Cold Laser Therapy: Most patients see a positive result in one to three treatments. Therapy lasers use light to heal and treat a variety of issues. The laser light, when focused on an area of treatment, stimulates individual cells within the area causing them to produce more energy and natural pain.  This in turn increases circulation to the area which helps to reduce pain and inflammation.
