Ultrasound can be used for pain control, muscular spasm, increasing circulation, and increasing the speed of healing.
LASER therapy uses light energy to achieve therapeutic goals. Light particles are absorbed by the body’s tissues and stimulate biological healing processes. Benefits of LASER therapy include pain control and increased speed of healing.
