How Many Laser Treatments Will You Need?
When it comes to your recovery, the nature of your condition and how well you respond to treatment will determine how many laser therapy sessions will be needed.
During your first treatment session, we will take a look at your injury and determine which protocol would be most beneficial to you.
We will reassess your injury after the first 4 treatment sessions. This is what we like to call the induction phase. It gives us a good idea of how well you’re responding to the treatment protocol, and whether modifications need to be made or not.
Your progress will determine the next phase of your treatment.
For acute injuries, you may only need 2 or 3 more treatments. We call this the acute maintenance phase. For more long-standing, chronic injuries, you may need another 6-12 treatments, which we refer to as the chronic maintenance phase.
It’s important to remember that the longer you have been in pain, the more treatment may be needed before it becomes fully healed.
Typically, we find people have the best results when they combine laser therapy and physical therapy together. With consistency, most start seeing results faster than those using laser therapy alone.
Incorporating laser therapy into your recovery is a great way to accelerate the healing process and get out of pain sooner. Not to mention, it will help you get back to enjoying the things you love doing quicker too.
Improve With Laser Therapy
Here at Borja PT, we use the Lightforce FXi Class IV Laser. The purpose of laser therapy is to reduce pain and inflammation. Whether you’ve been experiencing pain for just a few days or for a few months. Laser therapy improves the body’s natural healing process through cellular activity. As a result, it helps your body use its own healing powers by starting a series of healing responses.
