Deep Tissue Laser Therapy At Elite Spine and Sports Medicine
The Physical Therapist at Elite Spine and Sports Care of Totowa are proud to off the LightForce Deep Tissue Laser Therapy device! Laser therapy is a drug-free, surgery-free, pain-free modality that can relieve pain and discomfort associated with a wide range of injuries and ailments. This form of treatment is one of the quickest, least invasive and most effective pain management solutions available today!
How Does Deep Tissue Laser Therapy Work?
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 outside 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 tissues’ cells. The changes increase cellular metabolism which not only instantaneously relieves pain but 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 typically only takes about 10 minutes depending on the location of the effected area. Once seated, the physical therapist will begin the treatment. There is little-to-no sensation during the laser process! In some occasions, patients state that they feel a slight warmth prior to feeling pain relief. Aside from the immediate pain relief, patients report feeling less pain over a long period when using Deep Tissue Laser Therapy.
