How Does Laser Therapy Work?
Treatments are performed at Coast Chiropractic Centers by positioning the laser hand-piece approx. 1/2” directly above the skin and surrounding the area of injury and pain with the laser treatment beam. Biological effects are Anti-Inflammation, Anti-Pain (analgesic), Accelerated Tissue Repair and Cell Growth, Improved Vascular Activity.
Have You Had Laser Therapy Before and It Didn’t Seem to Make Much of a Difference?
It is likely that you’ve been treated with a Class 3 laser. Class 3 laser therapy units deliver 1–2 watts and cost around $10,000 to $12,000. At Coast Chiropractic, we use DIOWAVE Deep Penetrating Lasers, which are Class 4 laser therapy units. It delivers up to 60 watts and typically costs around $35,000 for a unit. If you’ve had laser therapy before and it didn’t seem to make much of a difference, trying a deeper penetrating laser therapy may be a good next step. Coast Chiropractic Centers offer high-tech deep penetrating laser treatment.
Can You Feel Laser Therapy?
In sharp contrast to “Cold Lasers” (LLLT or LOW-Level Light Therapy) which provides no feeling or sensation, patients FEEL each DIOWAVE Deep Penetrating Laser Therapy treatment, as it works to provide laser light energy deep into the body to reach damaged cells and tissues. Results are typically faster than many other therapeutic modalities and patients often report signs of improvement after the first or second treatment.
Reduce Inflammation and Swelling with Laser Therapy
Both acute and chronic injuries respond well to the DIOWAVE Deep Penetrating Laser Therapy treatment. Inflammation and swelling are quickly reduced to allow a greater range of motion in the affected area. This helps to regain activity and mobility while reducing scar tissue and adhesions which can slow recovery and healing. Sick and injured tissues are restored to optimal strength and vitality, providing greater functionality and preventing re-injury. Dr. Harcourt will develop a specific treatment approach for you.

High-Quality Diode Technology
Coast Chiropractic Centers in Fort Myers, Florida has a Higher Power for Larger Dosages of Therapeutic Energy Providing 60 watts of power, the Diowave Class IV Laser can deliver up to 1,500 times more energy than other therapy lasers. More power equates to deeper penetration, faster treatment times and delivery of the proper therapeutic dosage, an enhanced ability to treat difficult conditions, and ultimately better clinical outcomes.
Optimal 980nm Single Wavelength
Deeper Penetration into the Body Diowave Lasers provide a Single Wavelength of 980nm for maximum penetration. Penetration is paramount in order to stimulate deep musculoskeletal, vascular, lymphatic, and neurological structures. Because 65% of laser energy is absorbed in the skin and subcutaneous tissue layers, the higher wavelength of 980nm is proven to be most effective due to its low melanin, low water, low hemoglobin absorption rates, with the result of an optimal wavelength for stimulating tissue at greater depths of penetration.
