has anybody heard of it or tried it? uses an infrared laser for treatment. both my inlaws swear by it (were not treated for tennis elbow, but for sciatica). seems it's only available in south carolina.

That South Carolina clinic has a great marketing campaign and tremendous upside on profits. Lots of people have aches and pains that figure a la$er, being such a great technology, ought to do something of benefit.

Unfortunately, little can be expected medically from the use of a la$er for the treatment of tennis elbow. (Aside from having a lighter wallet your elbow will have to strain to lift.)

My chiropractor always uses laser on me each time I come. The first time I tried it, I thought it did some wonders. But from the second time onward, I did not see any improvement.

But he charges my insurance company $120 for 5 minutes of that "therapy".

is your chiropractor using an infrared laser? just wondering.

He uses a much more powerful laser. I bet it could lower frequency down to the infrared range, though. Perhaps even a combination of different wavelengths.
