What is High Power Laser Therapy (HPLT).
A: HPLT is a medical procedure that uses highly focused laser light energy to treat pain and inflammation. It works at the cellular level by stimulating the body’s natural healing processes. It works equally as well, whether the injury is acute or chronic.
Q: Is it safe?
A: Since the company received FDA Clearance in 2003, over a million patient treatments have been performed and there has never been a reported side effect. The Avicenna laser can be found in every medical discipline including prestigious medical schools. It is frequently used to treat professional athletes in the NFL, NBA and MLB.
Q: Is the treatment painful?
A: No, actually it is quite comfortable and soothing. Only a feeling of deep warming and pain relieve is felt during the treatment.
Why is Avicenna HPLT better than traditional types of medicine?
A: First unlike in traditional medicine, we try to identify the reason why your condition developed in the first place. Many times when dealing from conditions from the low back to the feet, they are gait and biomechanically related. Once we identify these issues we then try to correct the biomechanical cause for your pain. This is typically done with a custom orthotic. Once an optimal environment for tissue healing is achieved, the laser will be able to reduce your inflammation and heal your injury on a long term if not permanent basis.
Q: How many treatments does it typically take?
A: Most conditions require between 6 and 15 sessions to achieve a maximum therapeutic result from HPLT.
Q: Why doesn’t my doctor know about it?
A: Because it is a rather new and upcoming treatment approach, many physicians who do not deal with neuromusculoskeletal pain on a daily basis have not yet heard about this revolutionary safe treatment modality.
Q: Will I need to continue treatments indefinitely?
A: No, our goal is to try and correct biomechanical abnormalities and then encourage healing by your body thru High Power Laser Therapy. Our results are therefore better and long term, all without side effects!
