Laser Therapy

How can laser therapy help you?

Laser therapy is a non-invasive technique that can reduce pain and inflammation and improve post-activity recovery. Whether your pain is due to a chronic or acute condition, laser therapy can help support the healing process by reducing inflammation.

Laser therapy treatments generally last between 5 and 15 minutes depending on the condition being treated. Laser therapy treatments are administered directly to the skin, as laser light cannot penetrate through layers of clothing. You will feel a soothing warmth as the therapy is administered.

How does laser therapy work?

Depending on the condition being treated your therapy may be administered through either a contact or non-contact hand piece. The contact hand piece is designed to allow the therapist to physically manipulate the tissue while administering the treatment, resulting in a laser-massage treatment. This allows for light to penetrate deeper into tissues than the non-contact hand piece due to its ability to displace tissue through a laser-massage technique.

Patients typically see results after 6 to 10 treatments. Your therapist will customize a treatment plan based on your condition.
