Helping You Feel Your Best
If you struggle with chronic pain, you know its debilitating effects. You've likely given up hobbies, family activities, and travel in your efforts to control pain and maintain functionality.
Laser therapy has been found to penetrate tissue and initiate healing on a cellular level, even allowing some patients to return to normal, everyday activities with little to no pain.
Laser Therapy, targets damaged tissue with specific wavelengths of light that have been found to interact with tissue and accelerate the healing process.
Much like photosynthesis in plants, light energy passes through the skin, and into the cell membrane, initiating a process called photobiostimulation. This process enhances the body's natural regenerative functions, as well as stimulating the release of endorphins. It may eventually even normalize damaged or injured tissue.
The result? Accelerated wound healing, as well as reduced pain, stiffness, swelling, and spasms. As the injured area returns to normal, the function is restored, so patients may take their life back and resume their favorite hobbies and activities.
Laser therapy can stimulate all cell types, including soft tissue, ligaments, cartilage, and nerves. Some conditions that have been shown to respond well to laser therapy include:
- Peripheral Neuropathy, Fibromyalgia
- Back and Neck Pain
- Sciatic Pain
- Arthritis pain, Degenerative Discs/Joints
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Knee Problems
- Tendinitis, Trigger Fingers
- Bunion Pains, Plantar Fasciitis
- Sprains and/or Strains
- Bruises, Contusions, Burns
- Headaches, TMJ, Sinus Trouble
- Athletic Injuries
- Work-Related and Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries

Q. DO I NEED A DOCTORS REFERRAL FOR LASER THERAPY?
Doctor referrals are not required to access most of our treatments, however, some of the insurance plans may require a referral.
Q. WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE TO GET A TREATMENT?
Most patients describe it as a very soothing, warm sensation. They generally experience no side effects or recovery period.
Q. HOW WILL I FEEL AFTER THE TREATMENT?
You may feel pain relief after just the first treatment. For other patients, it takes a while longer. Most patients report feeling very relaxed, or even tired. If you feel a lot less pain, keep in mind that pain reduction is just one goal. The laser is giving your body's cells more energy, so they repair and regenerate new tissues. The effect of laser therapy treatments is cumulative. You will be getting more benefit with successive treatments.
Q. DO I NEED TO TAKE SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS AFTER MY LASER TREATMENT?
For the most part, no. Obviously, you do not want to overexert and reinjure yourself. You may need to make changes to your workstation. If you are planning to work out, you may want to reduce the intensity or change the nature of your exercise. Discuss this with your practitioner.
Q. HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
The number of laser treatments will depend on the nature and duration of your condition, and other factors.
