Laser And Physical Therapy
Laser therapy is often used with other kinds of therapy, especially physical therapy. In fact, using both together makes treatment even more effective. Think of it as working double to recover and get back to enjoying the things you love.
The purpose of laser therapy is to reduce pain. Whether you’ve had pain for just a few days or a few months. Basically, the laser improves your body’s healing process through cellular activity. As a result, it helps your body use its own healing powers.
Laser therapy is a 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. 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.
Physical therapy focuses on controlling pain and improving function. This is done by strengthening muscle groups that are responsible for stability. Accelerating the body’s healing process from laser therapy can help reach this goal.
For example, some of the benefits of using laser and PT together include:
- An alternate solution to surgery
- Pre-surgery treatment
- Similarly, post-surgery treatment
- Significantly speeds up soft tissue healing
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.
