What Is Laser Therapy?
Let’s start with the basics. What is laser therapy?
Laser therapy is a surgery-free, drug-free way to relieve pain and speed up your body’s natural healing process. People who have acute pain and chronic pain can both benefit from laser therapy.
Laser therapy can reduce pain and inflammation. Especially for conditions such as low back pain, tendonitis, and plantar fasciitis.
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.
It also promotes your muscles, joints, and bones to heal as well. You can benefit from laser treatment before or after having surgery. In some cases, it can even prevent surgery altogether.
The science behind laser therapy is incredible. The laser impacts how your cells work. Basically, the cells absorb the light and begin positive changes. When damaged cells absorb the light, they become supercharged and their healing process accelerates, which means you’ll heal even faster.
Laser therapy is cleared by the FDA. As a matter of fact, 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 relying on drugs.
