Revitalize with FDA-Approved Laser Therapy: Your Comprehensive Guide

Our laser therapy, backed by FDA approval, stands as a safe and side-effect-free solution to reduce pain, inflammation, and accelerate recovery from injuries and surgeries. This FAQ guide provides insights into laser therapy, its workings, what to expect during and after treatment, commonly treated conditions, applications, treatment duration, costs, and the option for standalone laser treatments.

What is Laser Therapy?

Laser therapy employs specific light wavelengths to address painful and debilitating conditions, offering a non-invasive and effective approach.

How Does it Work?

Light energy penetrates damaged cells, stimulating inter-cellular activity. This reduces pain and hastens cell recovery, completing the process once the cells regain vitality. Here's an overview of how cold laser therapy works:

1. Light Absorption:

Cold lasers emit low-level light, typically in the red to near-infrared spectrum. When this light comes into contact with the skin, it is absorbed by the cells in the targeted area.

2. Cellular Response:

The absorbed light energy initiates a photochemical reaction within the cells, primarily in the mitochondria—the powerhouse of the cell. This process, known as photobiomodulation, triggers various cellular responses.

3. Increased ATP Production:

One of the key outcomes of photobiomodulation is the stimulation of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production. ATP is a molecule that stores and transports energy within cells. The increase in ATP provides cells with additional energy to perform their functions more efficiently.

4. Enhanced Cellular Function:

The heightened energy levels influence cellular activities, leading to improved cell metabolism, proliferation, and repair. This is particularly beneficial in tissues with compromised function or those undergoing the healing process.

5. Reduced Inflammation:

Cold laser therapy has anti-inflammatory effects. It can help modulate the inflammatory response, reducing swelling and promoting a more balanced immune reaction. This is beneficial in conditions where inflammation contributes to pain or dysfunction.

6. Pain Modulation:

The therapy also interacts with nerve cells, affecting pain perception. Cold laser therapy is known to have analgesic (pain-relieving) effects by influencing the transmission of pain signals.

7. Enhanced Blood Flow:

By promoting vasodilation (dilation of blood vessels), cold laser therapy improves blood circulation in the treated area. This increased blood flow delivers more oxygen and nutrients to the cells, supporting the healing process.

8. Collagen Production:

Cold laser therapy stimulates the production of collagen, a crucial protein in tissue repair. This is particularly valuable in treating injuries or conditions that involve connective tissues, such as tendons and ligaments.

9. Acceleration of Healing:

Overall, the combined effects of increased energy production, improved cellular function, reduced inflammation, and enhanced circulation contribute to the acceleration of the natural healing process.

Cold laser therapy is used in various medical and therapeutic settings for conditions ranging from musculoskeletal injuries to chronic pain management. It is a non-invasive and well-tolerated modality that complements other treatment approaches, promoting overall wellness and recovery.

What to Expect During Treatment?

Laser therapy is pain-free! Cold lasers function without generating detectable heat. As a result, when the laser touches the skin, patients do not feel any warmth or burning. Most individuals experience no sensation during the treatment, while a small number may perceive a slight tingling.

Commonly Treated Conditions:

  • Tendon and ligament injuries
  • Disc disease (bulges, herniations, injuries)
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Muscle strains and tears
  • Joint and muscle pain
  • Arthritis and degenerative joint conditions


  • Neurological pain
  • Chronic non-healing wounds
  • General pain
  • Musculoskeletal disorders
  • Pre and post-surgical treatment
  • Anti-inflammation and anti-edema

How Much Treatment is Needed?

For optimal results, a series of 6 treatments is recommended, scheduled with no more than 1-2 days in between. The cumulative effects of the laser enhance its efficacy. Post the initial 6 sessions, further treatments can be chosen based on the doctor's recommendations.

What Does Treatment Cost?

The series of 6 treatments is priced at $270.00 for existing patients. New patients must undergo a new patient examination before any treatment, with a cost of $45.00 for single visits. Flexible spending, health saving accounts, and major credit cards are accepted.

Can I Opt for Laser Treatment Only?

Absolutely. Laser treatments can be availed independently of chiropractic care.

For Standalone Laser Treatment:

If you're not an existing patient and seek laser treatment alone, a thorough examination will be conducted to explain your condition, treatment plan, and perform the first laser treatment on the same day.
