Benefits of Deep Tissue Laser Therapy

Lower back discomfort can be excruciating. Some patients try to manage their discomfort by using pain relievers, but this only works temporarily. Others contemplate surgery, but it is too risky and can lead to complications. 

But thanks to advancements in technology, there is a better approach to pain management. Deep tissue laser therapy is both surgical and drug-free. It is non-invasive and helps decrease inflammation and discomfort. 

It works by flooding the tissues with photons, which energize the damaged cells and increase blood flow to the painful region. This triggers a series of reactions in your body that decrease inflammation, leading to less pain or complete elimination of pain. 

Why Choose Deep Tissue Laser Therapy?

The Treatment Has Proven to Be Effective

There is evidence that deep tissue laser treatment can provide relief to patients. The lasers can penetrate deep tissue structures, allowing them to treat a wide range of acute and chronic diseases. It is also useful in the treatment of:

  • Sprains/strains.

  • Fractures.

  • Post-surgical pain.

  • Arthritis.

  • Sports injuries.

  • Soft tissue damage.

The Treatment Is Safe

Patients feel some warmth when laser energy penetrates tissue. It enhances their body's natural regeneration abilities to relieve pain. Treatments are quick and painless. Some patients find the therapy comforting and wish it would last longer. 

Laser therapy penetrates deeply into the skin and promotes cellular metabolic activity. As a result, there are no negative effects. Furthermore, the option is better than other treatment techniques such as surgery.

Modifications to the Treatment Are Possible

Every patient is unique, from how their immune system responds, the degree of inflammation, to even how their body recovers. Deep tissue laser therapy offers a wide range of treatments that can meet the needs of each patient. 

Fast Treatment Time

Deep tissue treatments are fast. Generally, the treatment lasts five to ten minutes, but this will depend on the size of the area being treated. Additionally, the results are fast too. Most patients report significant pain relief just after their first session.

Treat Both Acute and Chronic Diseases

If there is no ongoing bleeding, doctors recommend laser therapy for acute injuries. This will help you recover quickly. Furthermore, deep tissue laser therapy is quite effective in the treatment of chronic illnesses. This is because it helps in the treatment of persistent chronic pain and inflammation.

Long-lasting Results

Patients feel better after the first treatment and significantly better after subsequent treatments. After each treatment, patients should expect considerable pain relief, with the effects lasting longer. The benefits are immediate, though the best results are evident after three to five sessions. 

Alternative to Drugs

Deep tissue laser treatment is a good alternative to most of the pain medications available. This is because most pain medications only provide a temporary cure to the illness. In addition, many pain medications have undesirable side effects.
