Laser Therapy

What is Laser Therapy?

Laser therapy is a modern therapy that uses laser light as a form of therapy. The OptonPro laser allows for a very high therapeutic application of laser therapy in a very short amount of time.

How does Laser Therapy work?

Laser therapy’s main effects come from the type of heat that the laser produces deep within the treatment site. This heat produces much circulation and promotes healing of chronic soft tissue pathologies, ideal for scar tissue release post-surgical or post-traumatic. The laser light has a high affinity for mitochondrial activity and this promotes healing of injured tissues. The heat generated from laser therapy helps to break down scar tissue and allow for new and better healing to take place within the tissues.
