Patients often ask, does the treatment hurt? Because of the extensive development and research, this machine is designed to treat conditions without feeling excessive heat. Most patients report they don’t feel anything during the treatment. The technique is called “cold” laser therapy because the low levels of light aren’t enough to heat your body’s tissue. Occasionally, a patient may feel a slight heat at the treatment site, which is normal and indicates your body is responding and inflammation is being addressed.
Many patients also ask how long the treatment lasts. Each person is different, and it can vary. For best results, laser therapy visits are performed consecutively approximately 2-3 times per week. Some conditions like arthritis and degenerative spinal problems may require more sessions to promote healing progress depending upon a patient’s condition.
