Cold Laser Therapy
Step Ahead PT now offers a Revolutionary Treatment to alleviate Pain! It is safe, non-invasive, Drug Free and FDA approved to manage pain. The ML830 Laser has proven to be effective as a successful treatment for a variety of aches/pain, injuries, wounds, fractures and neurological conditions. As experts in pain relief, we recommend our non-invasive breakthrough technology. Our laser therapy is versatile, convenient and effective while producing safe, significant results. LLLT (low level laser therapy) is a class IIIB medical device that is non-thermal and capable of penetrating deep into tissue (approx. 5 cm) for proper healing effects. Once delivered, the light energy promotes the process of photobiostimulation. In human tissue the resulting photochemical reaction produces an increase in the cellular metabolism rate with improved blood circulation and vasodilation. The net result, observed in clinical trials is the reduction in pain, inflammation, edema and accelerated healing time.
Following a laser therapy session, approximately 75-80% of patients can notice an immediate improvement in their condition. The more chronic and severe the condition, the longer it takes to respond. The majority of conditions will take 6-12 treatments to be effective. This treatment is now being offered in our Marblehead and Lynn locations.
