Laser Therapy

Pro-Active Physical Therapy offers Laser Therapy as a treatment modality. Laser Therapy treatments are becoming increasingly popular for patients seeking alternative pain management techniques. Laser Therapy Treatment is a non-invasive therapy that makes use of intense beams of light of specific wavelengths to help reduce pain related to injury. LASER stands for ‘Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation.’ Laser use in therapy are often referred to as Cold Lasers, Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), or High Power Laser Therapy (HPLT). The Low-Level Laser Therapy utilizes red infrared light on areas of injury. Laser Therapy emits no heat, sound, or vibration.

Laser Therapy is believed to affect the function of connective tissue cells, accelerate connective tissue repair, and act as an anti-inflammatory agent. Laser therapy is in the American College of Physicians Clinical Practice Guideline for the treatment of chronic low back pain. In contrast to surgical lasers, the therapeutic Laser gently passes through your skin without breaking the skin or causing discomfort. Laser Therapy is considered by many professionals and patients to be a very effective tool in improving injury and condition.
