What is Laser Therapy?
Laser Therapy, or “photobiomodulation,” is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to create therapeutic effects. These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling. Laser Therapy has been widely utilized in Europe by physical therapists, nurses and doctors as far back as the 1970’s. Now, after FDA clearance in 2002, Laser Therapy is being used extensively in the United States.
Laser Therapeutic Effects
During each painless treatment laser energy increase circulation, drawing water, oxygen and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.
Cellular Effects of Laser Therapy
During Laser Therapy the infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level and metabolic activity increases within the cell, improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane. This initiates the production of cellular energy (ATP) that leads to a cascade of beneficial effects, increasing cellular function and health.

Patient benefits of Laser Therapy
Laser Therapy is proven to biostimulate tissue repair and growth. The laser accelerates the healing process and decreases inflammation, pain and scar tissue formation. In the management of chronic pain Class IV Laser Therapy can provide dramatic results.
Numerous Studies show that Laser Therapy can help with:
I had low back and knee pain and both legs went numb after just a few minutes of standing for 3 whole years. Kaiser said there was nothing they could do to help me. So I went to see a chiropractor for several visits. The chiropractor said he got me balanced — but I still had as much pain as I did before I started.
With Dr Linda’s laser therapy … 75% of my low back pain was gone after 2 visits. After the third visit, I was able to walk for an hour without my legs going numb and I had no low back pain. Now I’m back to gardening and climbing on ladders. When I went to Hawaii on vacation, I was able to walk a lot — more than I was able to for 3 years. Now with my 82nd birthday coming up next week, I’m going to get back to the gym to start working out again. Thank you Dr Linda for your laser therapy. You gave me my life back again! ~ Tony Freitas
