Frederick, who has treated several L.A. Clippers basketball players, said that patients often come to him for help when they cannot find any other options to help heal their pain. Different wavelengths and power outlets can treat a variety of injuries, from diabetic ulcers to arthritis and acute injuries.
"I've seen patients who have arthritis so bad that it's bone-on-bone with no cartilage whatsoever," said Frederick. "They will convince me to try and treat them, and I tell them they're probably not going to see any improvements, but there are several who are now at the gym, in the garden, or taking care of their grandkids."
Frederick said the dramatic results, even now, can still sometimes surprise him but warns there are a lot of misconceptions.
"It's a Wild West out there with laser technology," said Frederick. "You're going to see a lot of this used in the future. ...There is an efficacy in this device that just needs a proper amount of energy and delivery system. And we've seen some pretty phenomenal results."
