I am 6 months out from my laser treatment at OrthoLaser and I am still pain free! I have tried so many different things to help with my back pain but nothing has helped it like OrthoLaser. After a few sessions I started to notice improvement in my pain level and by the end of my 10th session I was experiencing no more back pain. I highly recommend! Also, I found the office and staff to be super safe with COVID protocols.

My husband had Ortho Lazer treatments before and after hi recent shoulder surgery. It was great ! He has had shoulder surgery before and this time there was almost no real swelling after just a few days. the sessions afterwards left him with little pain at all. We would highly recommend this to anyone having major surgery. Leann And Kerry were Great. Thanks Again ! Dave & Patty

I was diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel in February 2021. My options were surgery or a series of laser treatments. I decided to try the laser treatments because surgery did not appeal to me. I had a total of 10 laser treatments at OrthoLazer on Monroe Ave with Kory. With each treatment I was greeted pleasantly by Shani at the front desk and I was brought back efficiently to the patient care room by Kory. She explained how the laser works and provided me with goggles to protect my eyes. The treatments were painless and quick. The office is kept very clean and after only a few treatments my pain level went from a 9/10 to a 4/10. By my final treatment I am overjoyed to share that I no longer have the pain and numbness in my hand and I am able to work with no downtime. I highly recommend this office!

The staf LeeAnn and Kerri are very knowledgeable, kind and compassionate. The laser treatments they provided me significantly improved the swelling, bruising and pain in my right leg following a total knee replacement. The incision also healed quickly and nicely. I highly recommend the OrthoLazer Center in Portsmouth to help with the pain and recovery with a total knee replacement.

I had great relief on my shoulder and bicep and working with Leanne was a pleasure.. I would recommend this this facility to anyone looking for help recuperating from an injury. I believe it helped with the swelling and range of motion and I got great results, Thank you Leeann

Recent rotator cuff surgery had me seek pain relief and healing benefits at OrthoLazer Portsmouth. The process and results did not disappoint. I believe the two pre-op visits followed by 6 post-op visits to OrthoLazer greatly reduced the pain/inflammation in my shoulder - so much so, that I did not need to take prescription meds and stopped over-the-counter pain relievers (ibuprofen/acetaminophen) after 7 days. LeeAnn and Kerri run a friendly, on-time center with Covid precautions in place. Thank you to Dr. Noerdlinger (surgeon) and Ortholazer!

I suffered a traumatic injury to my hand due to a dog bite, which resulted in a displaced fracture of my 4th metacarpal and several lacerations. Surgery was recommended by the ER doctor and the orthopedic surgeon I was referred to, however I opted to try laser therapy instead. I can honestly say that I was completely pain-free throughout my entire treatment plan, which was amazing. After the first session, my bruising and swelling had almost completely resolved. The lacerations healed well and there is minimal scarring. The laser also prevented any scar tissue from forming in the area of trauma which helped reduce any stiffness and tightness in the tendons. My doctor was blown away with my range of motion and that I could make a closed fist only 5 weeks out from my injury. It took almost half the time it should normally take to completely recover from a severe traumatic injury because of laser therapy. I couldn’t be happier that I was able to avoid surgery and retain full mobility and function of my dominant hand.

I had 10 visits for post-operative shoulder surgery healing. I added to this a knee treatment for a mildly torn knee meniscus. They were accommodative enough to provide both treatments during the same visits. My shoulder is healing ahead of schedule and my knee pain is essentially gone - meaning I will likely NOT require surgery! "nuf said"...

I under went shoulder and bicep surgery approximately one month ago. I received both pre-operative and post- operative sessions with ortholazer. I believe these sessions, along with pt, have aided significantly in my pain reduction.

I had a rotator cuff tear and was treated at OrthoLazer twice prior to my surgical procedure and for 3 weeks post op. I had little to no pain post surgery and minimal swelling. I would highly recommend this treatment for pain and inflammation. The staff is very courteous and accomodating. I would not hesitate to schedule more appointments if the need arises.

I was somewhat skeptical about this treatment at first but the outcome of a speedy recovery and little to no pain was worth trying. I went for my first 2 pre op visits where I met the wonderful staff members, Kerri and LeeAnn, who were always attentive, knowledgeable, professional and helpful. I had successful surgery a little over 3 weeks ago, by Dr. Noerdlinger, who was Excellent. I have had to use little to no pain medication and am recovering quickly. I have just completed my course of Lazer treatments and needless to say I have now become a huge “believer” in this treatment. I would highly recommend this to anyone that may be having any type of joint surgery and I Thank the Ortholazer staff for their expertise and caring.

