Shine's physical therapists now offer cold or low-intensity laser. This is currently a modality that can be added to your physical therapy treatment to assist your body's healing ability. Low-intensity laser is a safe and effective modality that is applied directly to the injured area(s) as well as other key points along the spine. The session can take as little as 8 minutes and is as simple as applying the laser to your skin; no gels, electrodes, or other set-up is required. Low-intensity laser optimizes the function of your cells, can reduce pain, diminish inflammation, and improves oxygenation in your bloodstream. It can assist clients with headaches, head injury, fasciitis, bursitis, strains, sprains, tendonitis, chronic nerve pain, gastro-intestinal distress, and many other conditions.
