How Many Treatments Are Needed?
The number of treatments will depend on the chronicity and the extent of the pathology involved. Based on the genetic makeup of the cells, an individual’s response to LILT will vary to some degree.
Acute (new) injuries heal much faster and often achieving great results in just 4-7 sessions in one-two weeks.
Injuries and conditions that have been present for over a month to 6 months require longer treatment, typically 18-25 sessions over 6-8 weeks.
Chronic conditions (those present for a year or more) will typically heal slower and may require 3-4 months of treatment for good resolution (i.e. for lumbar or cervical disc/stenosis conditions and arthritic conditions).
The severity of the injury and the age of the patient also factor in to number of treatments required.
What is the Cost of Treatment?
We try to make cost as affordable to patients as possible and feel we have a fair fee schedule for the Colorado Springs market area.
Cost depends on how long each treatment takes. Larger body areas require longer treatment times. Other factors are body type, age and skin pigmentation.
Cost per treatment generally ranges from $40-90 a session depending on what is being treated.
Nature of treatment and cost will all be discussed with each person during their laser therapy consultation. Consultations are $40. We encourage people to bring any imaging studies to their consultation, especially in chronic cases.
