What is Laser Therapy?
Laser Therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to stimulate the body's natural ability to heal. The effects of laser energy include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling.
Is Laser Therapy Safe?
With over 20 years of use, laser therapy has continued to advance and has very few side effects. In some cases, symptoms may feel aggravated after Laser treatment, which is a good indication that the healing process has been stimulated.
This treatment is also painless, with most patients reporting mild warmth or tingling. Some contraindicating medical conditions may require further evaluation, which will be discussed during your consultation.
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Therapy?
During your initial visit with our health care team, your individual condition and concerns will be evaluated through a medical examination and diagnostic testing. Based on those results, we will help you determine the best course of treatment for you.
How Many Laser Therapy Sessions Will I Need?
While many patients feel improvement after the first session, it may take multiple appointments in order to effectively treat your individual condition. Our health care team and professional chiropractor will help you determine the best course of treatment for you in order to eliminate your pain and add quality to your life.
Science & Research
During Laser Therapy, infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level increasing metabolic activity within the cell. By improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane, the increased production of cellular energy (ATP) is stimulated. The cascade of beneficial effects that follows includes increased cellular function and tissue repair.
Laser Therapeutic Effects
During each painless treatment, laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area.
This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.
Laser USA continually advances therapeutic laser science and technology, offering three laser models for use by licensed practitioners.
Our lasers are designed to target the body's optimal light absorbing complexes to treat pain and accelerate the healing process. By combining several wavelengths, and various modes of delivery all models are effective in treating pain, decreasing inflammation, and increasing circulation.

"I was in an ATV accident six years ago and I completely crushed my hand and I’ve had 11 surgeries. [...] I couldn’t close my hand, I couldn’t bend my fingers and everything was very stuck. And…now I can close my hand and make a fist…so, [it’s] pretty miraculous. […] A goal of mine has always been to compete in the cross fit games but, I couldn’t grip the pull up bar. I would fall right off because my hand wouldn’t close. And now, I can close my hand and accomplish that, I hope."
"Two weeks ago I went for my first treatment. My doctor was very knowledgeable about the new equipment and after reading the fear in my eyes, he was very reassuring that the laser was not in any way painful. (...) Within hours I had regained at least 60% mobility with no pain. Five days later I returned for the second treatment and was amazed that within two hours of the treatment I had regained 100% mobility without pain."
