Low-level laser therapy applies red and near infrared light over injuries to improve soft tissue healing and relieve pain. Non-thermal light transmitted in this way supplies vital oxygen and energy to every cell in your body. This type of therapy is a safe and effective treatment to improve soft tissue healing and relieve pain without injuring or damaging your body’s cells.

How Does Laser Therapy Work?
The non-thermal laser we use at Falls Healing Arts is capable of penetrating deep into your tissue. Light energy promotes photobiostimulation which is a chain of chemical reactions triggered by light. These chemical reactions speeds up cell repair and stimulates your immune, lymphatic and vascular systems leading to a reduction in pain, inflammation, edema and an overall reduction in healing time.
Is Laser Therapy New?
No, laser therapy is not new. This type of therapy has been used for decades. In fact, Albert Einstein developed the therapeutic laser. The word “Laser” is an acronym for Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Light waves penetrate deep in the skin, which optimizes the immune responses of our blood which leads to anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive effects.
