ABOUT deep tissue laser therapy

The deep tissue therapeutic laser is a powerful, class IV therapeutic laser that offers a safe, painless and powerful option for those suffering with significant neurological and musculoskeletal conditions.  This is the treatment of choice for difficult to treat conditions such as:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Arthritis/joint degeneration of knees, hips, shoulders, etc
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Spinal degeneration/stenosis/pinched nerves
  • Chronic tendonitis

These are just a few examples of common conditions in which conservative treatment gets mixed results and medical treatment is either strong drugs or invasive procedures including surgery.  With the above examples, conservative treatment may work if started early enough but sometimes these common conditions fail to respond and worsen to the point where strong drugs, injections and eventually surgery are the only options.  That’s where the deep tissue laser therapy comes in.

The deep tissue laser therapy offers a powerful, safe, painless and most importantly, EFFECTIVE option for when conditions are advanced and will often PREVENT the need for strong drugs, injections or surgery. 

The deep tissue laser therapy gets results because of the vast array of physiological effects it has on tissue.  Here are just a few:

Anti-inflammatory:Anti-edema effect by causing vasodilation and activating lymph drainage thereby reducing inflammation and swelling

Pain Relief:Blocks pain nerves and causes release of natural pain killing chemicals

Accelerated Tissue Repair:Photons penetrate tissue and increase energy available for cells to repair and get rid of waste.

Improved Vascular Activity:Laser light increases formation of capillaries which speeds healing process, closes wounds quickly and reduces scar tissue.

Increases Metabolic Activity:Laser therapy creates higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells.

Improved Nerve Function:Laser light speeds the process of nerve cell reconnection.

These are just a few of the reasons why the deep tissue laser therapy gets results with conditions that are notoriously difficult to treat.  Put simply, the laser light results in reduced inflammation, pain relief, and increased energy to the cells for accelerated healing.  All achieved with a painless, safe and drug-free treatment.


Success rate with the conditions mentioned above reach 85%-90%. 

Treatment sessions typically take 15-30 minutes depending on severity of the condition and number of body parts treated.

If the following describes you, please consider trying deep tissue laser therapy:

  • Anyone suffering with chronic or severe conditions listed above as well as most other neurological or musculoskeletal conditions that have proven difficult to resolve with conservative care.
  • Those that have been treated medically for above conditions and have achieved incomplete or poor results
  • Those facing invasive procedures including surgery
  • Those not wanting to take strong drugs

Again, deep tissue laser therapy is

  • Painless
