You will generally feel a bit of warmth from the laser diodes, and occasionally

a patient might feel more pain after the first or second treatment, because the

tissue is reversing back to an acute stage, rather than chronic, which is the body's

way to start the healing process all over again.

 

 

Laser is extremely safe.  Laser can also be beneficial in treating diabetic conditions,

such as diabetic neuropathy, diabetic arthropathy(joint disorders), diabetic ulcers

and various other diabetic related conditions.

 

If you are pregnant you can still receive laser on an extremity joint (elbow, knee,

ankle, wrist, shoulder) and neck, but it is advisable to avoid laser over the lower

back and abdomen.

 

You can still receive laser while taking medication.  In fact, you will probably be

able to take fewer anti-inflammatories and pain killers once you start your

laser treatments.  Laser will not interfere with your prescription drugs.

 

The average number of treatments is approximately 9.

The cost per session is $45 for 30 minutes. If you have supplemental insurance,

your office visit with our clinic may  be covered by your insurance carrier. 

If you have been injured in an auto accident or a work related injury, your

treatment with our clinic will be covered 100%.

 

A session typically lasts 30 minutes, but can vary from 20 to 60 minutes,

depending on the area being treated, the condition, age of the patient and

type of lasers used.

 

Laser is used by professional athletes all over the world, including players

from the NBA, NFL and NHL.  However, laser is not just for pro athletes.

Seniors with osteoarthritis, amateur athletes with any type of sports

injury, young adults, children and middle aged individuals.  In other

words anyone can benefit from low level laser therapy.

 

Laser is perfectly safe.  Safety goggles must be worn during the

application of the laser probe, in order to protect the eyes.  In over 2500

clinical studies on the efficacy of laser therapy, no harmful side effects

have been reported.

 

It is safe to use laser over body prosthesis, such as knee and hip

replacements.  Laser can safely be used on most body parts for

patients with a pacemaker, however, not directly over the chest wall.
