One of the primary issues that needs to be addressed for people in pain is the inflammation and swelling.  If the inflammation and swelling is not reduced, some forms of therapy can be very painful and healing time could be prolonged.  Lasers are excellent for addressing the inflammation, swelling and edema of an injury.

Improving the circulation into the area of pain is very important.  Laser is very effective for improving the blood flow into the site of injury and assisting in draining the swelling away from the damaged tissue.  These are two major reasons why this office utilizes laser therapy.
