How Long Is Laser Therapy Treatment?

The length of each laser therapy treatment will depend on two things: your injury and the right protocol for the injury.

During your first visit, your injury will be evaluated. We will determine which protocol best fits your condition. Then, we will create a treatment plan specific to you.

Most laser therapy treatments can last anywhere from 3-10 minutes long. The treatments vary depending on the size and acuteness of the area.

Typically, the larger, deeper, and more complex the area, the longer the treatment time.

For example, treatment on your finger may be shorter than treatment on your hip joint because the light has to travel deeper and cover a larger area.

Unlike the broad range of wavelengths in white light, laser light contains one single wavelength. Researchers have studied to see how the laser light penetrates and is absorbed by musculoskeletal tissue and determined the ideal wavelength needed to impact and energize the body.

In other words, class IV lasers deliver a high amount of energy in a small amount of time. This means the light will have a profound effect on reducing your pain within minutes.

We’re able to deliver a therapeutic dosage quickly and effectively. Saving you time and money sounds pretty great, right?
