High-Dose Laser

What is high dose laser therapy?

At Glen Rock Spine & Rehab, high-dose laser therapy is one of the most effective and powerful techniques to boost your body’s healing activities, alleviating pain and discomfort. The high-dose laser penetrates deep within your tissues to target the root cause of your chronic pain, providing lasting relief. We use cutting-edge Diowave lasers to rapidly reduce pain without harsh side effects, surgeries, or narcotics.

High-dose laser therapy is a pain management technique wherein cutting-edge lasers are used to emit energies greater than 0.5 Watts. High-dose laser energy penetrates deeper into the skin, where it encourages cellular regeneration, boosts the body’s anti-inflammatory and healing properties, and repairs the damaged tissues, thereby alleviating chronic pain.
