What is Laser or Light Therapy?

Low-level laser and LED therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near infrared) to create therapeutic effects. These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling. Multiple physiological responses are initiated and normal cell function is restored.

Research Demonstrates:

  • Injuries treated with laser therapy heal faster
  • Laser therapy improves blood flow & lymphatic drainage
  • It is an effective means of relief for many pain syndromes
  • It can improve immune response

How many treatments does it take?

This depends on the nature of the condition being treated. For some acute conditions, 1-6 treatments may be sufficient. Those of a more chronic nature may require 10 to 15 (or more) treatments.

How long before the results are felt?

You may feel improvement in your condition (usually pain reduction) after the very first treatment. Sometimes you will not feel improvement for a number of treatments. This does not mean that nothing is happening. Each treatment is cumulative and results are often not felt until after 3 or 4 sessions.

Can it be used in conjunction with other forms of treatments?

Yes. Laser Therapy is often used with other forms of therapy including physical therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic adjustments, massage, soft tissue mobilization, electrotherapy and following surgery. Other healing modalities are complimentary and can be used with lasers to increase the effectiveness of the treatment.

Does it hurt? What does treatment feel like?

There is little or no sensation during treatment. Occasionally one feels a mild, soothing warmth or tingling.

Are there any side effects or associated risks?

During more than 20 years of use by healthcare providers all over the world, very few side effects have ever been reported. If a patient is allergic to light, he or she may get a rash or blister for a few days. Occasionally some old injuries or pain syndromes may feel aggravated for a few days, as the healing reponse is more active after treatment.

How long does each treatment take?

The typical treatment duration lasts 5-15 minutes.
