Cold Laser (also known as Low Level Laser) is an FDA-approved, advanced technology that works to eliminate pain & reduce inflammation in the body in a safe, painless & non-invasive way. Cold Laser utilizes specific wavelengths of light to penetrate deep into the tissue & stimulate regeneration at the cellular level. People suffering from chronic musculoskeletal pain or inflammation that “just won’t completely go away” have tried other common treatments without relief. Cold Laser may be the solution.
Cold Laser treatment eliminates the need for drugs or surgery! Treatment is quick, convenient, with no known side-effects. Plus, Harvard University studies found Cold Laser therapy to be equal to or more effective than other forms of therapy. Cold Laser triggers biological reactions within the cells to stimulate healing & reduce inflammation. Treatment positively stimulates all cell types including muscle, ligament, cartilage, nerves, etc.
