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

During each painless treatment, laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen and nutrients to the damaged area, This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.
