Laser Light Therapy for Wound Care

Laser Light Therapy has been around for 100’s of years. This modality is used to treat many acute, subacute and chronic conditions. Wound care is just one of the many conditions laser Light therapy can be used to help accelerate healing.

Laser Light Therapy is used at a low level of 10 to 15 watts for 3 to 5 min depending on the size of wound. Also, a non-contact laser head is used to avoid burns or contamination. The physiologic benefit of laser light is deep cellular changes, elastin production and increased circulation in the wound bed. The physiological benefit provides a faster healing process resulting in fewer visits, less pain and less money spent.

Many research articles have proven how laser light therapy improves healing time, including Journal of Nursing and International Wound Journal. These articles provide evidence base research.

Our clinic provides low and high laser light therapy for all types of wounds. We also provide same day services for our patients. Our clinic can be reaches at 4052652255 and fax 4052652215.

Laser Light and Lymphedema.

The lymph system is a network of vessels, tissue, and organs that pull lymph fluid through the body and back into the bloodstream. Lymphedema occurs when there is damage or a blockage to the lymph system allowing the fluid to fill the extremity resulting in increased size, pain and loss of function. The damage or blockage can be from a surgical procedure such as cancer tumor or lymph node removal, radiation to the lymph nodes, trauma such as a car wreck or excessive obesity. from Treatments consist of compression garments, sequential pumps, lymphatic massage and laser light therapy.

Laser light therapy use laser light heat to re-open the flow of the lymphatic system and increase the flow of the lymph fluid. It also increases blood flow to the area. If history of cancer, laser light can be utilized with oncologist approval. This treatment is FDA cleared and provides patients a non-invasive, non-pharmacological alternative.

Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) or Dizziness

Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) or dizziness is loose calcium particles in the inner ear. The loose particles create an illusion of vertigo when changing head positions causing dysequilibrium and off balance feeling. BPPV can be very debilitating resulting in dizziness, nausea, vomiting and falls.

Benign Proximal Positional Vertigo can usually be treated and corrected in one to three visits allowing patients complete recovery. Our staff completes an evaluation including inner ear test to determine which ear is affected and your treatment with plan of care is quickly stated.

This picture of a patient with positive BPPV shows just how severe this condition can be. Please call our office at 4052652255 or fax referral 4052652251 for an appointment. Physician referral is not needed.


Debridement is a procedure to remove unwanted tissue. Unwanted tissue can be necrotic (dead), proud flesh and / or fatty tissue. There are several types of debridement procedures and they include:

Nonsurgical debridement – using medication and or soft dressings to debride unwanted tissue.

Sharps debridement – using forceps, scissors and / or scalpel to remove unwanted tissue.

Autolytic debridement – dressing that provides non – breathable closure over the wound allowing temperature and moisture to remove unwanted tissue.

Surgical debridement – sedated or non-sedated sharp debridement either superficial or deep tissue.

Debridement type is up to your wound care provider, physician and you. Wound debridement is necessary for wound progression and healing. Each provider is different in the type of debridement used in the healing process. Our team has a consistent approach to choosing debridement type that includes:

  • Pain tolerance
  • Size of the area needing debridement
  • How easy or difficult the unwanted tissue is to remove

Tissue debridement is necessary for all wound progression and healing.
