 Preventive Medicine’s Healing Laser Program
  At Preventive Medicine our preferred approach is to offer alternative solutions to
  pain verses medications and surgery. Laser therapy helps correct and repair the ail-
  ment instead of temporarily relieving the pain. Listed below are some commonly
  treated conditions:

  How Does Laser Therapy Work?

  Low Level Laser Therapy is the use of light to treat musculoskeletal injuries as well as
  chronic and degenerative conditions. The light source is place in contact with the skin al-
  lowing the energy to penetrate tissue with the goal of restoring the tissue to its normal state.
  Low Level Laser Therapy has been FDA approved as a treatment device to reduce or elimi-
  nate pain and promote healing with no significant risk.

  How Many Treatment Do I Need?

  Typically 5-25 treatments ranging from 15-60 minutes in duration are required. The num-
  ber of treatments will vary depending on your healing response and injury site. In most
  cases no additional maintenance is required after the prescribed treatments are done.
