The way Laser Therapy works is complicated, but what you need to know is simply this...it works!
Albert Einstein proposed this theory in 1917 but it wasn't until recently that science has caught up the wonders of what this type of painless, non-surgical Laser Therapy can do.
What actually happens is that damaged and painful cewlls and tissues can heal and feel better quickly through what is called photo-biomodulation and use it to heal.
Take for instance a really tough condition like carpal Tunnel Syndrome that causes people to have surgery...let's look at a quotes...
"We were introduced to the K-laser midway last season and it immediately became an integral part of our treatment options with the Cincinnati Bengal's. It made our low-level laser virtually obsolete and proved to be very helpful in returning our injured athletes to the field quickly."

Good question. Most all the laser therapy up to this point has been in the form of Class III lasers. While class III therapeutic lasers can be effective, they are much less powerful than the new technology available Class IV lasers that are being described here.
These new lasers have been researched and used in treatment European countries. Over that course of time it has been discovered that specific wattage (power) can now be used for specific conditions, never before available until recently CLEARED by the FDA!
The list of positive effects that this BREAKTHROUGH therapy has on damaged, inured and painful tissue is almost unbelievable.
A: What actually happens is that damaged and painful cells and tissues can heal and feel better quickly through what is called photo-biomodulation and use it to heal. The effects it can have can be:
Low laser therapy devices are class III lasers or "cold" lasers. Their power ranges are in the range of 5 milliwatts to 500.
Our laser is a high-powered therapy device ranging up to 6000 milliwatts! What this means to you is POWERFUL healing capabilities.
This power and penetration of our Laser system is simply NOT attainable with cold laser devices.
Our pain relieving tissue-healing laser is the most powerful laser of its kind in the world
A: It's not uncommon for patients to feel improvement after their very first treatment. In other cases, especially chronic and tough conditions, you may not feel improvement for a number of treatments. This doesn't mean that it's not working. Why? Because each treatment is cumulative. Results are very commonly often felt after 3 or 4 sessions. Heck, most of our patients have had their problems for years and they're overjoyed if they feel better in a few weeks.
A: Because of the new technology with the higher power output of our Therapeutic Laser, treatment times are significantly shortened. Most treatments take only a few minutes, usually less than 10.
A: Like a warm flashlight. It's soothing and painless.
A: Once in a while I'll have a patient say their pain was slightly increased after a treatment. Remember though that pain should not be the ONLY way to judge the progress of your condition. Increased pain may be due to an increase in localized blood flow (which can lead to healing), increased cellular activity, or a number of other 'recovery' effects.
A: Obviously, all conditions are different. As a guideline and a generalization, most tendonitis cases require maybe around six treatments over a two-week period to heal the pain and inflammation.
On the other hand, a chronic arthritis knee pain treatment may require more treatments. Maybe as many as 12-15 laser treatments. When results are achieved, the doctor may prescribe an occasional along with an occasional 'booster' shot of laser therapy to keep you feeling better.
Not bad, huh?
I'm so excited about the possibility of helping people with chronic pain that I'm going to work an extra 5-10 hours per week just to see If I can help you.
Because each case is unique and although this laser therapy may sound like the next "Miracle Cure," It doesn't matter if it can't help YOU.
So, how can you find out if Laser Therapy may help YOU?
For a limited time I will offer FREE phone and/or email consultations to discuss if your specific, unique condition is one that this new laser therapy may help. You can tell me the history of your problem, how it effects you, and what you've tried to help it. I'll be all ears and then give you my opinion on if this may be something that has a chance to help YOUR problem.
Because my time is limited I can only accept 15 consults per week. Any over flow will be scheduled out accordingly

P.S. I currently work 11 hour days. I have two little baby boys and a tired wife :o) I run a busy practice and have a fulfilling yet demanding life, so PLEASE don't schedule a free consult unless you're genuinely interested in learning more about whether this new therapy could help you.
PSS As an extra surprise, when you schedule your consult, I will send you a FREE copy of my almost famous "One page Anti-Inflammatory Diet!" as a bonus! This in and of itself may be a big help to not only feeling better but becoming healthier.We reserve the right to withdraw this offer at any time.
Staff from my office will contact you to find a convenient time for both of us to go over your condition.
I look forward to talking with you.
