About Huntington Laser Therapy

Huntington Laser offers advanced Class IV laser therapy utilizing our in house K-Laser technology. K-Laser therapy lasers are clinically proven to treat a wide range of conditions.  Laser therapy, or "photobiomodulation", is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to create therapeutic effects.  These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling.  Laser therapy has been widely utilized in Europe by physical therapists, nurses and doctors as far back as the 1970s.  Now, after FDA clearance in 2002, Laser therapy is being used extensively in the United States.

Our K-Laser technology differs from other available laser units in terms of wavelength, power and pulse modulation.  These parameters allow our trained specialists to determine penetration depth and dose distribution for each treatment session.  We can estimate treatment time and biological effect allowing our therapy sessions to make a difference to every patient’s condition.

Please review the video below which explains the origins and benefits of Laser therapy.

The Yankees like other professional sports teams invest tens of millions of dollars in their star athletes and cannot afford to have their players on the sidelines with injury.  Trainers and medical teams work with injured players to get them back on the field as soon as possible.  K-Laser therapy (which is now offered by Huntington Laser) plays a prominent role in helping athletes recover more quickly from acute and chronic sporting injuries.  Contact us today to discuss how Huntington Laser therapy can help you with your sports injuries and get you back on the field!

How it works

During each painless treatment, laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area.  This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain.  As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.

During Laser therapy, infrared laser light penetrates deep into tissue and accelerates metabolic activity within the cell, improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane.  This initiates the production of cellular energy (ATP) that leads to a cascade of beneficial effects, increasing cellular function and health.

Huntington Laser is committed to providing our patients with up-to-date and accurate information regarding our laser therapy, allowing patients to confidently choose Huntington Laser therapy.  A list of frequently asked questions (FAQ’s) regarding our laser therapy can be found below:
  • Does it hurt?  What does a treatment feel like?
    • There is little or no sensation during treatment.  Often one feels mild, soothing warmth or tingling.  Many patients feel a significant reduction in pain after the first visit
  • Are there any side effects or associated risks?
    • No.  In rare instances pain syndromes may feel aggravated for a day, as the healing response is more active after treatment
  • How long does each treatment take?
    • The typical treatment is 3 to 9 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated
  • How often should a patient be treated?
    • Acute conditions may be treated daily, particularly if they are accompanied by significant pain.  More chronic problems respond better when treatments are received 2 to 3 times a week, tapering to once a week or once every other week, with improvement
  • How many treatments does it take?
    • This depends on the nature of the condition being treated.  For some acute conditions 1 to 6 treatments may be sufficient. Those of a more chronic nature may require 10 treatments.  Conditions such as severe arthritis may require ongoing periodic care to control pain
  • How long before the results are felt?
    • You may feel improvements in your condition (usually pain reduction) after the very first treatment.  Sometimes you will not feel improvement for a number of treatments.  This does not mean that the condition is not improving.  Each treatment is cumulative and results are often felt after 3 or 4 sessions
  • Can it be used in conjunction with other forms of treatment?
    • Yes!  Laser therapy can be used with other forms of treatment, including physical therapy, chiropractic adjustments, massage, soft tissue mobilization, electrotherapy and even following surgery.  Other healing modalities are complementary and can be used with laser to increase the effectiveness of the treatment
  • How should I dress for a K-Laser treatment?
    • Your K-Laser treatment must be delivered directly to your skin.  Wear clothing that will allow access to the area, shorts, sweat pants, sports bra or similar items are suggested.  Alternatively, your doctor will have you change into a patient gown if the area needing K-Laser treatment is not readily accessible
  • How will I feel after the treatment?
    • You may feel pain relief after just the first treatment.  For other patients, it takes a while longer.  Most patients report feeling very relaxed.  If you feel less pain, keep in mind that pain reduction is just one goal.  The K-Laser is giving your body cells more energy so they repair and regenerate new tissues.  The effect of K-Laser therapy treatments is cumulative. You will be getting more benefit with successive treatments
  • Has effectiveness been demonstrated scientifically?
    • Yes.  There are thousands of published studies demonstrating the clinical effectiveness of laser therapy.  Among them, there are more than one hundred rigorously controlled, scientific studies that document the effectiveness of laser therapy for many clinical conditions
  • How much does it cost?
    • A laser therapy session will cost $60
  • Is K-Laser covered by insurance?
    • No.  Laser therapy is such a new technology that is is not currently covered by insurance companies
