How Long Is Laser Therapy Treatment?

Laser therapy treatments can last anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes. The total number of treatments needed to recover is typically around 6-12. Both of these depend on a few factors, which will be decided by your physical therapist.

During your first treatment, the therapist will take a look at your injury and determine which protocol would be most beneficial. After the first 4 sessions, or the induction phase, the therapist will evaluate your progress.

Your progress will determine the next phase of your treatment. For acute injuries, you may only need 2 or 3 more treatments. For chronic injuries, you may need another 6-12 treatments. It’s important to remember that the longer you have been in pain, the more treatment that may be needed before it becomes fully healed.

Improve With Laser Therapy

Here at Borja PT, we use the Lightforce FXi Laser. It’s a quick and easy way to improve your pain. Plus, you’ll feel the effects even after your treatment. It’s cleared by the FDA and adheres to strict standards.

The purpose of laser therapy is to reduce pain. Whether you’ve been experiencing pain for a few days or just a few months. Laser therapy improves the body’s healing process through cellular activity. As a result, it helps your body use its own healing powers by starting a series of healing responses.

It can reduce pain and inflammation. Especially for conditions such as low back pain, tendonitis, and plantar fasciitis. It also promotes your muscles and bones to heal as well. You can benefit from laser therapy before or after having surgery. As a matter of fact, it can even prevent surgery altogether.

All laser therapy treatments are administered by certified staff members who have completed advanced courses and training.
