Laser Therapy

What is laser therapy?

Laser therapy is an innovative pain management tool that promotes healing of diseased or damaged tissue to reduce pain, heal tissue, and improve health. Dr. Sheps is considered a laser therapy expert. 

He not only uses the advanced treatment tool on his patients, but also educates other health care providers about the benefits and uses of laser therapy and trains them to use this specialized equipment for treatment.

Am I a good candidate for laser therapy?

Dr. Sheps determines if you’re a good candidate for laser therapy during a consultation. He uses the advanced tool to treat many conditions, including chronic neck and back pain, as well as auto and sports injuries. 

Dr. Sheps also uses laser therapy for the treatment of trigger points, which are muscle knots that cause radiating pain, and to prevent the formation of fibrous scar tissue, which may impair mobility.

How does laser therapy work?

Laser therapy works by treating the underlying cause of your pain or health issue. The targeted energy created by the laser reduces inflammation and stimulates the lymphatic system to remove fluids. 

The energy also accelerates cellular growth and activity to improve the tissue repair process to help heal your diseased or damaged tissue.

The laser energy also stimulates the growth of new nerves, as well as the formation of new blood vessels, which improves nutrient delivery to the injury to further enhance wound healing. 

What can I expect during laser therapy?

Laser therapy with Dr. Sheps is conducted at the office. It’s a quick and painless experience that provides immediate results. During your treatment, Dr. Sheps places the laser wand over the treatment area, and the energy emitted by the wand targets the cells under your skin to stimulate the repair process.

There’s no downtime following your laser therapy and you can return to your usual activities afterward. To get the most out of laser therapy, Dr. Sheps may recommend a series of treatments over a set period of time. He develops your treatment plan before you get started so you know what to expect. 

Once you finish your laser therapy sessions you should experience long-term pain relief.