The technician’s under the guidance of Erin were terrific. I was a bit of a sceptic at first but now I’m happy to say I can continue doing my daily walks of 3 miles and dancing with my grand babies. After 10 visits my knee is so much better. I’d recommend everyone to try this option of pain management. Thank you Dr Sigman #flowthefro

OrthoLaser helped with my chronic lower back pain. I was amazed after the first 3 or 4 visits at how much better I was feeling. After my finial visit my pain was reduced to almost nothing. This is the best my back has felt in 10 years. The staff is wonderful! Kind, caring and professional.

I wish I had taken a picture before I started my treatment so there could be a before and after picture - it’s crazy! I didn’t expect to see a physical difference in my knees but they look less swollen and my pain is significantly better.My workouts (mostly running and yoga) really damaged my knees. I felt pain walking up the stairs and would have to lean on the railing. I also had to alter my workouts because my knees were in so much pain. Now I can walk up the stairs with no problem, and can go back to my yoga classes without feeling pain.I didn’t feel relief until about my third treatment, which is normal. I am 26, and really happy I got this treatment right away. The entire staff is excellent. They all want to create the best treatment plan for you to heal.Highly recommend!! There really isn’t any place like it!

I did six sessions here starting two days post op from a meniscus surgery. I'm only two weeks out now and both my physical therapist and the surgeon's PA have said my swelling and range of motion are far ahead of what they expected. This is allowing me to progress through recovery at a faster pace so when me knee finishes healing I'll be able to return to an active lifestyle earlier. The staff is also great, they make the visits entertaining and you can tell they care. When I had my last session it felt like saying goodbye to friends.

I am very happy with their services. They were very professional and attentive to ensure that I had a pain free recovery after having shoulder surgery. I would strongly recommend their facility for Ortho Laser treatment to assist with a pain free recovery from any joint surgery.

For over 3 years I have had chronic shoulder pain due to bursitis and tendinosis. Over the years I had several cortisone injections as treatment and many, many months of PT but the pain remained. After 4 visits in the care of the outrageously attentive and professional staff at OrthoLazer I began to feel noticeable improvement. Upon completion of a full series of 10 appointments my shoulder improved to the point where I am pain free while at rest, and dramatically better even while exercising. I also have experienced a big improvement in my range of motion and flexibility. I still don't understand exactly how their magic red light works, but for me it really did produce a marked improvement.

While most soft tissue pain resolves in time, my hip pain has lasted for many years. I thought I would need a more invasive treatment like injections or surgery. Although I was skeptical, halfway through my laser sessions the pain started to subside. I can honestly admit after completing my treatment I am 85% improved. This was achieved with just the laser. I did not need any medications, special exercises or diet changes. The staff is very knowledgeable and professional. They made me feel that my alleviating my pain was their most important objective. Thanks to Ortholazer I am fully functional with a much improved quality of life.

Everyday I get to come to see Katy & Amanda at OrthoLazer is a good day! I tried physical therapy alone for my issue in the past with no results. Now I can say that OrthoLazer is the real deal as I am seeing great improvements. My pain has been dramatically decreased and range of motion fully restored. I highly recommend the staff as they will treat you right.

I loved it. This laser treatment really worked great on my back. Amanda and Katy are awesome staff, I saw Amanda most of the time and she was very nice, knowledgeable let me know everything about it before we started and when we did she made sure I was comfortable and answered any questions I had. Thank you Amanda for such a great experience at ortho laser

I was referred to this office by my Doctor. Katy and Amanda were very friendly, courteous and professional throughout my sessions. They really care about what they do and sought regular feedback to make any necessary changes to ensure my overall experience was positive. I would highly recommend them.

I have had back issues for as long as I can remember. I’ve tried so many different things to help with the pain. OrthoLazer has been a huge blessing and has helped me feel so much relief! I can’t recommend it enough! It is quick, easy and the best part is that you feel ABSOLUTELY NO PAIN while being treated! The staff is amazing and they go above and beyond to make sure things are clean and ready to go!! Don’t wait! Take care of the pain and feel better now!

This Lazer treatment works. I had injured soft tissue around a hip implant that would not heal. I endured serious pain by the end of each day. I signed up for 10 treatments and by the third treatment the pain started to subside. By the sixth I felt remarkably better. 10 treatments did the trick as I am pain free today and it has been one month since the final treatment. Katy and Amanda are efficient and professional

Amanda and Katy are great! I’m so grateful for OrthoLazer. I completed 10 sessions over about a months time. I have been 1 year post-op on my hip and I have experienced so many benefits from this. OrthoLazer has dramatically reduced my pain, increased my range of motion, and has led to less stiffness overall! I highly recommend OrthoLazer.

