Laser And Physical Therapy

Laser therapy is often with other kinds of therapy, especially physical therapy. In fact, using both together makes treatment even more effective.

Think of the two as working double time to help you recover and get back to enjoying the things you love.

The purpose of laser therapy is to reduce pain and heal damaged tissue. PT, on the other hand, aims to restore your function while managing pain. It focuses on strengthening muscles that stabilize the body.

Speeding up your healing with laser therapy can help you reach your PT goals quicker than you would by doing one or the other.

Basically, the laser helps you advance through the different stages of healing. It stimulates cells to quickly reduce pain, which means you’re able to move easier. More importantly, it provides you with an excellent opportunity early on to progress your exercise program. You’re able to do more than you normally would due to pain.

Studies have found that combining laser and physical therapy heals different injuries throughout the body. The results are consistent and impressive. For example, they show significant improvements in pain, range of motion, and function. Not only that, they even found significant differences after 3 and 6 months as well.
