    A question was submitted by an attendee of our Laser Therapy webinar:

    If you are treating lumbar muscles with laser therapy, how concerned should one be about inadvertantly lasering the underlying kidneys?

    The light is focused and concentrated to a distance, but definitely becomes less concentrated once it starts passing through the different layers of tissue to the point where the light isn’t being concentrated anymore.  Other organs would get some light exposure, but not enough that you should worry.
