How does laser therapy work?

At South Lake Medical Center, your doctor uses innovative Mega Class IV Laser Therapy™ to reduce your pain and inflammation, as well as stimulate your body’s natural healing response. The laser light energy from the Mega Class IV Laser deeply penetrates through your skin (from three to nine inches) to stimulate the regenerative properties of your cells.

Much like photosynthesis in plants, your cells have light-sensitive elements, that when exposed to the laser light, set into motion a series of healing events. Laser light therapy leads to increased:

  • Endorphin release
  • Fluid drainage
  • Toxin removal
  • Muscle relaxation
  • Blood flow

This combination, along with other benefits of laser therapy, combine to ignite your body’s natural restorative abilities.

What issues can laser therapy treat?

Your doctor may recommend laser therapy to treat a wide variety of skeletal, muscular, and chronic pain conditions, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Joint pain
  • Back pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Tendonitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

It can be used anywhere on the body and is often administered on the spine, shoulder, arm, knee, hip, and neck.

What happens during laser therapy?

When you have laser therapy at South Lake Medical Center, you’re shown to a private room where your laser therapy occurs. Depending on your condition and the treatment area, the doctor instructs you to lay on your back or front.

Your doctor uses the laser’s handheld device on your treatment area, putting it in direct contact to your body. Depending on your specific case, they may hold the device there anywhere from 30 seconds to a few minutes.

You may have multiple areas treated during one appointment.

The device sends non-thermal laser light painlessly through your skin to your injured area. From start to finish, laser therapy takes about 15 minutes. Once the treatment is complete, you’re free to leave and, in most cases, the doctor gives you no restrictions.


Patient Testimonial

After hearing about our Joint Regeneration results, this patient came to us all the way from the Phillipines to avoid knee replacement surgery. She had to have person under each arm holding her up due to severe knee pain. Her pain level was a 9 out of 10 and constant. X-rays both are taken weight bearing: 

Notice the x-ray on the left. There is so much degeneration on the surface the joint line is is completely "obliterated". It is not visually detectable. The x-ray on the right is 6 months after Amniotic Allograft Injection. Notice how there is now a nice joint spacing in the where before there was nothing. Her pain level is now a 1-2 and intermittent. She is very happy as she has avoided joint replacement surgery. This could be you!! Call now for your evaluation.

How many laser treatments do you need?

The amount of laser therapy you need depends on a range of factors including your condition, its severity, and how quickly your body responds to the treatment. In most cases, the team at South Lake Medical Center recommend two to four treatments a week over the course of two to eight weeks.

If you’re looking for a way to heal your body instead of just treat your symptoms, consider laser therapy. Call South Lake Medical Center today to schedule your appointment or book it easily online.
