What to Expect from Laser Therapy:
- Laser therapy is a non-invasive technique to help reduce pain and inflammation. The use of laser is a safe alternative or adjunct for pharmaceutical drugs. This device has FDA approval as a pain relief treatment. JOI Rehab’s licensed therapists will perform each treatment as directed by your physician.
- The treatment lasts between 3-15 minutes, depending on the condition. It is administered directly to the skin, Laser light cannot penetrate through layers of clothing. You will feel a soothing warmth as the therapy is administered.
- Depending on the body part, I choose either a “contact” or “non-contact” handpiece. The contact handpiece is designed to allow your therapist to physically manipulate the tissue. The result is a laser-massage treatment. This allows for light to penetrate deeper into tissues than the non-contact handpiece allows.
- In my experience, you should receive positive results after 5-8 treatments. I have also seen an immediate response during the initial treatment. In conclusion, your doctor and JOI therapist will develop a treatment plan that is optimal for your specific condition.
How Does It Work?
Medical Laser Therapy works by flooding the tissue with photon energy. Therefore, the energize cells within the injured tissue will start the healing process. This therapy allows your body to utilize its own restorative powers by inducing a series of healing responses in your body. Finally, the laser will start an 18-24 hour process of modulated cellular activity leading to decreased pain and inflammation.
