Knee pain is the third most common pain reported to health practitioners, behind low back pain and headaches. Osteoarthritis of the knee is the most common type of arthritis, the major cause of pain and disability in the elderly. No matter what your age, if you have issues with your knees it’s worth giving them some attention.
In 2012 therapeutic laser was clinically proven as successful in the treatment of chronic pain, providing a welcome alternative to pharmaceutical anti-inflammatories, and painkillers that offer temporary relief at best.

Ligaments, tendons and damaged cartilage are regenerated, accelerating healing and safeguarding against the future.
