Effective Pain Relief without the dangerous side effects of drugs or the risks of surgery!

Welcome to Pain Free Michigan, Inc. located in Traverse City, Michigan. We are a non-medical pain relief center using the only High Power, Deep Tissue, Therapy Laser in Northern Michigan. Our therapy can safely and effectively eliminate your pain and inflammation caused by numerous acute and chronic issues. Our Unique, High Power Laser Therapy (HPLT) is perfect for naturally eliminating pain and inflammation caused by low back pain, neuropathy, tennis elbow, frozen shoulder, knee pain, muscle aches/strains, ligament sprains, arthritis, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel, sciatic pain, arthritis and more.

Our relaxing, non-invasive therapy is truly pain free! Unlike Surgery or Injections and traditional medical treatments, our Therapy is painless and many clients report feeling invigorated after their 10 to 20 minute visit. High Power Laser Therapy works using the principles of photochemical reaction and photothermal reaction, delivering photons from the laser which stimulate the enzyme cytochrome c oxidase on the mitochondrial membrane in your cells.. This action begins a healing cascade of numerous cellular functions, including the production of adenosine triphosphate, boosting DNA and RNA production, suppressing pain receptors, stimulating nerve regeneration, muscle relaxation and immune system response, activating the lymphatic system, activating stem cells, reducing fibrous tissue formation and releasing endorphins. Professional athletes receive HPLT to heal fractures faster, quickly heal ankle sprains and to recover from surgery quicker and stronger. Our High Power Laser Therapy has been statistically shown to be a safe and effective therapy for pain and inflammation in hundreds of  studies published in reputable journals worldwide. Pain Free Michigan now makes this exciting and effective therapy available to all! We are the only High Power, Deep Tissue Laser Therapy Center in Northern Michigan. Please don’t be fooled by centers offering high power laser or marketing Class IV laser therapy, these centers typically use a laser that can only deliver up to 25 Watts split between 4 Laser beams, for an effective dose of 6.25 Watts per wavelength.  If the center is offering Low Level Laser or LLLT, these lasers operate at wattages up to 500mW or the power of a Christmas tree lightbulb. To deliver the same dose as our laser, you would need to receive 13 hours of continuous therapy. These lasers also do not create any therapeutic heat, which is proven to enhance the pain relief capabilities of our High Power, Deep Tissue Laser Therapy. All lasers are not created equal and successful laser therapy is proven to be dose dependent. Only Lasers 30 Watts and above can deliver enough dose while generating therapeutic heat to enhance outcomes.

I received laser  therapy for carpal tunnel pain and for shoulder pain following surgery. After a few treatments, my incisions have flattened out and the pain is much more reasonable.  Without a doubt, it has given me drug-free relief of both acute and chronic pain.  I also have freer movement of my hand, fingers and shoulder.


Karin W.

Prior to PFM treatments, I had pain, swelling and difficulty performing everyday tasks two years after having knee replacement surgery. .After treatments, my pain ranges from slight to none and my range of motion has improved. The outcome has been AMAZING!!!


Kim H.

I’ve had back surgery, been to physical therapy…and been living on pain medications…nothing helped to alleviate the chronic pain. My Dad suggested High Power Laser Therapy so I went for one treatment and had about 50% relief within a day. I decided to go back for a second treatment and I am now 95% pain free.
