What is Laser Therapy?
Laser Therapy is the FDA cleared, non-invasive use of laser energy to generate a photochemical response in the damaged or dysfunctional tissue. Laser therapy can alleviate pain, reduce inflammation and accelerate recovery from a wide range of acute and chronic clinical conditions.
As doctors know, the main goal of treatment for many, when treating painful, debilitating conditions, is to facilitate improved function and mobility. Laser Therapy is effective in treating acute pain, chronic conditions, and post-op pain. Laser therapy is a drug-free, surgery-free technique to help make that goal a reality.
The lasers work by flooding the tissue with photons, which energizes cells resulting in increased circulation to the injured area and ultimately pain reduction. Laser treatments usually takes 5-10 minutes, and typically patients see results in 3-5 treatment sessions.
What conditions benefit from Laser Therapy?
Sprains and Strains
Shoulder and Knee
Tendonitis & Tendonosis
Foot & Ankle Conditions
What do expect with a Laser Therapy treatment?
Laser therapy treatment is safe, painless and fast. Deep Tissue Laser Therapy treatments are administered in 5 to 10 minutes. Deep Tissue Laser Therapy utilizes your body’s own healing powers by stimulating cellular activity. Despite fast treatment times, laser therapy treatments initiate a healing process that continues to actively reduce inflammation for up 24 hours after treatment. Typically patients see results after 3 to 5 treatment sessions.
Laser therapy allows your body to utilize it’s 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 therapy is a non-invasive technique to help reduce pain and inflammation. Laser therapy can be safely used as an adjunct or replacement for pharmaceutical drugs. This pain relief treatment is FDA cleared and enables patients to have an alternative to drugs and surgery.
Your doctor will develop a treatment plan that is optimal for your condition.
How is the Laser Therapy administered?
Laser therapy treatments must be administered directly to skin, as laser light cannot penetrate through layers of clothing. You will feel a soothing warmth as the therapy is administered.
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 Dr. Gould, 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 it’s ability to displace tissue through a laser-massage technique.
