This FDA approved, deep-penetrating light allows relief of pain through the release of endorphins and stimulates the injured cells to heal at a faster rate. Multiple studies and decades of use have proven that laser therapy can help to relieve pain, reduce swelling and inflammation, increase range of motion, and ease the healing process in many types of acute and chronic injuries and ailments. It can be used immediately on acute injuries, over broken skin and over metal implants, which makes it a wonderful post-operative therapy.
