Deep Tissue Laser Therapy is a non-invasive technique that is administered to the soft tissue and joints by a licensed therapist. It has been proven to be effective in decreasing pain and inflammation in patients during administration of treatment and in the 24-48 hours following treatment. Laser therapy allows your body to utilize its own healing powers by inducing a series of healing responses in your body. During treatment you will feel a soothing warmth that identifies the beginning of an 18-24 hour process of modulated cellular activity leading to decreased pain and inflammation.
Laser must be administered directly on the skin as it cannot produce the same effect through clothing. It is important that when you come in for your appointment that you are dressed in appropriate clothing that can expose the treatment area. Due to the nature of this therapy, all treatments are performed privately behind a treatment curtain. Many patients report feeling a soothing and comfortable warm feeling during topical application of the laser therapy.
Your therapist will be discussing your pain level with you at each session to provide the most appropriate treatment with the best results. Most conditions need 3-5 treatments sessions to feel consistent changes. Exact recommendations on what your injury will require will discussed with you by your therapist.
