Why Laser is Different?
Laser therapy is a medical breakthrough therapeutic device with unparalleled applications and outcomes. The Laser works by bathing injured and damaged tissues cells in light energy which results in an increase of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is the fuel source for cellular activity. This increase results in cell repair, normalized cellular function, and causes symptoms (PAIN) to disappear. The primary biological action of laser results from stimulation of cellular transport mechanisms in the mitochondria, cell membranes and epithelial tissues. This action causes the release of vasodilatation chemicals which increases microcirculation, increased supply of cellular nutrition which promotes tissue repair and remodeling (which means you heal faster).
My husband was recommended by our friends to go to Sarasota Sports Medicine for his tennis elbow in both arms from snapping at the gate at BMX. To start off this office is one of the most welcoming and warm staff. He saw Dr. Kaufman for a consult and discussed the best course of action. He has been getting the Deep Tissue Laser Therapy as well as the acupuncture. It has worked. He is feeling better and better every week and is very happy with the results. Sarasota Sports Medicine by far is the best in town.

I was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis on my left foot and given exercises by the orthopedist,. Four weeks later, without any improvement, I developed sciatica on the right side. In order to manage the pain, I took high doses of pain killers. This made me very fatigued and unable to function. I wasn’t able to do much except sleep. A friend recommended Dr Kaufman. I was reluctant because I’ve never been to a chiropractor. Luckily I made an appointment. Three sessions later I was pain free!! Dr Kaufman used a combination of body manipulation techniques and laser treatments. I’m again enjoying my life because of Dr Kaufman. Thank you !

"It's been almost 2 years since we met you and our lives changed. I'm so thankful the Lord led us to you! In 2010, the doctors restricted my husband from work, the only explanation they could give for his immense back pain was he exacerbated his old back injury and since he previously had 3 surgeries (a laminectomy, a discectomy, and a fusion) he was told there wasn't any medical procedure that could be done to relieve his pain. As the years progressed and the pain medication increased, I watched him deteriorate to a state of barely existing. He was unable to hold a conversation as he would fall asleep during it, he lost all mobility and needed a walker to help get around the house (a wheelchair would've been better but he couldn't sit because the pain radiated down his legs).
In 2013, at the age of only 47, he was prescribed a hospital bed which brought with it extra challenges and discouragement. Obviously, by this time, he had given up every activity & the only time he left the house was to go to the doctor once a month. Everyday living had to be altered; he lost his independence and had to depend on my for everything, even dressing.
As the result of a referral from my own personal chiropractor, we came to see you. Having your facility in a sports complex started us out on a great path mentally, it wasn't a sterile, cold environment. I'm sure you remember that first visit, as he was unable to sit or lay on the table so you made an accommodation for him where he was bale to stand for the laser treatment. As we left your office, a glimmer of hope followed and he actually felt a difference. We followed your recommended plan of laster treatments 3 times per week and I saw his quality of life return. He became less dependent on me and was able to move about on his own, he was even able to get rid of the hospital bed. What a day that was! As time progressed, he was able to have adjustments which then led to the exercise training. He was able to start driving again and he regained a sense of self-worth. His progress surprised his pain management doctor and they were able to dramatically reduce his pain medication.
It's been a long, hard journey but he now has a quality of life and is able to manage his pain. We are so thankful."
