Why choose laser therapy over other forms of therapy?
It does not require drugs or surgery, there are fewer side effects or risks, and it is quick and convenient. Studies have shown that it is equal to or more effective than other forms of rehabilitation or physical therapy. Pain relief is often experienced after just one treatment.
Does it hurt? What does the treatment feel like?
There is little or no sensation during treatment. Occasionally patients feel a mild, soothing, warm sensation. There is no pain associated during laser application. Laser treatment is relaxing and some people even fall asleep.
On the other hand, there are rare instances when pain can increase or temporarily worsen 12-24 hours after a treatment session. This is because the laser light starts the healing process. This can occur with chronic pain cases, but it usually subsides after a few days. If this occurs, there is no need for alarm, the pain will subside.
How long does the treatment take?
The typical course of treatment is 10-minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. Acute conditions may be treated daily, particularly if they are accompanied by significant pain. More chronic problems respond better when treatments are received 2 to 3 times a week. Treatment plans are determined on an individual basis.
How many treatments does it take?
This depends on the nature of the condition being treated. For some acute conditions, 2 to 6 treatments may be sufficient. More chronic conditions may require 6-10 sessions. Conditions such as severe arthritis may require ongoing periodic care to control pain.
How long before results are felt?
You may feel improvement in your condition (usually pain reduction) after the very first treatment. Not everyone responds to laser therapy and results cannot be guaranteed. Each treatment is cumulative and results are often felt after 2 to 4 sessions. Treatments just take a few minutes, however the therapeutic effect continues to sooth and heal long after you leave our office.
Are the results long lasting?
Therapeutic Laser Therapy is about healing. It’s not about masking or covering up a condition. When you feel better from this therapy… it’s because you are better. Therefore results have been found to be quite long lasting.
Can it be used in conjunction with other forms of treatment?
Yes, laser therapy is even more effective when combined with other forms of therapy, including chiropractic, Active Release Technique, Graston. We encourage our patients to complement their laser treatment with rehabilitative treatments at Brentwood Spine and Sport to further support your fast pain relief and healing.
Is it a cold laser treatment?
No! Our laser is a Class-4 Deep Tissue Laser with much deeper penetrating power. No cold laser on the market today can come close to the fast-acting therapeutic effects of our Class-4 device. Chronic pain relief and hard-to-fix cases are our specialty. We have many patients who have tried cold laser therapy with no success and with just ONE Class IV heat laser treatment they start feeling better. All lasers are not the same.

How do I know if laser therapy is right for me?
We will evaluate your condition and perform a complete laser therapy examination to determine if you are a candidate for this procedure. Call us to schedule your complimentary evaluation and Q&A session. The only way to know is to try a course of therapy.
Can laser therapy be used over medical implants or over metal?
Yes, laser therapy is a light treatment. No heating is involved with the surgical or metal implants. It can be used safely with no side effects. It is extremely effective for post-operative wound healing. Many hip and knee replacement patients see us for care.
Is it covered by medical insurance?
Some insurance covers the procedure, but not many. Most patients who decide to receive the benefits of laser therapy are sick and tired of being sick and tired, so they see laser therapy as an investment that is effective, non-invasive, and much more cost effective than surgery and hours and hours of physical therapy.
