What Is Deep Tissue Laser Therapy?
Deep Tissue Laser Therapy is an innovative process using laser energy to promote cellular activity deep within the affected area. As the laser passes over the exterior of the skin, the Lightforce laser therapy machine sends low-frequency lasers into the body. These lasers, or photons, enter the soft tissue creating biological changes within the cells of tissues. The changes increase cellular metabolism which instantaneously relieves pain and promotes a faster healing process.
What To Expect During A Deep Tissue Laser Therapy Appointment
Unlike other forms of pain management, Deep Tissue Laser Therapy is a quick, out-patient process that only takes about 10 minutes depending on the location of the affected area. As the physical therapist begins the treatment there is very little sensation. On some occasions, patients have said that they feel a slight warmth prior to feeling pain relief. Aside from the immediate pain relief, patients report feeling less pain over a longer period when using Deep Tissue Laser Therapy.
