Video // Laser Therapy


Laser therapy is a medical treatment that uses focused light to stimulate a process called photobiomodulation (PBM). During PBM photons enter the tissue and trigger a biological cascade of events that leads to an increase in cellular metabolism, which can decrease pain and inflammation and accelerate the healing process.


Laser therapy is used to treat acute and chronic conditions as well as post-activity recovery. When treating acute conditions, laser therapy is particularly effective when it is administered as soon as possible following the injury. With chronic conditions, laser therapy is used most often to help combat persistent pain and inflammation.


Our doctors of physical therapy will work in close coordination with your physician to provide non-operative, pre-operative, post-operative, and prevention care. They are specialists in:


Dry Needling

Dry needling uses thin filiform needles similar to those used in acupuncture to penetrate the skin and stimulate trigger points to reduce pain.

It is an effective treatment of all orthopedic conditions including acute and chronic conditions. It is also used for the treatment of ongoing tissue damage as a result of repetitive motion, posture, repeated injury

Benefits of Dry Needling Include:

Reduction of pain

• Restoration of motion by releasing muscle

   shortening thereby restoring function

• Facilitation of the healing response in the tissue


Laser therapy is clinically proven to reduce pain and restore mobility. At Physical Therapy Doctors you will experience the power of laser therapy with the most advanced therapeutic options available. This drug-free, surgery-free, pain-free modality quickly relieves pain associated with:
  • TMJ

  • Migraines

  • Planter Fasciitis

  • Carpal Tunnel

  • Bursitis

  • Sports Injuries

  • Soft Tissue Damage

  • More....

  • Neck Pain

  • Back Pain

  • Sciatica

  • Arthritis

  • Bursitis

BFR Benefit

After injury or surgery a patient is usually unable to lift loads or at an effort level known to induce skeletal muscle adaptation. PBFR allows the clinician to begin the strength and hypertrophy phases of rehabilitation much earlier. PBFR has demonstrated statistically significant improved patient outcomes after anterior cruciate ligament surgery both acutely and chronically.

BFR has positive results in many conditions including but not limited to:

Total joint arthroplasties, Achilles repairs, fractures, rotator cuff repairs, muscle strains, nerve injuries, post-operative knee reconstructions and cartilage repairs, and tendinopathies.

The research to date has found that PBFR training promotes muscle hypertrophy and strength gains more effectively compared to traditional low load weight lifting.

PBFR has consistently been demonstrated to be a safe modality in the literature. It has been performed on thousands of subjects in the peer-reviewed literature with little to no side effects.

BFR also helps with inflammatory muscle wasting diseases such as polymyositis and dermatomyositis.

BFR is also beneficial for patients who have suffered severe musculoskeletal trauma (Read Article) and women with risk factors for symptomatic knee osteoarthritis


Blood-Flow Restriction Training

Blood-flow restriction training is used worldwide by the major league and collegiate sports teams, rehabilitation centers, and an extensive network of Personalized BFR research facilities. BFR help patients to make greater strength training gains while lifting lighter loads, thereby reducing the overall stress placed on the limb. It is used to support surgical or injury recovery and target muscle weakness.




BFR Effects on Pain:

One of the most clinically relevant effects of BFR is its ability to manipulate pain. The effects of BFR on pain have been shown in healthy individuals, patients with knee pain, and patients rehabbing after surgery.

The mechanisms driving BFR’s effects on analgesia may involve endogenous opioid release and conditioned pain modulation.

Recent evidence has demonstrated that BFR improves Tendon cross-sectional, reduces Bone loss, has a positive effect on the vasculature, and stimulates improvements in blood flow.

Spinal Traction



The comprehensive cervical and lumbar spine therapy program at Physical Therapy Doctors targets the ROOT CAUSE of pain with mechanical traction with graduated static, intermittent, and cyclic tension options. A pain relief treatment effective in:

  • Reduces Disc Pressure

  • Relieves Nerve Root Compression

  • Improves Blood Flow

  • Relaxes Muscles

  • Mobilizing the muscles, ligaments, and joints

  • Restore function.
