Dr. Cruz had dislocated both shoulders on numerous occasions as a result of being a competitive water skier and rock climber in his younger days. Wanting to avoid surgery, he studied everything he could find on rehabilitating shoulders and now enjoys full use of his arms and shoulders. He uses what he learned for his own benefits to help his patients get the best results without injections or surgery.

How Laser Therapy Works
Laser therapy uses red and infrared light to penetrate deep into the tissues and stimulate a healing response at the cellular level. It has been clinically proven that specific frequencies of light reduces inflammation (swelling) which is usually the cause of most discomforts. These are low level or cold lasers so there is no cutting or burning, these are healing lasers. The best part is that the light actually stimulates cellular HEALING of the tissues, and not just temporary relief.
Often people can tell a difference after the first treatment, most will feel a noticeable improvement within 3 treatments, more may be needed for complete resolution depending on severity.