Very happy with my results. I was having issues with my hip and delayed treatment because I thought I would need a cortisone injection which scared me. I was referred to this office for a fairly new treatment regime. Went from a 7 or 8 on pain scale to a 1 within the first 2 visits. No pain at all with laser treatments...there is no skin contact...even if the wand is used, there is minimal pressure. Katie and Amanda are very knowledgeable and if they aren't sure of something, they are diligent in finding the answers. I am very happy with my results. I highly recommend this treatment.

I developed pain in my tibia after training for a half marathon, likely a shin splint or stress response. I was trying to do the usual remedies for this situation but I still had pain and I work in a hospital on my feet all day. Dr. Sigman advised me to try Ortho Lazer to reduce pain more efficiently and quickly. After 2 treatments I was able to bear weight without pain and the day after my 5th treatment I stood in the operating room working for 12 hours straight without sitting and my shin didn’t hurt at all!!! I would recommend this treatment for anyone with my condition, or anyone suffering from a painful orthopedic condition because it truly worked wonders for me!!

After 10 months of intense back pain and bilateral sciatica, that dictated my way of life, booked for spinal cortisone injections I researched alternative treatments. The staff courteous and all my questions and concerns addressed. I never had to wait for my appointment. After two sessions, the sciatica was gone except for a few twinges here and there. By fifth visit a dull backache. I am now at visit 9 pain free with one treatment left.

Middle aged Ladies and Gentleman who LOVE to stay active with sports and exercise while grinding through the agony of those bumps, bruises and aches, just because you don’t want your spouse to know it “may be time to hang em’ up” or the fear of making an appointment to see the doctor.....this post is for you!OrthoLazer may just be the modern fountain of youth! I was battling reoccurring swelling/pain in one knee. It would show up every 4-6wks like clockwork and take a solid 2 weeks to go away. 2 weeks of constant aspirin, ice, rest. My love for sports would always put me right back into the same cycle I’m sure many 40 year olds face all too often. I heard about OrthoLazer from a friend who had some great success with knee pain he was dealing with too. I made the appointment the next day. The process could not have been any simpler! Staff was amazing as they walk you through a brief 6-8min consult, take you into a room where you’re zapped with a laser (10min’ish) that you can’t even tell is on, and in 20min you are back on your way. I couldn’t squat down due to the swelling in my knee and after the 2nd treatment (48hrs- I went back to back days) I had full range of motion. I completed 6 total treatments and was back pitching after the 4th treatment. This was back in Aug and here I am in Feb after playing summer baseball, fall soccer and some basketball during the winter, completely pain free and most importantly free from that vicious cycle that I had come accustomed to.BEST bang for your buck in terms of non invasive medical treatment options in my opinion. Stop putting up with the pain and try cold laser- IT WORKS!!!

Placing this review as a local physician based on a patients experience - I referred a patient with chronic Achilles tendonitis unresolved for several years in duration (this patient had seen multiple physicians who attempted several modalities and performed many tests but did not reduce his symptoms). Upon my evaluation I discussed several options including Ortho Lazer. I reached out to Angel and from there things were set up swiftly and easily. Upon follow up (patient was picking up a pair of custom orthotics) he expressed to me how much his symptoms have been improving in just a few sessions and how confident he was in this treatment so far. It's these kinds of results that will make it easy for me to refer more here. Thanks for the help and hopefully many more to come!

I have suffered from sciatica back pain for years. I was referred by a friend who experienced amazing results and relief with Dr. Ashraf at Ortholazer. From just 3 treatments, I already notice a huge difference in my pain level! I highly recommend ortholazer, and also, the staff is very knowledgeable and professional! Thank you Dr. Ashraf!!!!!!

I have had left scapula pain for about 2 years. I have done meds and cortisone injections with minimally relief. I started my laser therapy treatment and pain has reduce immensely. Dr. Ashraf and his staff are every informative and I would highly recommend this treatment if you are looking for a non surgical route or have needle phobia.

It works! I've known Dr. Sigman for many years and admire his efforts to offer non opioid alternatives to treating chronic pain. Whether post surgery, arthritis or other reasons to treat your pain....give Ortho Lazer a try. I have arthritis in my hip and it definitely effects my quality of life. Not quite ready to do hip replacement. After 10 sessions, my pain is virtually gone. The staff at Ortho Lazer is friendly, helpful and professional. Keep up the good work, and thank you!

