Watch It in Action:
How does it work?
The 830Laser sends light (photons) into your injured tissues and can penetrate 2 inches without being absorbed by the skin, fat, or blood. No heat is generated so it is safe for use anywhere* on the body. Once the photons find the injured tissues, they stimulate and energize the cells to repair and strengthen at a remarkably fast rate. This treatment does NOT wear off like most medicines, electrical stimulation, heat or ice. It increases our body’s own healing power and enhances that process – true healing. If you don’t re-injure the area, the pain should not return. It successfully treats most muscle, joint, tendon, and nerve pain associated with Arthritis, Back Pain, Bursitis/Tendonitis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Heel Spur/Plantar Fascitis, Migraines, Osteoarthritis, TMJ, and more. It’s even safe on children!
