Class IV Therapeutic Laser
Is the laser treatment painful?
Not at all! You will either be laying down or sitting, depending on where you are experiencing pain. The technician will massage the class IV infrared laser in small circles around the area for 5-10 minutes. Patients often fall asleep during the treatment because all you feel is a slight warmth around the area of concern.
What is the science behind the laser treatment?
The Laser Therapy photons help the cell’s ability to take in oxygen (and other respiratory enzymes) while draining toxins. These laser photons stimulate the production of Adenosine TriPhosphate (ATP) by reacting with the mitochondria of the cells. ATP provides the fuel for RNA and DNA synthesis, which repairs cells. So basically, we are turning light energy into healing energy!
How effective is laser treatment?
It is very effective if you finish out enough treatments. Although most patients report feeling better after the first session, we recommend doing 2-10 sessions so the pain does not return. The doctor will usually let you know how many you would need depending on your condition.
What conditions can the laser treat?
Arthritis, neck pain, low back pain, hip pain, hand and foot pain, shoulder pain, tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, skin conditions, migraines, inflammatory conditions, and the list goes on! It even works on fractures, cuts and scars.
Is the laser treatment covered by insurance?
Unfortunately, no. If you have been suffering in pain, please do not put yourself through that anymore. The laser treatment is a cost-effective therapy because the results are long-lasting. It is actually healing the condition rather than covering up or masking the symptoms.
