Laser Therapy Treatment

Treatment Spine Laser Therapy Treatment


Depending on the condition being treated, laser therapy procedure lasts from 5 to 10 minutes. The laser is applied directly to the patient’s skin where the photons emitted by the laser reflect, scatter, and absorb into damaged tissue. This stimulates cellular metabolism to accelerate the healing process. It is effective in treating a variety of pain conditions, both acute and chronic.

Pain lasers operate in the 650-1300 nanometer spectrum, which means that they are able to penetrate deep tissue structures while still being a safe, non-invasive procedure to help reduce pain and inflammation. It has been cleared by the FDA and helps us offer our patients an alternative to drugs and/or surgery.

Most patients see results within 3-5 treatments. During treatment, patients will start to feel a soothing warmth, which signals the beginning of an 18-24 hour process of modulated cellular activity, leading to decrease in pain and inflammation.

Laser therapy has been used to treat a variety of injuries and body parts for decades with nearly no side effects. Each treatment takes around 10 minutes to complete and can be combined with other therapies. Acute conditions require more treatments and can even be done multiple days in a row but more chronic injuries can be spaced a few days apart. Many people experience symptom relief after the first treatment, but some may need 3 or 4 treatments to begin noticing a difference. Each treatment is cumulative, so even if pain relief isn’t immediate, the laser is still creating an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms and stiffness.
