How do lasers work?

Laser therapy uses light to help the body speed up the natural healing process. The laser beam (light) is directed over the skin and certain body areas to allow the energy of the light to penetrate into the tissue.  This causes an interaction with certain molecules which cause a different biological effect.  The laser then helps to accelerate healing, decrease pain and inflammation, to get you back to activities sooner.
