Laser Therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light to treat painful and debilitating conditions. Laser Therapy works with your body's natural healing abilities, helping it heal injuries and acute pain. Treatments usually yield results within 1 to 3 treatments, with the average course of treatment being 7 to 10 sessions. It is a painless procedure lasting from 5-10 minutes. Temporary relief of pain, inflammation, and edema are often achieved after the first treatment.
5 benefits of laser therapy:
- Rapid pain relief with no known side effects
- Aids in the healing of sprains and strains
- Immediate repair of superficial injuries, such as wounds and ulcers
- Immediate improvement of local blood circulation
- Patients with chronic conditions (like back pain) experience huge, long-lasting relief, usually with only a few treatments
It is critical that once you start, you complete the course of treatments recommended by your doctor, or symptoms are likely to reoccur. Recovery of normal body function happens more quickly when inflammation is reduced. While the number of treatments required may vary depending on the condition's acuity, many patients experience lasting relief after only a couple of treatments.
