What is Laser Therapy in Johns Creek?
Pain Relieving LASER Therapy is also known as photobiomodulation. It entails the use of specific wavelengths of light to generate a photochemical response to help repair damaged or dysfunctional tissue.
How does Laser Therapy work in Johns Creek?
The pain relieving LASER works by creating an increase of blood supply, bringing in oxygen to the cells. It stimulates the lymphatic system, pulling swelling and inflammation from the area. The body’s basic unit of energy, ATP (Adenosine triphosphate), production is stimulated in the cells helping them have the energy to function normally. The pain reflex is broken, offering immediate relief of pain.
LASER therapy can alleviate pain, reduce inflammation and accelerate recovery from a wide range of acute and chronic clinical conditions. Significant reduction in swelling has been noted as well as tissues are better able to move fluids out through lymphatic drainage pathways.
Cleared by the FDA in 2003, Class IV LASER therapy has become standard of care for many musculoskeletal injuries. Class IV LASERs can penetrate over 4 inches into the deep musculoskeletal tissue. The number of treatments required depends on the nature of the problem and the length of time the patient has been affected by it. Some conditions may be resolved with as few as one treatment. However, chronic and/or deep-seated conditions may take as many as 10 treatments.
Pain relieving LASER therapy technology has been recently endorsed by professional organizations such as the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), World Health Organization (WHO) and International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP). There are no known side effects from LASER therapy and the results are long lasting.

“Johns Creek Physical Therapy helped me overcome a nerve injury on my hip with their laser treatment, it shortened my healing time in half.
Then I recommended my 82 year old mother to them after she experienced a fall. They helped her get back her balance!
Mom worked with David, she felt he was very professional, knowledgeable and that she gained her balance back with him.
Holly at the front desk always has a warm welcome waiting for you!
Marc, David and Beth, thank you so much!”
