injuries and rehabilitative conditions. Phototherapy is a natural, effective, non-invasive, drug-free solution that is FDA cleared and Health Canada licensed.

Applying light produced by low level laser and superluminous diodes stimulates normal cellular functions that lead to faster wound healing, pain relief and accelerated functional recovery.

Phototherapy has been used successfully to treat athletic injuries, acute & chronic conditions, repetitive strain disorders, tissue healing and much more. By providing the extra energy required for healing, the tissue is able to heal itself naturally.

This innovative therapeutic alternative may also eliminate the need for painful, debilitating surgeries and drug therapies so often accompanied by harmful side effects.
