Laser Therapy

What is Laser Therapy?

Laser therapy is a safe, pain-free treatment that only takes a few minutes per visit. Laser Therapy does not require the use of drugs or surgery, and there are no side effects or risks that may occur with other forms of treatment. In addition, it can often achieve results faster and better than other treatment modalities. Many conditions show signs of improvement in even the first or second treatments.

The primary mechanism of laser therapy is photobiomodulation which causes a stimulation of cells and tissue repair that is based on scientific research which has demonstrated positive physiological effects of infrared wavelengths on cellular organelles and electron chain molecules.

RESEARCH RESULTS FROM LASER THERAPY

  • Injuries treated with laser therapy heal faster
  • Laser Therapy has a strengthening effect on tissue repair
  • Laser Therapy improves blood flow & lymphatic drainage
  • It is an effective means of relief for many pain syndromes
  • It can improve immune response

HOW ARE TREATMENTS ADMINISTERED?

Treatments are performed by positioning the laser hand-piece approximately ½” directly above the skin and surrounding the area of injury and pain with the laser treatment beam.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?

The Class IV Laser Therapy produces results quickly. For most ACUTE conditions 5-6 treatment is all that is needed. CHRONIC conditions take longer and might require 6-12 treatments. While these 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 but is based on the size of area, depth of penetration needed and condition being treated.

WILL THE TREATMENT HURT?

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

WHEN CAN NORMAL ACTIVITY BEGIN AGAIN?

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

WILL INSURANCE COVER TREATMENTS?

Laser therapy may not be covered by insurance plans. If insurance does not cover the cost of treatments, there are affordable payment plans available. The cost of each treatment session is $70. For packages of 6, the price is $360 ($60 per session). For a package of 10, the price $500 ($50 per session).

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 respiratory chain
  • Increased DNA and RNA synthesis
  • Enhanced collagen synthesis

WHAT ADVANTAGE 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” TREATMENTS?

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