We aren't after pain meds.
We are after treatment that will reduce pain.
Just because you’re dealing with persistent lower back pain, arthritis, carpal tunnel, tendonitis, knee pain, fibromyalgia, chronic headaches, or any other type of ongoing pain issue, it doesn’t mean you’re destined to become dependent on prescription painkillers or undergo surgery. At Summit Health Group, Dr. Shay Shani provides Hot laser therapy to patients looking for a safe, effective pain management alternative
What is cold laser therapy?
hot laser therapy is a gentle, effective pain relief treatment that involves the use of cutting-edge Class IV hot laser technology, also known as a deep tissue laser. hot laser therapy works by targeting an area affected by trauma, inflammation, or malfunction with precisely directed, deeply penetrating beams of laser light that stimulate the biochemical reaction of cells to promote healing. Specifically, once the light passes through your skin and reaches the targeted area, it initiates a series of reactions in the cell that eventually help normalize injured tissue to reduce pain, inflammation, and the amount of time it takes to completely heal.
What conditions can benefit from cold laser therapy?
hot laser therapy is an effective treatment for a wide variety of pain-related conditions because the laser itself stimulates all types of cells, including those that make up muscles, ligaments, cartilage, nerves, and bone. hot laser therapy is routinely used to dramatically improve pain associated with many common conditions, including:
Lower back pain
Herniated or slipped discs
Sciatic nerve issues
Chronic headaches or migraines
Whiplash and other neck injuries
TMJ, or jaw disorders
Arthritis, including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Plantar fasciitis, or heel inflammation
Tendonitis and bursitis
Sports injuries, including pulled muscles
Hot laser therapy can help with virtually any joint, muscle, circulatory, or inflammatory condition. It’s also a useful alternative for those who want to manage post-surgical pain without medication.
What is the treatment like?
Cold laser therapy is a gentle, in-office treatment that can usually be done in just a few minutes, depending on the size of the area that the practitioner is treating. The laser is a handheld device that’s about the size of a flashlight. Placing it directly over your skin, your dedicated Summit Health Group practitioner will pass the laser systematically across the treatment area for as little as 30 seconds, or for several minutes, depending on the nature of your condition and the dose of energy being provided by the laser.
This non-invasive treatment is comfortable for most patients and doesn’t require any downtime, meaning you can resume normal activities as soon as it’s over. Although most patients need multiple treatments to achieve optimal pain relief, they can often accomplish it in just five to ten sessions.
