How Does It Work?

Aspen Laser Therapy (also known as photobiomodulation therapy or “PBMT”) produces photochemical responses at the cellular level, which increase circulation and cellular energy production while decreasing inflammation and oxidative stress. PBMT also boosts the rate and quality of tissue repair, increases muscle performance, enhances recovery and relieves pain.

What to Expect

Each laser session starts with a recap of current symptoms and any changes to your complaints. Safety googles are provided at each session. We ask patients to bring appropriate wear so that treatment areas are easily accessible. Treatment can involve several related areas to the complaint. Each area is marked with a washable surgical pen for accuracy of treatment coverage. Patients often witness a reduction in injured area as their symptoms improve. Treatment is done initial two days in a row followed by every other day until treatment completed.
