Therapeutic Laser Therapy is simple and painless. Looking much like a flashlight, the probe is held close to the skin on the area being treated. The doctor will apply light to firm pressure to the area to improve the penetration of the energy.
The Therapeutic Laser is applied for a specific period of time to deliver the proper amount of laser energy. This will depend on the patient’s specific condition being treated. Treatment times vary based upon the size of the area and the predetermined depth of the therapy. Most treatments take 10 – 20 minutes.
Benefits of laser therapy:
- Swelling and pain relief
- Reduces dependence on medication
- Improves condition
- Allows patient to perform tasks previously incongruent with medical therapy
