Laser Therapy Q & A

What is laser therapy?

Laser therapy is an innovative treatment that harnesses the power of light energy to stimulate your body’s natural healing ability. The laser reduces inflammation, relieves pain, and triggers tissue repair. 

Dr. Kloud uses the Class IV Diowave™ 60 Watt laser system to deliver customizable laser therapy and versatile treatment options. The treatment can address pain from your head and neck to your ankles and feet. Laser therapy accelerates the healing process and can also stimulate your immune system and improve the function of damaged neurological tissue. 

What conditions improve with laser therapy?

Dr. Kloud offers laser therapy to address a wide range of painful conditions, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Baker’s cyst
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Gout
  • Hallux Valgus (hammertoe)
  • Myofasciitis
  • Neuroma
  • Psoriasis
  • Tarsal tunnel syndrome
  • Tendonitis

Laser therapy is also a useful treatment for injuries like ligament, tendon, and cartilage tears, fractures, shin splints, and more. The procedure can even break up scar tissue, reduce edema, and soothe bruising and muscle spasms. It can increase your range of motion and help you get back to your regular activities quickly and safely. 

What happens during laser therapy?

During your laser therapy appointment, you sit or rest comfortably on a treatment bed or chair. You and Dr. Kloud wear goggles to protect your eyes from the laser. You may need to partially undress to reveal the part of your body that requires treatment. 

Then, Dr. Kloud uses a handheld wand to direct the laser into your muscles, connective tissue, and bones. A laser therapy treatment usually takes between 5-10 minutes, and most patients have a series of treatments to achieve optimal results. 

Laser therapy is noninvasive and painless. Many patients report a warm, soothing sensation as well as reduced muscle tension and increased range of motion after a single treatment. 

You don’t need to take any time off to recover after your treatment, but you should avoid strenuous activity for a few days. The laser stimulates your body’s natural healing response, and overexertion could interfere with that process. 

If you live with chronic pain and are interested in laser therapy, make an appointment with Dr. Kloud. She provides comprehensive consultations and physical exams to determine if laser therapy is right for you.
