Stop your Pain and Start your Healing!
Eliminate Pain with Laser Therapy!
What is Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy is an FDA cleared modality that reduces inflammation and ultimately results in pain reduction. Laser Therapy is effective in treating various painful conditions, chronic pain syndrome, and post-operative pain.
How does Laser Therapy work?
Deep Tissue Laser Therapy introduces light energy into damaged cells which stimulates inter-cellular activity. This reduces pain in the area and speeds recovery of the damaged cells. Once the cells recover, the healing process is complete.
What can I expect during a treatment?
Laser therapy treatment is safe, painless, and fast. Deep Tissue Laser Therapy treatments are administered in 20 or 45 minutes. You will be lying down or sitting in a relaxed position while laser light is applied into your area of pain. One of the main lasers that we use for Deep Tissue Laser Therapy is a Class IV Laser. This laser is one of the strongest on the market and actually warms the area being treated. It is a very relaxing experience and can often put our patients to sleep.
What can I expect after a treatment?
Most people experience positive results within a few treatments. Swelling is greatly reduced with each treatment, and there is often a gradual relief of pain.
How long is the treatment plan?
With pain due to an injury, the patient will typically see results after 3 to 5 treatment sessions. A custom treatment protocol will be determined for chronic painful conditions and can be from 15 to more than 25 treatments for severe painful syndromes. Laser therapy treatments initiate a healing process that continues to actively reduce inflammation for up 24 hours after treatment. However in some patients the pain can temporarily increase for 24 to 48 hours. Everyone has an individual healing response.
What are the benefits of Laser Therapy?
Deep Tissue Laser Therapy accelerates your body’s own natural healing process through photobiomodulation. Here are the clinical benefits:
- Effective for difficult conditions
- Alternative to surgery
- Fast treatment times
- Easy, non-invasive treatment
- Scientifically proven treatment
What is the effectiveness of laser therapy?
For years, physicians have been using laser therapy on patients who are seeking non-invasive, effective, alternative methods for pain relief. There have been over 4,000 clinical studies done on laser therapy since 1967. Many of these studies were scientific studies that were placebo-controlled and double-blinded studies. These studies have demonstrated laser therapy to be a proven method for pain relief.
