Laser therapy is a safe, pain-free treatment that only takes a few minutes per visit.
Laser Therapy does not require the use of drugs or surgery, and there are no side effects or risks that may occur with other forms of treatment.
In addition, it can often achieve results faster and better than other treatment modalities.
Many conditions show signs of improvement in even the first or second treatments.
The primary mechanism of laser therapy is photobiomodulation which causes a stimulation of cells and tissue repair that is based on scientific research which has demonstrated positive physiological effects of infrared wavelengths on cellular organelles and electron chain molecules.
The stimulation of cells and tissues helps to heal injuries faster and can help to decrease pain levels.
The treatments tend to last around 3 – 12 minutes depending on your condition.
Most patients do not feel any pain from the treatment.
On occasion, there may be some conditions that the laser stimulates, that may feel uncomfortable and even more painful, which will subside and go away within a period of time and with follow up laser therapy treatments.
If you have any questions or concerns about laser therapy, make sure to contact your primary physician.
