Lubbock Laser Therapy: Cutting Edge Treatment

Lubbock Laser therapy is a cutting edge treatment option available within Lubbock Primary Care. Dr. Shanklin is proud to introduce the highest powered class 4 medical laser available in Lubbock- A Diowave 60 Watt HDLT. Class 4 laser therapy uses a warm (vs cold laser) with a wide wave length to penetrate deep in to the soft tissue of muscles, joints and skin.

This is a cutting edge therapy that stimulates blood flow, lymphatic drainage and healing on a cellular and molecular level. It can be used on muscle strains, joint sprains and osteoarthritic joints. Dr. Shanklin has used the laser on his own shoulder and reports it was more effective than a steroid shot.

The most profound successes have been from using the laser on neuropathic pains, specifically hand pain from carpal tunnel syndrome and foot pain from diabetic peripheral neuropathy. The laser is also specifically designed to kill toenail fungus without exposing your body to harmful antifungals. These cutting edge treatments are not covered by insurance so cash pricing only is available.

Have Questions?

Is Laser Therapy Safe?

A. Laser Therapy has been in use for decades. The procedure is incredibly safe and most patients report little to any side effects. Occasionally, some patients may experience aggravation to the underlying condition for a few days, as the healing response becomes more active after a laser treatment.

How Does Laser Therapy Work?

A. When laser light penetrates the skin to treat the underlying tissue, the photons emitted by the laser are absorbed by the cells and converted into energy. Additionally, the cell membrane permeability is altered triggering such benefits as: Stimulation of ATP and the respiratory chain, increased levels of beta endorphins and serotonin and enhanced collagen synthesis.

What are Some Advantages of Laser Therapy Compared to Other Treatment Options?

A. Laser Therapy treatment does not require the use of drugs or surgery, and there are no dangerous side effects or risks. In addition, Laser therapy provides enhanced treatment outcomes faster than any other treatment modality.

How Many Treatments Should I Expect to Need for Best Results?

A. For most acute conditions 5-6 treatments is all that is needed. Chronic conditions take longer and might require 6-12 treatments. While these are the averages, each person is unique and healing time varies by person and condition. For those with life long conditions we may recommend 1 or 2 follow up treatments each month.

How Long is Treatment Session?

A. Depending on the conditions, treatment time will last on average 5-10 minute but is based on the size of the area, depth of penetration needed and condition being treated.

When Can I Resume Normal Activity?

A. The moment a patient leaves the clinic, they may resume normal daily activity. It is important for patients to remember to not overexert themselves for a few days as the body is still healing.
