What Is Laser Therapy?

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 after treatment. That means you will continue healing even after you get home.

What Is Laser Therapy

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

Laser therapy is cleared by the FDA. For instance, the Military, professional sports teams, healthcare professionals, and more, all use laser therapy. Here at Borja Physical Therapy, we use the Lightforce FXi Laser. It’s a great way to improve your pain without being invasive. Plus, you’ll continue to feel the effects even after your treatment.

The science behind laser therapy is fascinating. The laser impacts how the body’s cells work. Basically, the cells absorb the light and begin positive changes. Light has the most benefit where it’s needed the most. Studies show that damaged cells respond more to laser light than healthy cells. When damaged cells absorb the light, they become supercharged and their healing process accelerates. This means you’ll recover even faster.
