Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy is non-invasive, surgery-free, and drug-free! It is used to treat a variety of conditions and can be performed along with existing treatments. It employs a deep-penetrating light to promote a chain of chemical reactions known as photobiostimulation. This process helps relieve pain though the release of endorphins and stimulates injured cells to heal at an accelerated pace.
Cold laser therapy can be used to treat a multitude of ailments, including:
- Muscle, ligament, and tendon injuries
- Post-surgical cruciate (knee) repair
- Back pain
- Hip dysplasia Degenerative disc disease
Targeted exercises to improve balance, coordination, mobility, and muscle tone.
- Soft tissue massage
- Joint- and muscle-range-of-motion exercises
- Various exercises utilizing obstacles and equipment such as cavalettis, cones, exercise balls, stability platforms, etc.
