Why Laser Therapy?


Clinical studies and real-world use over several decades have proven that laser therapy alleviates pain and inflammation, reduces swelling, stimulates nerve regeneration and cells involved in tissue repair.  Watch the animation below to understand how laser therapy impacts healing on a cellular level. Schedule an in-office demonstration to feel the soothing power of a Companion Therapy Laser for yourself.
