Laser Therapy Q&A

What is laser therapy?

Laser therapy is a noninvasive, drug-free treatment option for a variety of painful conditions.

The laser system used by the team at Gould Chiropractic and Laser Pain Center delivers laser energy safely through your skin to trigger a photochemical response in your damaged tissue.

The warm, class 4 laser heats the targeted tissue and floods it with photons. The photons re-energize your cells and stimulate your body’s natural healing processes. 

Laser treatments can reduce inflammation, lessen pain, and accelerate your recovery from acute and chronic diseases and musculoskeletal injuries.

Am I a candidate for laser therapy?

After a comprehensive evaluation of your injury or underlying condition, the team at Gould Chiropractic and Laser Pain Center can determine if laser therapy is right for you. For example, they might recommend laser therapy to treat pain in your neck, knee, back, or shoulder.

You can also benefit from laser therapy to relieve the inflammation and pain of:

  • Sciatica
  • Neuralgia
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Sports injuries
  • Spinal disc damage
  • Sprains and strains
  • Tendonitis and tendonosis
  • Foot and ankle conditions

Laser therapy can help reduce your reliance on pain medications and prevent the need for more invasive procedures, such as surgery, to treat your condition.

What happens during laser therapy?

During your in-office laser therapy session, the Gould Chiropractic and Laser Pain Center team can use either the contact or noncontact handpiece to deliver the laser energy through your skin. The laser can reach the tissue deep within your body to stimulate healing.

When the team applies the laser to your skin, you will feel soothing, warm sensations in the treatment area. Your provider might also manipulate your tissue during the treatment to help the light penetrate deeper into your tissues.

Laser therapy sessions typically last 5-10 minutes and you can expect to receive a series of laser treatments to optimize your healing. Many people experience a significant reduction in their pain after 3-5 treatments. As your body heals from the inside out, you can expect your results to be long-lasting.
