Laser Therapy Medical Treatment

Laser therapy is a medical treatment that uses specific wavelengths of light to create therapeutic effects. Laser Therapy is a non-invasive, safe, and effective treatment modality. Laser therapy treatment is used to treat acute and chronic injuries as well as post-activity recovery. It is also used to help delay or postpone surgeries. Laser therapy has been proven helpful for recovery post surgery.

 

Laser therapy is used to treat lots of different conditions as it reduces pain, muscle spasms, inflammation and improves range of motion. It also increases tissue regeneration which helps patients heal faster through photo-bio-stimulation.

 

Laser therapy helps relax the muscles and increases blood circulation. Laser therapy creates little to no sensation or a gentle and soothing warmth feeling. A massage ball treatment head meets the skin and delivers a “laser massage”.

 

Laser therapy is also known for its fast treatment. Treatments are quick, usually 5-10 minutes depending on size and severity of the trauma. Laser therapy provides you with a safe and effective alternative to drugs. Most patients see results within 3 to 5 treatments.
