Laser Therapy With Other Treatments

Laser Therapy With Other Treatments

One of the benefits of laser therapy is that it can be used with other forms of treatment. Generally, laser therapy works well with modalities that promote tissue repair. This can include things like ultrasound and electrical stimulation. Treating acute injuries is a balance between identifying your current stage of healing, how much pain you’re in, and increasing activity levels accordingly.

Typically, most treatments focus on controlling symptoms of inflammation and pain. In these cases, relief isn’t immediate, and they usually restore function and range of motion later down the line. That means you’re left in pain longer until that time, too.

Using laser alongside these forms of treatment, however, can help reach both of these goals earlier. Laser therapy targets damaged cells and energizes them. Then, they begin a series of healing processes in your body. The cells start healing faster than they normally would on their own. As a result, you get out of pain and you’re able to return to daily living.

Laser therapy is a great tool to help you heal fast. When combined with other treatments, you’ll benefit even more.
