What is Laser Therapy?
Class IV K-Lasers painlessly deliver specific red and near-infrared wavelengths of laser light to induce a therapeutic effect within the body. These include increased circulation, decreased swelling, reduction of pain and enhanced tissue repair. Laser therapy had been used in Europe since the 1970’s and was cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration in 2002.
Benefits of Laser Therapy
Laser Therapy is proven to bio-stimulate tissue repair and growth. The K-Laser accelerates the healing process by decreasing inflammation, pain and scar tissue formation. In the management of chronic and acute pain, Class IV K-Laser Therapy can provide dramatic results by increasing circulation by drawing oxygen and nutrients to the affected area. This creates an optimal healing environment reducing inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, stiffness and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, pain is relieved and function is restored.
Numerous Studies show that Laser Therapy can help with:
- Acute Injuries
- Auto & Work Related Injuries
- Back pain
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Diabetic Neuropathy
- Edema and Lymphatic Congestion
- Herpes Zoster (Shingles)
- Ligament Sprains
- Muscle Strains
- Myofascial Trigger Points
- Muscle Strains
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Repetitive Stress Injuries
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Shoulder, Back & Knee Pain
- Sports Injuries
- Tennis Elbow
- Trigeminal Neuralgia
- Ulcers – Diabetic and Venous
How Many Treatments Does It Take?
While most patients notice benefits after 1-2 sessions, we recommend a series of at least 6 sessions for chronic conditions. Longstanding chronic conditions may require 10 to 15 sessions. Conditions such as severe arthritis and neuropathy may require ongoing periodic maintenance laser therapy to control pain. For acute injuries, patients report greatly accelerated healing, and we recommend 2-5 treatments weekly until the injury is fully resolved.
When Will I Notice Results?
Many patients feel improvement in their condition, usually pain relief and decreased swelling, immediately or within hours after the very first session. Some patients do not feel improvement until they have completed 3-4 sessions, because the physiologic effects of each treatment are cumulative. Beyond relieving symptoms, laser therapy promotes healing at a cellular level, and patients often experience lasting results that continue to improve with each session.

I loved the laser therapy treatment. I have been very concerned lately that I would have to have surgery, but this new therapy leads me to believe I may not ever have to get the surgery. I got the treatment for the first time yesterday, and today I have been able to do more than I have in years. I believe this has changed my life. Thank you so much!!! -
