Laser Therapy After Surgery

Laser therapy is a safe and effective way to relieve pain and swelling quickly. This is especially true for anyone recovering from surgery. Whether you’ve had an incision or a joint replacement, laser light can help you heal safely. It’s even safe for anyone with medical implants.

Laser light helps heal your muscles, tissues, and bones, which means you can benefit from treatment before or after having surgery. In some cases, it can even prevent surgery altogether.

As for healing after surgery, some of the most impressive results come from using laser therapy. In fact, there are protocols that have been created to deliver the right amount of light to the surgical site that is ideal for post-op recovery. Research shows that using these protocols can speed up how quickly your body heals. Not to mention, it even improves how well it heals too.

Most people begin feeling the therapeutic effects immediately after each treatment. They experience less pain and stiffness and are able to move better. This means your incisions, scar tissue, and the surrounding area all start healing fast, making your recovery less painful.