Staff is very friendly and this is no reflection on them whatsoever. Generally, I’m skeptical, but when your doctor officially diagnoses you with “so basically your kneecap sucks” and you’ve been experiencing pain, a total change in your routine and realize you’ve lost muscle because you're overcompensating and you’re scared, you’ll try anything. He insisted at my 6 week follow up, I’d be hugging him. Immediately after being marched into a side room, scheduling all 10 treatments and paying $600 upfront, it didn’t feel right. I saw the doctors name all over the office...suddenly “I’m a surgeon and I’m not recommending surgery that’s how much I believe in this this” all made sense. The doctor owns the “practice” which isn’t covered by insurance and rightfully so...his success stories he touted in his MD office were from a 4 month trial of this cold laser therapy and one woman who was able to run marathons again. By the time I started treatments, my knee wasn’t swollen and the pain had subsided, but my back went out and they approved treatment on my back. I haven’t experienced full relief since the treatments. I also started physical therapy, chiropractor, stretching, more Advil than I’d like and rest. Maybe the treatment works in conjunction with other therapies... It’s not even the fact that I haven’t experienced relief that bothers me, it’s the doctors use of his position to push people into the treatment. Buyer beware.

I've had great results from my treatment at Ortho Laser.I was having hip pain that made it painful to walk and sleep at night.The first thing I noticed was less inflamation in my body.In the past I would have to get steriod injections when I had a lot of inflamation.After just a few laser treatments my hip was feeling so much better !Since I also have back problems, I asked to have my back added to my treatment plan.It didn't take long before I was finally pain free and in less time than anticipated.I'm so glad that I gave this a try.It's so nice to finally be able to do things without being in pain, as well as sleeping at night.I highly recommend Ortho Laser.It works and the staff is incredible !

If you’re not sure about Ortho Laser I encourage you to try it. The treatment is really quick, completely painless and very effective. There is one down side- it isn’t covered by insurance. However, I would note that what I achieved in three sessions would have taken much longer with conventional Physical Therapy. Overall, I saved money, time and returned to my life much sooner with the help of this treatment.

My experience with the Ortho Lazer has been great. I have severe knee problems and so far so good. I have recommended this treatment to my coworkers. I think this type of treatment should be covered by insurance because it helps heal your Ortho problems without opioids. Would highly recommend trying this because you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

I went to Ortho Lazer for an inflamed rotator cuff. Before my first treatment I could not lift my arm above my shoulder height. It was very weak and painful. I scheduled six treatments but my shoulder was much better after just three. I completed the six treatments in two weeks and my shoulder was completely pain free. It was amazing! I still need to work on building up strength but I can’t wait to try the laser on other aches and pains. I’m trying it next for my plantar fasciitis. I would definitely recommend this treatment to anyone with pain or an injury.

I had constant pain in my right knee. I was skeptical at first of Dr. Sigmans recommendation of Ortholaser therapy. But, Dr Sigman had performed surgery on my left knee and it feels great. So I gave the Lasertherapy a try. I wanted to try to avoid surgery in the right knee. I had 10 sessions of laser therapy.My knee feels great! I can sleep on my side and I no longer have constant pain upon moving! Dr. Sigman and staff are so well versed and knowledgeable.I trust their judgment profusely! I am thrilled!

Wonderful location, amazing staff as expected being operated by Dr. Sigman. I was a bit apprehensive as to how the treatment itself would work, not knowing truly HOW it works and having had such extensive knee surgery in March, but I trust Dr. Sigman with my life and I am not disappointed with the results after 10 sessions. My knee feels so much better. Thank you to everyone. I would absolutely return in the future if the need arose.~ Melissa S.

The results I got from the cold laser were nothing short of miraculous. By my 4th appointment, I felt close to 100 percent, and improved from there after every visit. I'm back at the gym working as I was before the injury, and couldn't be more pleased.

Great staff, very professional. Had heel and knee - TKR - treatment done. Knee pain seemed to have a higher reduction , heel pain not as much and may require tweaking the system for imptimprove. One issue is the sidewalk .easy access from street, not as easy from parking lot due to high curb which could be rectified easily . Overall satisfied with initial results.

Before I had my treatments I was in a lot on pain and after long drives my knee was very stiff.I wore a brace all the time to control the pain. I have had only 6 treatments and I not longer have to ice every night and if I don’t wear my brace I can still get around with minor pain and there is not stiffness. It’s great to also know I don’t need cortisone to get some relief from the pain

The decrease in the level of pain in my hip is amazing and I’m only 2/3 of the way through my treatments! I no longer suffer with constant discomfort and pain from arthritis in that joint. The best part is that I can lie on my left side again so I am sleeping much better!

I sprained my ankle on October 23rd. I started Laser treatments at Ortho Lazer the next day. After the third treatment, my swelling has diminished. It's a week later and I am 80% pain free! Cold Laser Therapy is amazing!
