Laser Therapy: A State-of-the-Art Way To Treat Your Aches And Pains

Laser therapy is a treatment that is non-invasive, safe, and effective for treating pain and assisting patients in recovering from a wide range of conditions. Although it may appear unusual at first, it is an excellent way to help relieve discomfort and promote healing.

I Am A Bit Apprehensive Of Laser Therapy – What Can I Expect?

It is understandable to be hesitant or concerned about receiving a new type of treatment with which you are unfamiliar. Some people might associate lasers with burning or pain. However, we can assure you that laser therapy is NOT painful and is completely safe! It is important to know that depending on the type of laser used, you might feel nothing or very little during a laser procedure.

Laser therapies work by injecting photons into the tissues surrounding the affected area. These photons allow the injured area to relieve pain, energize cells, and improve circulation. Procedures typically last 2-10 minutes, and patients see results after only a few short sessions. If you are ever uncomfortable during your treatment, simply inform your therapist. They will gladly collaborate with you to ensure that you are confident and informed about what is going on during your session.

How Is It Performed?

Before designing your customized treatment plan, one of our professional Agoura Hills, CA physical therapists will conduct a thorough physical assessment and review your medical history during your visit. This assessment is carried out in order to properly assess your situation and determine which therapeutic methods will be most beneficial to you.

Laser therapy is widely regarded as one of the least invasive and most effective treatment methods available. Treatments are applied directly to the skin to avoid contact with the pupils. Medical lasers have been licensed by the FDA and must adhere to strict ISO guidelines.
