What is Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy is a medical treatment that uses focused light to stimulate a process called photobiomodulation, or PBM. During PBM, photons enter the tissue and interact with the cytochrome c complex within mitochondria. This interaction triggers a biological cascade of events that leads to an increase in cellular metabolism, decrease in pain, reduction in muscle spasm, and improved microcirculation to injured tissue. This treatment is FDA cleared and provides patients a non-invasive, non-pharmacological alternative for pain relief.
How Does Laser Therapy Work?
Laser therapy works by stimulating a process called photobiomodulation (PBM) in which photons enter the tissue and interact with the Cytochrome C complex within mitochondria. To receive the best therapeutic outcomes from laser therapy, a sufficient amount of light must reach the target tissue.
Laser therapy is used to treat acute and chronic conditions as well as post-activity recovery. It is also used as another option to prescription drugs, a tool to prolong the need for some surgeries, as well as pre and post surgery treatment to help control pain and swelling.
Laser therapy has been shown to be effective to help treat acute conditions. Bringing pain under control quickly helps the healing process and usually helps promote better outcomes.
With chronic conditions, research has shown that therapy lasers can be used to help combat persistent pain and promote circulation to damaged tissues. It can be a powerful, non-pharmaceutical solution to help reduce pain without the side effects of medication.
LightForce® Therapy Lasers can be found on the sidelines of many pro, college, and Olympic sports teams across the United States and many parts of Europe and Asia. Laser therapy has been shown to be effective at improving post-activity recovery times and reducing delayed onset muscle soreness.

What Our Clients Say
The laser treatments also helped my neck immensely and I recommend them as well!
This was my first time doing physical therapy ever. I hurt my neck on Dec.31 and put it off for weeks. When I finally made the appointment, I had my doubts that it would help but boy, I was wrong! After meeting Dr. Jill and having a great care team established, my neck kept getting better and better! Each clinician has their own style and strengths and they all complement each other to make the perfect team! The front desk staff is fantastic! The laser treatments also helped my neck immensely and I recommend them as well! I can’t recommend Professional PT enough thank you.
Laser was also a BIG part in lessening my pain.
I came here in a lot of pain and in a few weeks was already feeling a lot better. I was glad I signed up for laser therapy. That was also a BIG part in lessening my pain. All my exercises felt like they were doing what they were supposed to.
