Laser therapy is a non-invasive technique used to help reduce pain and inflammation. Laser therapy can be safely used as an adjunct or replacement for pharmaceutical drugs. This pain relief treatment is FDA cleared and enables patients to have an alternative to drugs and surgery.
Laser therapy treatments last between 5 and 10 minutes depending on the condition being treated. Laser therapy treatments may be administered directly to skin, as laser light cannot penetrate through layers of clothing. The patient will feel a soothing warmth as the therapy is administered.
Depending on the condition being treated the therapy may be administered through either a contact or non-contact hand piece. The contact hand piece is designed to allow the practitioner to physically manipulate the tissue while administering the treatment, resulting in a laser-massage. This allows for light to penetrate deeper into tissues than the non-contact hand piece due to it’s ability to displace tissue through the laser-massage technique.
Patients generally see results after 3 to 5 treatments. Dr. Ron will develop a treatment plan that is optimal for your condition.
