This pain relief treatment is FDA cleared and enables patients to have an alternative to drugs and surgery. This form of therapy is used not only by 28 Major League Baseball teams but also exclusively by the University of Florida Gators.
Laser therapy treatments last between 5 and 10 minutes depending on the condition being treated. Laser therapy treatments must be 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.
Depending on the condition being treated your therapy may be administered through either a contact or non-contact handpiece. The contact handpiece is designed to allow the practitioner 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.
Patients generally see results after 3 to 5 treatments. Your doctor will develop a treatment plan that is optimal for your condition.
