What Is Deep Tissue Laser Therapy?
Deep Tissue Laser therapy is a cutting-edge medical treatment that harnesses the power of focused light to activate a fascinating process known as photobiomodulation (PBM). Through PBM, photons penetrate the tissue, setting off a remarkable chain reaction of biological events that ultimately heightens cellular metabolism. As a result, this process can effectively alleviate pain and inflammation while expediting the body’s natural healing mechanisms.

Frequently Asked Questions
What does treatment feel like?
Laser therapy treatments must be applied directly to the skin, as clothing or topical dressings can hinder the delivery of light to the underlying tissues. During the therapy, patients will experience a comforting warmth. Many patients who undergo LightForce Therapy Laser treatments find the experience enjoyable, especially when the massage ball treatment head is used, which is often referred to as a “laser massage.” Patients receiving treatments with higher-power lasers also frequently report a rapid reduction in pain. This effect can be particularly significant for individuals dealing with chronic pain.
How long do treatments take?
LightForce lasers offer swift treatments, typically lasting 4-7 minutes, depending on the size, depth, and chronicity of the condition being addressed. With their high-power capabilities, these lasers efficiently deliver substantial energy within a short timeframe, facilitating the quick attainment of therapeutic dosages.
How many treatments are needed?
Typically, patients start noticing improvements after undergoing 3 to 5 treatment sessions. Our PTs will tailor individualized care plans based on the diagnosis and the specific tissues involved. It is important to note that chronic conditions often necessitate a more extensive course of therapy compared to acute conditions.
