Laser therapy is used to treat acute and chronic conditions as well as post-activity recovery
How Does it Work?
Focused light is directed onto the area of your body that needs treatment. This stimulates a process called photobiomodulation. Your cells then absorb this light energy which helps them function more efficiently to repair tissue faster, reduce inflammation, and increase blood flow to the treated area. It’s a non-invasive way to promote healing.
Laser therapy is used to treat acute and chronic conditions as well as post-activity recovery. It is used as an alternative to prescription drugs that are used to treat pain and inflammation in your muscles, joints, and nerves.
Laser therapy is an effective way to help treat acute conditions such as sprains, sports injuries, and post-surgical recovery

Laser therapy helps reduce
post-exercise muscle soreness and allows athletes or individuals to recover faster from strenuous activities.

Most clinicians will encourage their patients to receive 2-3 treatments per week as the therapy is initiated. There is well-documented support that the benefits of laser therapy are cumulative, suggesting that plans for incorporating laser as part of a patient’s plan of care should involve early, frequent treatments that may be administered less frequently as the symptoms resolve.
The nature of the condition and the patient’s response to the treatments will play a key role in determining how many treatments will be needed. Most laser therapy plans of care will involve 6-12 treatments, with more treatment needed for longer-standing, chronic conditions. Your doctor will develop a treatment plan that is optimal for your condition.
Patients often report improved sensation, including a therapeutic warmth and some analgesia immediately after the treatment. Patients should undergo a series of treatments for noticeable changes in symptoms and conditions as the benefits of laser therapy from one treatment to the next are cumulative.
