Use of the laser treatment with Dr. Kraft and his staff has been quite efficient. It reduces the inflammation and pain associated with it, making my life much more bearable. I highly recommend him for anybody seeking serious pain relief.

I went to Dr. Kraft when I aggravated an old injury of 4 torn discs. After just 4 treatments my back felt significantly better. I was able to play tennis with no pain after 6 treatments.

Dr. Kraft has a kind way of listening to and understanding your pain. He's input has helped my physical therapist know how to treat me. For me personally, the lasering is very effective. His staff is responsive and considerate.

I have spinal stenosis, sciatica, and bone spurs. Going through an epidural is not easy due to having anesthesia, and side effects such as blood pressure going up too high and remaining that way for 3 months, pain is reduced for a week or so before it comes back. This laser treatment from Dr Kraft is the only method that has helped me. I combine 10 min of stretching in the a.m. and p.m. and feel great. I had to go through 15 treatments in the very beginning year then went on maintenance for just 3 treatments 6 months later. Its an easy treatment just 20 minutes at a time while sitting down and just resting. No anesthesia or discomfort what so ever.

I couldn't be happier with my service and treatment with LaserMD. Dr. Kraft has really helped get rid of my arthritis pain. My range of motion in treated joints is better than it has been in 10+ years!

Catie Saralegui – Jun 12, 2020
I have had lower back trouble for almost 5 years. Unbearably painful. I have had 18 epidurals and even radial frequency ablation (burning of the nerve endings), all to no avail. After 3 treatments with Dr Kraft, my pain decreased from a 9 before pain meds to a 6. Within 5 more treatments, I had ZERO back pain and no more pain meds!!!!
