What is laser therapy?
Laser therapy is a method of pain treatment that utilizes FDA-approved lasers to perform Photobiomodulation, a process by which photons (from the laser source) enter deep tissue in the painful area and trigger internal processes within the body that can increase cellular metabolism while reducing pain and inflammation. Laser therapy has been demonstrated to provide long-lasting relief from pain for patients with both acute and chronic conditions.

At Center for Pain Management, we are dedicated to providing our patients with the very best laser therapies available on the market today. That is why we use the Theralase TLC-2000 system.

What do laser treatments for pain reduction feel like?
One of the most obvious benefits of laser therapy for pain is that the treatments themselves are incredibly comfortable. Unlike surgery or even cortisone shots, laser treatments are painless, with many patients reporting only a gentle warming sensation in the treatment area. Laser therapy is a fast and effective treatment method that requires no recovery time. Generally, patients are able to return to all of their normal activities immediately following their treatment sessions. In addition, the sessions themselves are very quick, often completed in about 15-30 minutes, depending on the size and number of the areas needing treatment.
