Benefits of Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is a form of treatment that can be used for a variety of conditions and circumstances with tremendous results. 

Primarily, laser therapy is used to treat pain, poor circulation, and inflammation, but it can also be used to reduce scar tissue to prevent it from worsening and increase the ability of your tissues to naturally heal themselves. 

Laser therapy allows these common conditions to be treated without risky medications, invasive treatments, and other treatment methods that sometimes produce worse side effects than the problem itself. 

However, a trained professional is required. They understand how to administer laser therapy treatments effectively to ensure you get noticeable results, avoid issues that can stem from inappropriate treatment methods, and properly identify whether the treatment is right for you or not. 

AUC Physical Therapy in Hempstead provides the assurance you need when opting for laser therapy, and you can trust that you’ll receive unmatched results without worry.

Laser Physiotherapy Treatment Process

Laser therapy is administered in two different forms. There is low-level laser therapy and high-power laser therapy. These can be hot or cold lasers. The exact type of laser therapy you receive will be determined by the condition you’re attempting to treat and the requirements that must be met to treat that condition. 

In any case, laser treatment is an ongoing treatment method. 

As a minimum, you should expect to go through 4 to 6 treatments. That’s the average number of treatments required for most standard conditions. 

However, it is often necessary to have as many as fourteen treatments of laser therapy in Hempstead performed daily for two weeks to provide lasting results for more serious cases. 

The exact number of treatments you’ll need, and the frequency of them, will have to be determined on a case-by-case basis by a professional laser therapist.

Luckily, while you will have to commit to daily or semi-daily treatments for a week or two, each session is short. The average laser therapy session is only a few minutes long, and even more extensive pain-related treatments are over within 15 minutes. Again, the exact duration is dependent on the expert opinion of a professional therapist.

Safety and Side Effects

Laser therapy is completely safe with minimal side effects. There are no serious, life-threatening, side effects at all. However, your skin can become red, and you might experience a small amount of pain. 

That’s why it’s so crucial to receive your laser therapy treatments from trained professionals such as the team at AUC Physical Therapy in Hempstead. Our experienced team can give you the highest quality laser therapy treatments without worrying about those minor side effects that most often stem from lackluster treatment practices. 

We strive to not only provide you with the safest environment possible, but we also focus on perfection and ensuring you see the results you’re looking for.
