Laser Therapy for Pain
Studies estimate that 50 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. Pain in any form can negatively impact your mood, self-confidence, relationships, and performance at work.
If you suffer from acute or chronic pain, you can find a solution that isn’t medication or surgery. Laser therapy for pain targets the source of your pain to give you noticeable pain relief without surgery, medications, and significant downtimes.
What Is Aspen Laser Therapy
Laser is an acronym for “Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation.” Low-level laser therapy has been used in medicine since the 1960s. Aspen laser therapy improves upon the concept, as it is a form of high-intensity laser therapy.
Aspen laser therapy represents class four laser technology and provides power levels 1,200 times more powerful than classes one, two, and three low-level laser therapy.
As a result, it delivers significantly higher dosage levels to penetrate the deepest levels of the skin and tissues to reach damaged cells.
After absorbing the laser’s light energy (mostly in the form of photons), the cell’s metabolism is boosted, producing energy that stimulates cell/tissue repair to re-establish a normal, healthy state.

Common conditions this treatment is successful for include inflammation, damaged nerves, tight muscles, chronic body pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, arthritis, sports injuries, and some types of sprains and strains. This is not a full list.
How Is Laser Therapy for Pain Performed?
Aspen laser therapy has the power to penetrate the deepest layers of the skin and tissues, allowing the laser to reach the damaged cells. In doing so, this treatment has been shown to alleviate inflammation, increase blood flow and lymphatic drainage, stimulate nerve regeneration, and increase muscle relaxation and collagen production.
After the body absorbs the laser’s light energy, the cell’s metabolism is boosted, stimulating cell or tissue repair. Laser pain therapy treats the root cause of pain and injury by enhancing the body’s natural healing processes, while other products temporarily treat or mask symptoms.
On average, treatments last between five to 10 minutes. However, treatment times depend on:
- The size of the treatment area
- Depth of the penetration needed
- Type of condition being treated
These conditions can lengthen the treatment time.

Laser therapy for pain is a popular treatment because it’s virtually pain-free and has zero side effects. There is no risk of burnt skin or damaging the skin tissue. Additionally, there is no downtime or recovery, so you can do this treatment on your lunch break and continue with your day.
