Laser Therapy Q & A

What is laser therapy?

The word laser is an acronym that stands for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. Also known as photo biomodulation, laser therapy harnesses specific wavelengths of light energy for healing purposes. 

The team at Johnson Medical Center uses a Class IV laser to create therapeutic effects, including pain relief, increased circulation, and reduced swelling. This powerful technology is FDA-approved to improve healing and decrease inflammation. 

What does laser therapy treat?

The team at Johnson Medical Center uses  a 30 watt laser to treat a broad range of health problems, including:

  • Back pain 
  • Neck pain
  • Arthritis
  • Tendinopathies
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Sprains and strains
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Myofascial trigger point pain
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Chronic non-healing wounds
  • Neuropathic pain

Many of these issues cause pain, swelling, and stiffness that lasts for several weeks or longer. Laser therapy can reduce or eliminate the need for pain-relieving medications and speed up the healing process.

Laser therapy is safe and effective, with no known side effects. Many research studies show the benefits of laser therapy, including:

  • Relaxation of muscle tension and spasms
  • Relief of pain and stiffness due to arthritis

What should I expect from laser therapy?

First, the team at Johnson Medical Center carefully reviews your medical history and performs a physical exam to make sure that laser therapy is right for you. Then, they create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

Laser therapy is a painless and noninvasive treatment that produces results in a short period of time. The number of treatments you need depends on your condition. Some people experience improvement from one treatment, while chronic conditions may require 10 sessions or more.

During treatment, your provider applies a handheld laser device to the area of pain or tissue damage. All you need to do is relax while the laser stimulates your natural healing process. There‚Äôs no pain or anesthesia involved, but you may need to wear protective glasses if the treatment area is near your face.
