LASER THERAPY

Laser therapy is a non-invasive, pain-free treatment method that uses red and infrared light to target inflamed and injured tissues. The photon energy from the laser penetrates through the skin to the tissue and interacts with the cells to help restore normal cell function and enhances the body's natural healing process.
