Is Laser Therapy Safe?
Laser therapy is a safe and effective way to relieve pain without the use of surgery or drugs. People who have acute pain and chronic pain can both benefit. Treatment is fast, safe, and painless. Most patients feel a warm, soothing feeling during treatment. They may continue feeling effects, such as increased circulation and decreased pain and inflammation. In fact, most people see results in as little as 3 to 5 sessions. Beyond that, the effects can continue for up to 18 hours. That means you will continue healing even after you get home.
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. For instance, the Military, professional sports teams, healthcare professionals, and more, all use laser therapy.
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 LightForce Laser Therapy courses and training.
