What is Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is the use of concentrated light energy  to help reduce pain and inflammation related to many common conditions.

Laser therapy uses a process called photobiomodulation. Photons enter the tissue and interact with the cytochrome c complex within mitochondria. This interaction triggers a biological cascade of events that leads to an increase in cellular metabolism and a decrease in both pain and inflammation. Unlike medications, laser therapy reduces pain without undesirable side effects.

Lasers that have larger power ranges offer versatile treatment options. A laser that can be set to operate from 0.5 W all the way up to 25 W, allows the clinician flexibility to treat low and slow or at maximum output.

Laser Pain Therapy

Laser pain therapy is low-intensity technique that uses low levels of light to stimulate healing. It is also known as “cold” laser therapy because the low levels of light aren’t enough to heat the body’s tissue. Laser Pain Therapy is an effective method to heal wounds and pain. The laser intensity level is comparatively low and can pass through the layers of skin and reaches the target area. The effected tissues then absorbs the light which leads to healing the damaged or injured tissue. Laser Pain Therapy promotes overall reduction in healing time by increasing intra-cellular metabolism.

How does Laser therapy work?

Laser therapy uses laser light, which is absorbed by living tissue and triggers biological reactions in the cells. Chemical substances are produced. released and carried by blood and lymphatic flow to other parts of the system. In this way the effects of laser therapy create broad systemic effects

Is Laser therapy safe?

The FDA has cleared laser therapy for the treatment of many pain syndromes. The investigation of a broad array of conditions has been completed and more are presently underway. The FDA considers laser therapy to be a safe and effective modality when used properly by a licensed practioner.

Has Laser Therapy been proven?

There are more than 3000 scientific research studies on laser therapy. These investigations verify the clinical value and effectiveness of laser therapy.

Why Laser therapy instead of Electrical Stimulsation or Ultra sound?

Alternative modalities may relieve pain but do nothing to promote deep healing of damaged tissue. It lacks the consistent pain reduction of laser and does not provide the same stimulation of tissue healing. Ultrasound is not as efficient at blocking pain and is not as effective with tissue regeneration

Is cold Laser therapy painful?

No. Low level lasers do not generate perceivable heat. Therefore, when the laser contacts the skin the patient experiences no warmth or burning as a result of the laser. Most people feel nothing at all, while a few may feel a slight tingling during the treatment. 

Is it safe over implants?

People with a pacemaker or other types of implants or prosthesis can still safely receive cold laser treatments. It may be necessary to adjust treatment times and dosage for patients with artificial joints since implanted metal can reflect laser light in a way that increases absorption. We suggest you contact your clinician and discuss dosage prior to treatment. 

How many treatments will I need?

A patient usually comes in for a treatment several times a week. The number of treatments can range anywhere from 2 to 20, depending on the nature and severity of the condition.

If you are suffering from chronic conditions that affect your daily life, shockwave therapy offers
effective, long-lasting results.

Acupuncture can ease chronic pain such as low-back pain, neck pain, and osteoarthritis/knee pain. It can also reduce the frequency and prevent migraine headaches.
