Whether you're a serious athlete or someone who just exercises on the weekends, you're at risk of developing a sports-related injury at some point. Plantar facsciitis, muscle strains, and other common sports injuries are now being treated with laser therapy, which helps speed up the healing process and offers a more positive outcome. Many professional athletes seek laser therapy as part of their warm-up routine, for pain management, and as part of a rehabilitation plan after an injury.
Laser therapy enhances the body's natural healing process and helps reduce inflammation. The light source penetrates tissue, helping to increase circulation and to restore cellular function. The laser doesn't break the skin, as surgical lasers do. This non-invasive FDA-approved technique reduces pain, and can often completely replace the need for pain medications.
At Comprehensive Pain & Wellness, laser therapy is available to help with the treatment of sports injuries. Not only is it effective in treating acute conditions, it's also helpful in treating chronic pain and post-surgical pain. In some cases, laser therapy replaces the need for surgery.
Laser therapy offers fast treatment times, as sessions only last 10-15 minutes, and most patients see results after only 1 or 2 treatments.
The science behind laser therapy is nothing short of amazing. The Influence™ software utilized by the laser therapy system developed by LiteCure takes into account the patient's clinical condition, injury location, height, body type and skin type in order to create custom treatment plans. Each individual plan is designed to deliver optimal penetration depth and dosing. As each patient is unique, so will be their laser therapy treatment plan.
Whether you're training for a marathon, playing in a weekly soccer league, playing professional baseball, or participating in sports in any other way, you could benefit from laser therapy treatments that reduce pain and speed up the healing process after an injury.
