There are several ways in which laser therapy can help these conditions.
First, it can reduce inflammation by increasing blood flow to the affected area and promoting the removal of inflammatory substances. This can help to relieve pain, swelling, and stiffness.
Secondly, laser therapy can stimulate the production of collagen, a protein that is essential for the maintenance and repair of connective tissues such as tendons and ligaments. This can help to speed up the healing process and improve the strength and flexibility of the affected tissues.
Finally, laser therapy can help to reduce pain by blocking the transmission of pain signals to the brain. This can provide immediate pain relief and may also reduce the need for pain medication.
What Happens During Treatment?
Laser light will be shone on the skin surface from a probe, over and around the condition site. Treatments will be repeated at regular intervals depending on the condition we are treating. The only sensation you will feel is a warmth.
When Will I Start Feeling Better?
Some people notice change after only one treatment, but most people will notice a reduction in pain by treatment three.
How Long Will The Effects Last?
- When there is a reduction in pain it will usually last from 24 to 48 hours.
- For acute cases therapy is usually finished after the first treatment series of 6
- For chronic cases therapy may need to be administered on an ongoing basis to maintain results.
