Laser Therapy


What is Laser Therapy and how does it work?

Very simply, Laser Therapy uses light energy to accelerate the healing of
tissue within your body. Every cell type will respond to light energy.


What types of problems does Laser Therapy treat?

Laser Therapy is proven to help arthritic knees, chronic shoulder injuries,
painful feet, carpal tunnel syndrome, and many other injuries. If you have
pain that just won’t go away, chances are Laser Therapy will help!


What can I expect from a Laser Therapy treatment?

A treatment takes between 10 – 15 minutes. We will place small clusters
which emit light on the area to be treated, and you will have a chance to
relax, read, and listen to music.


Are there any negative side effects from Laser Therapy?

No. Although there are rare cases that Laser Therapy does not help a
particular problem, you can be confident that no damage is being done
during a treatment.

How often do I need to receive Laser Therapy?

For minor problems, 6 treatments are often enough. For chronic and more
serious injuries, typically 12 or more treatments are needed for full results.
Treatments are usually done 2-3 times per week.


How will I know if Laser Therapy is right for me?

If you are experiencing any type of pain, a free consultation with Dr. Smith
will determine if Laser Therapy is the right choice for you.


What are patients saying about this therapy?

“I have had great success with the laser treatments.  When I first came in my knee was very painful and stairs were hard to go up and down.  After 6 treatments I am now able to go up and down and kneel.  I am grateful to Dr. Smith for his kindness and care.  I recommend these treatments to anyone, especially with knee problems.”  ~Linda Woodruff,  Stettler


“I was experiencing pain in my heel [and] I also recently injured my knee.  I came for the recommended visits and really saw a big improvement.  The inflammation went down which gave my knee more flexibility and promoted the healing to speed up.  My heel pain significantly decreased.”  ~Cremona Primrose, Big Valley


“I had discomfort in my knees and lower back.  After nine treatments, I am virtually pain free.  I am amazed at the results!”  ~ Mandy Wild,  Stettler


“I can’t stress enough how amazing the laser treatments have been for relieving the pain in my feet.  I have had surgery and drugs, and nothing has alleviated the pain like the laser treatments.  Once the pain is gone you can stop dreading every next step and get on with living!”  ~Jane Skocdopole,  Botha


“After the first treatment I felt like I slept really well that night.  The next day and second treatment was again a surprise as I could tell I had less pain and again slept well.  The third treatment really made me aware of the lessening of the pain.  I was able to walk straighter, not so much side to side.  After six treatments the difference is great.  I have fewer leg cramps and my knees feel stronger [with] way less pain.  I can climb stairs and don’t feel like my knees are going to give out”  ~ Patricia McKinnon,  Stettler
