Limit Activities After Laser Therapy

Do You Have To Limit Activities After Laser Therapy?

Unlike recovery after a surgery, you will not have to limit your activities after laser therapy treatments. In fact, it’s beneficial to stay moving after laser therapy.

Laser therapy makes it easier to return to daily tasks and activities that were once difficult or too painful to do.

Treatment sessions are quick, and the therapeutic effects can continue for up to 18 hours. People often feel their best right after their sessions, like how they used to before their pain or injury.

It can be tempting to take advantage of this newfound relief, like doing a bunch of housework or walking around the zoo with your grandchildren for a few hours. I fully encourage you to lean into getting up and being active.

Your body is meant to move, and you would actually be doing yourself a disservice by sitting still and avoiding movement.

It’s important not to be overly ambitious and push your limits too far, though. Get moving when you can, and keep an eye on your pain. Being consistent with laser treatments and staying active is the best recommendation I can make for you to reach full recovery.

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 in pain for just a few days or for a few months. Laser therapy can help get you back to feeling like yourself again.

Laser therapy improves the body’s natural healing process. As a result, it helps your body use its own healing powers by starting a series of healing responses.
