Deep Tissue Laser Therapy
Non-invasive treatment for pain and injury
Our procedure is non-invasive that uses a laser beam to reduce acute and chronic pain and treat connective tissue injuries.
This device is a high power deep tissue pain relieving laser. This laser is approved by the FDA and is performed on an outpatient basis. During the procedure, the patient feels a slight warming of the tissue. The procedure is performed in our office and requires no hospital stay.
Common Problems Treated in our clinic:
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Coccydynia (tailbone pain)
Ischemic Pain (including circulation problems)
Low Back Pain (including disc problems)
Myofascial Pain (muscle pain)
Neck Pain (including disc problems and whiplash injuries)
Neuropathy (nerve injury)
Orofacial Pain (including Temporomandibular Joint Disorders)
Peripheral Neuropathy (seen in diabetes)
Plantar Fasciitis (heel pain)
Radiating Pain (Arm and Leg)
Shoulder Pain (Frozen Shoulder, Rotator Cuff )
Tendonitis, Tennis and Golfer's Elbow
Upper Back Pain (Thoracic pain)
What is Deep Tissue Laser Therapy?
Laser Therapy is a non-invasive, safe, and effective treatment modality where light is used to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and promote wound healing and soft tissue repair Our laser is a deep tissue laser that can put an end to your pain fast!
Why Laser is Different?
Laser therapy is a medical breakthrough therapeutic device with unparalleled applications and treatment outcomes. The Laser works by converting light into biochemical energy, resulting in normal cell function, which causes symptoms (PAIN) to disappear.
The primary biological action of laser results from stimulation of cellular transport mechanisms in the mitochondria, cell membranes and epithelial tissues. This action causes the release of vasodilating chemicals, the stimulation of DNA and RNA (Building blocks) synthesis, an increase in enzyme production, an increase of superoxide dismutase activity, normalization of tissue pH, and increased ATP production.
The increase of vasodilatation (blood supply) and improved microcirculation will increase the supply of cellular nutrition promoting tissue repair and remodeling (which means you heal faster) with significant reduction in edema (swelling).
How is the treatment done?
The laser is placed in contact with the skin allowing the healing energy to penetrate tissue, where it interacts with various intracellular bio-molecules resulting in the restoration of normal cell function. This also enhances the body’s natural healing processes. In essence, light energy is converted into biochemical energy.
The result; normal cell functions are restored. The process results in a disappearance of symptoms and increases the speed at which your body heals.
Other Effects; the immune system response is stimulated, lymphatic drainage is improved, production of growth hormone is increased, & the body’s natural healing process are enhanced.
The beneficial physiological changes noted above are the result in tissue regeneration and cellular stimulation. You will notice that we focus on reduction and elimination of pain by using the one of the most powerful therapy lasers available to help our patients.
What does laser therapy have over other forms of therapy?
It does not require the use of drugs or surgery, there are less side effects or risks, and it is quick and convenient. Studies have shown that it is equal to or more effective than other forms of therapy. Pain relief is often immediate.
Does it hurt? What does the treatment feel like?
There is little or no sensation during treatment. Occasionally one feels mild, soothing warmth. There is no pain associated with the treatment. Laser treatment is relaxing and some people even fall asleep. On the other hand, it sometimes occurs that pain can increase or begin 6-24 hours after a treatment session. This is because the laser light starts the healing process. This type of pain is particularly likely to arise when the health problems are chronic or nerve related. It usually subsides after a few days.
How long does the treatment take?
Treatment plans are determined on an individual basis.
How many treatments does it take?
This depends on the nature of the condition being treated. For some acute conditions, 2 to 6 treatments may be sufficient. More chronic conditions may require 6-10 sessions.
How long before results are felt?
You may feel improvement in your condition (usually pain reduction) after the very first treatment. Each treatment is cumulative and results are often felt after 2 to 4 sessions. Treatments just take a few minutes, however the therapeutic effect continues to sooth and heal long after you leave our office.
Are the results long-lasting?
Therapeutic Laser Therapy is about healing. It's not about masking or covering up a condition.
Can it be used in conjunction with other forms of treatment?
Yes, laser therapy is even more effective when combined with other forms of therapy, including Naprapathic Medicine, soft tissue mobilization, electrotherapy and nutrition. We sometimes combine our laser therapy with specialized techniques to relieve your pain fast!
How do I know if laser therapy is right for me?
We will evaluate your condition and perform a complete history along with orthopedic and neurological assessments to determine if you are a candidate for this procedure.
Can laser therapy be used over medical implants or over metal?
Yes, laser therapy is a light treatment. No heating is involved with the surgical or metal implants. It can be used safely with no side effects. It is extremely effective for post-operative wound healing. Many hip and knee replacement patients see us for care.
Is it covered by medical insurance?
Some insurance covers the procedure. Most patients who decide to receive the benefits of laser therapy choose to seek this effective method of treatment on their own. Price is usually not a consideration when you have been suffering for so long.
How many treatments do I need?
The course of therapy in our facility is usually 6-10 visits. Pay as you is $30 per treatment or 6-prepay for $150.00 & 10-prepay for $200.00.
Are there any other risks with laser therapy?
The risks associated with laser therapy are minimal. Your eyes will be shielded during the treatments. The treatments are relatively pain-free.
