Cold Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy utilizes the body’s own healing powers by stimulating cellular activity to promote healing and alleviate pain.  This FDA-cleared modality effectively treats acute pain, chronic conditions and post-operative pain. Laser therapy reduces inflammation, resulting in pain reduction;and especially effective for post-op orthopedic surgeries and arthritis, 

Laser therapy treatment is safe, painless and fast. Treatments to deeper tissues are administered in 5 to 10 minutes. Typically, even chronic patients exhibit improvement after 3 to 5 treatment sessions. Despite short treatment times, laser therapy treatments initiate a healing process that continues to actively reduce inflammation for up to 24 hours after treatment.

A laser therapy session is relaxing due to the warming sensation at the site. Multiple sessions are encouraged in order for therapy to be most effective. 

Underwater Treadmill Therapy
