Class IV LASER therapy
The 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.

Marathon Physical Therapy is pleased to welcome the NEUBIE NeuFit System into our practice. This new technology is a completely different approach to healing. It focuses on the nervous system and helps patients heal from injury or pain. The conventional methods of physical therapy have been successful.
A handheld device uses low-energy acoustic waves to shockwave the skin using a conducting gel. The projectile is controlled by compressed oxygen and absorbs the energy. This energy causes the body to repair and regenerate the affected area.
