Feel The Effects Of Laser Therapy

Feel The Effects Of Laser Therapy

Typically, most people see results in as little as 3 to 5 sessions. How quickly you feel the effects of laser therapy will depend on a few factors.

For starters, some areas of the body may take a bit longer based on their size and location. The damaged tissue may be deeper under your skin, or a larger area to cover.

Injuries deep in the buttocks and hip, for example, may not be noticed as quickly compared to a finger or toe injury. This is because the laser light has to travel through a lot more muscle and tissue in order to reach the damaged cells and start the healing process.

The complexity of your injury, and how long your injury has gone untreated, can play a role as well.

For the most part, people experience a warming, therapeutic feeling immediately after treatment. They often report feeling a reduction in pain as well. These effects can last up to 18 hours after treatment.

It’s probably no surprise to hear that consistency is the key if you want to see noticeable changes in your symptoms. The most effective approach is to receive a series of treatments at least 3 times a week.

The benefits of laser therapy are cumulative, meaning they add up from one treatment to the next. As you receive laser therapy treatments, the healing processes combine so you may feel the maximum effect.

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. Not to mention, It’s cleared by the FDA.

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.
