Therapeutic laser treatments stimulate and repair the body's cells.
Cancer patients experience a lot of aches and pains. Therapeutic laser treatments use the body’s own natural healing systems to relieve pain, increase joint mobility, increase tissue integrity, and promote cell regeneration.
What is Laser Therapy?
Theralase therapeutic laser therapy is a safe, effective, non-invasive procedure used to treat acute or chronic pain. This Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions, including lymphedema, using the body’s own natural healing systems to repair damaged cells. Within a short period of time and without side effects, you can regain the active and pain-free lifestyle you knew before your injury or illness occurred.
How Does Laser Therapy Work?
Therapeutic lasers use light energy to stimulate cells in the body to produce chemicals that are involved in the healing process. The body absorbs this laser light and transforms it into chemical energy, which the body then uses to trigger its own tissue repairs. This bio-stimulating effect causes inflammation and pain to decrease while increasing tissue regeneration and healing.

Decreases inflammation, swelling, and stiffness
Accelerates tissue healing
Reduces post-surgery scar tissue
