High Powered Laser (HPL)
Laser therapy improves blood circulation thereby drawing more water, oxygen & nutrients to the affected part of the body. This builds an aura of healing that minimizes inflammation, swelling, stiffness, pain, and muscle spasms. Ultimately, the affected part is completely restored, and pain is significantly reduced immediately.

In addition to this, it also helps in healing scar tissue and muscle damage beneath the surface which is impossible without the help of this non-invasive treatment.

It can almost immediately arrest soft tissue and joint pain. Its 3 wavelengths allow for optimal tissue absorption and it can achieve much greater penetration depth than its low-power (cold laser) counterparts.

- Osteoarthritis of the knee, hip and ankle
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Shoulder impingement syndromes
- Hip or shoulder bursitis
- Low back disc degeneration
