Laser pain reduction procedures are used to treat a variety of painful conditions, from degenerative joint diseases to nerve pain. During the procedure, a laser is used to emit a beam of light that penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the affected area. This heat energy then penetrates the tissue, reducing inflammation, pain and swelling. The procedure is relatively quick and painless and can be used to treat a variety of conditions. Patients often experience immediate relief from pain and discomfort and may notice longer-term benefits as the healing process continues.
