How long will it take until I feel better?
The length of the therapy is dependent upon the severity and chronicity of your condition and your specific goals for rehabilitation.
How long are the treatment sessions?
Typically, treatments last about one hour. If somebody needs more treatment time to address his or her individual needs, scheduling ahead can accommodate this. The extension of treatment time is determined mutually by the patient and nurse.
Why do you often treat the whole body even if the problem is just in one location?
Because of the anatomical interconnection of the fascial and cranial systems. The restrictions and interferences are not generally as localized as the problem. A restriction from a distant region can travel along the fascial connections contributing to the problem. Also, an injury in one location can travel into other regions of the body that can interfere with the complete healing process. A whole person approach is utilized unless otherwise determined by the patient and nurse.

What is Cold Laser Therapy?
The term Cold Laser refers to the use of low-intensity or low levels of laser light. Researchers believe Cold Laser Therapy works by activating cells to better respond to injury and stress. The damaged cells stimulated by the laser might produce more proteins and anti-inflammatory chemicals to promote healing. At this time, no research studies have shown any serious side effects when administered properly. Pregnant women should not receive this due to unknown risks in unborn children and children should not have cold laser near the ends of growing bones.
