Laser therapy + mire treatment
We use unique laser therapy that is not standard at most physical therapy practices. This laser therapy is FDA approved and non-invasive. Especially important – patients often experience significant relief, and quickly!

Laser therapy uses light emitting diodes at certain frequencies that causes increased circulation and blood-flow that helps alleviate the numbness and tingling. Laser therapy also release what’s called, Nitric Oxide, which acts as a traffic director to the cells that are used to heal and repair. This makes the healing happen at a faster rate.  Read more about Laser therapy here.
