Laser With Other Treatments

Using Laser With Other Treatments

One of the biggest benefits of laser therapy is that it can be used with other kinds of treatment to reduce your pain.

For starters, laser therapy works very well with treatments that promote tissue repair. This can include modalities like ultrasound and electrical stimulation.

When it comes to treating acute injuries, there’s a balance between identifying where you are in the healing process, how much pain you’re in, and increasing your activity levels accordingly.

Typical treatment plans initially aim to control symptoms of pain and inflammation, and then shift to restoring function and range of motion later down the line. In these cases, relief isn’t immediate because you’re only masking the symptoms. The only way to effectively reduce pain is by addressing the root cause of the problem.

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.
