Laser Therapy


Description

Laser Therapy sounds a little like something from a sci-fi show, but we assure you, it’s all science-based and there’s no fiction involved. Laser therapy involves using energy to help damaged tissues in a non-invasive way. Laser therapy expedites healing while reducing pain and inflammation.

Physical therapists use lasers that produce a cold effect and/or ones that provide a warming effect. Both types of lasers provide pain relief and aid in healing of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular conditions. In addition to the direct healing that lasers can prompt, an indirect benefit comes with a greater range of motion, allowing the patient to perform more beneficial exercises and experience different modalities after laser treatments.

How Does Laser Therapy Work

Lasers are light energy that’s amplified and then focused. When talking about laser therapy for pain, there are three options hot or thermal, cold laser therapy or a combination of thermal and cold.

  • Hot laser therapy. Hot laser therapy is not an uncomfortable heat, it’s a warmth that patients will feel on their skin. When this therapy is used, the main goal is to prompt healing and tissue regeneration. It is also an effective form of laser treatment for pain and inflammation. Think of the heating pad you use for aches and pains, it’s similar but more targeted. Hot laser therapy does penetrate deeper into the tissues than cold lasers, which is why it’s sometimes referred to as deep tissue laser therapy.
  • Cold laser therapy. Cold laser therapy feels cold on the skin and can be compared to using an ice pack for injuries and to reduce swelling and pain. Cold lasers flood the tissues with photons which prompts a cellular healing response that can improve function, reduce swelling, and kickstart a metabolic effect that will continue for hours after the treatment is done.
  • Contrast laser therapy. Sometimes, therapists will follow a hot laser treatment with a cold one, this is called contrast therapy. It is an effective use of laser treatment for pain and will speed up healing for most patients.
