Curing your pain…altering your life.
The use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to create therapeutic effects is known as Laser Therapy, or “photobiomodulation.” The purpose of Laser Therapy is to increase healing time, reduce pain, and increase circulation as well as decrease swelling. As far back as the 1970’s Laser Therapy has been widely utilized in Europe by physical therapists, nurses and doctors. After FDA clearance in 2002, Laser Therapy is now being used extensively in the United States.
Patient Gains of Laser Therapy
Laser Therapy is proven to biostimulate tissue repair and growth. The Laser decreases inflammation, pain, and scar tissue formation. In controlling chronic pain Class IV, Laser Therapy can present startling results, is non-addictive and practically free of side effects.
Has Success Ever Been Proven Scientifically?
Yes. There are countless of circulated studies showing the clinical success of Laser Therapy. Amid these, there are over one hundred meticulously maintained, scientific studies that report the success of laser for several clinical circumstances.
Cellular Effects of Laser Therapy
Improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane, during Laser Therapy the infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level and metabolic activity increases within the cell. This triggers the construction of cellular energy (ATP) that leads to a outpouring of favorable effects, increasing cellular behavior and health.
Laser Therapeutic Effects
Laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area during each painless treatment. This establishes an optimal healing environment that decreases inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain. Function is restored and pain is relieved as the injured area returns to normal.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does it hurt? What will it feel like? There is hardly any sensation during treatment. Sometimes an individual feels slight, relaxing warmth or tingling. Areas of pain or inflammation may be sensitive shortly before pain reduction.
Are there any side effects or correlated risks? For over twenty years of use by healthcare providers around the world, very few side effects have ever been recorded. Sometimes some previous injuries or pain syndromes might feel aggravated for a few days, as the healing response is more active after treatment.
How long does each treatment take? Most treatments are 3 to 9 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.
How often should a patient be treated? Acute circumstances can be treated daily, especially if they are followed by significant pain. More chronic problems respond more favorably when treatments are received 2 to 3 times a week, lessening to once a week or once every other week, with improvement.
How many treatments does it take? This depends on the type of the situation being treated. For some acute situations 1 to 6 treatments may be satisfactory. Those which are more chronic might require 10 to 15 (or more) treatments. Situations such as extreme arthritis might require continued periodic care to control pain.
How long before the results are felt? After your very first treatment, you might feel improvement (usually pain reduction). Occasionally you will not feel improvement for some treatments. This does not mean that nothing is occurring. Every treatment is aggregate and results are often felt after 3 or 4 sessions.
Can it be used in conjunction with other forms of treatment? Yes! Laser Therapy is often used with other forms of therapy, including physical therapy, chiropractic adjustments, massage, soft tissue mobilization, electrotherapy and even following surgery. Other healing procedures are complementary and can be used with laser to raise the level of effectiveness of the treatment.
