Diowave Laser Q & A

What is Diowave?

Diowave is an advanced medical tool that repairs diseased or damaged tissue at the cellular level. Dr. Ahmad and the team at The Medical Dock use the Diowave to accelerate your body’s natural healing powers, so you feel better faster.


How does Diowave work?

The laser energy produced by the Diowave targets the mitochondria in your cells to stimulate the production of ATP, DNA, and RNA, and promote stem cell activity. This activity increases the regeneration of your cells by 25 to 75%. The result is pain relief, less swelling and inflammation, decreased scar tissue and better circulation.

What conditions can Diowave treat?

Dr. Ahmad and the team at The Medical Dock may recommend Diowave laser therapy for a wide range of pain conditions. Some of the most common conditions that benefit from the Diowave include:

  • Joint injury
  • Connective tissue damage
  • Skin conditions
  • Neurological injuries
  • Inflammatory conditions
  • Muscle injury
  • Jaw pain
  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain

Diowave laser therapy is also well suited for those who’ve had back surgery or can’t receive spinal decompression. Dr. Ahmad also uses Diowave laser therapy to treat toenail fungus.

What can I expect during Diowave laser therapy?

Treatment with Diowave laser therapy at The Medical Dock is painless and quick. During your laser therapy session, you may feel a soothing warmth as your specialist places the laser handpiece over your problem area. You may notice a reduction in muscle tension and tightness, as well as an improvement in function after your session.

There’s no downtime following Diowave laser therapy, so you can go right back to your usual activities after treatment. However, Dr. Ahmad may suggest modifications to your activity to ensure you get the best results from treatment.

You may need more than one session with the Diowave laser to get the results you’re looking for. The number of treatments you need depends on the underlying need for therapy and the severity of your condition. While you may need as many as 5-12 treatments to get the best results, you may notice a marked improvement within a few treatments.
