What is laser therapy?

Deep tissue laser therapy is clinically proven to be an effective treatment for pain and inflammation by stimulating cellular activity.

The laser targets areas of pain to increase blood circulation, decrease areas of inflammation, and speed up the healing process.


How does it work?

Our Class IV deep tissue laser works by flooding the tissues with photons (particles that transmit light), energizing the damaged cells and increasing circulation in the painful areas. This produces a cascade of healing responses in your body, reducing inflammation, and thereby reducing - or even eliminating - pain.

Treatments take just a few minutes, and the therapeutic effect continues to soothe and heal long after you leave the clinic.


Would deep tissue laser therapy be beneficial to me?

Laser therapy relieves pain and inflammation associated with:

  • Strains and sprains
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Postsurgical rehabilitation
  • Sports injuries
  • Tendonitis and tendonosis
  • Shoulder and knee injuries
  • Hand and wrist injuries
  • Foot and ankle conditions

Laser therapy is not limited to just the conditions above. If you suffer from an injury or condition not listed, please reach out to us to see if you could benefit from our deep tissue laser.


How are treatments administered?

Treatments are performed by positioning the laser hand-piece approximately 1/2" directly above the skin, and surrounding the area of injury and pain with the laser beam.

How many treatments are needed?

The Class IV Laser Therapy producs results quickly. For most acute conditions, 5-6 treatmens is all that is needed. Chronic conditions take longer, and might require 6-12 treatments. While there are the averages, each person is unique and healing time varies by person and condition. For those with lifelong conditions, your doctor may recommend 1 or 2 follow-up treatments each month.

How long will the treatment take?

Depending on the condition, treatment times for this drug-free, non-invasive procedure will last on average 5-10 minutes. However, time depends on the size of the area, depth of penetration needed, and the condition being treated.

Will the treatment hurt?

Most patients notice a warm, often soothing, feeling, but there is no pain associated with treatment. Many patients also experienced reduced muscle tension and tightness, reduced inflammation, and improved range of motion.

When can I begin normal activity again?

The moment a person leaves the clinic, they may resume normal daily activity. It is important to remember not to overexert for a few days, as the body is still healing.

Will insurance cover treatments?

Laser therapy may not be covered by insurance plans. Please contact our office to clarify if your insurance plan will pay for laser therapy. If insurance does not cover the cost of treatments, there are affordable payment plans available.

How does Class IV laser therapy work?

When the photons of laser light penetrate the skin and underlying tissue, they are absorbed by the cells, and converted into energy. The cell membrane permeability is altered, which triggers a cascade of cellular events, including:

  • Stimulation of ATP
  • Stimulation of respiratoy chain
  • Increased DNA and RNA synthesis
  • Increased levels of beta endorphins and serotonin
  • Enhanced collagen synthesis

What advantages does Class IV laser therapy have over other forms of treatment?

The treatment does not require the use of drugs or surgery, and there are no dangerous side effects or risks. In addition, laser therapy provides enhanced treatment outcomes faster than any other treatment modality.

How is Class IV better than "Cold Laser Therapy"?

Cold Laser Therapy (or Low Light Laser Therapy - LLLT) was introduced into the USA in 2001 with low power levels. Since that time, new scientific and clinical discoveries have led to the development of the higher power lasers, including the new Class IV Laser Therapy
