Role Lightforce Laser Therapy Plays in Surgical Recovery
Surgery is, by nature, an invasive procedure that causes damage to the skin and muscle layers. Lightforce Laser Therapy is designed to help alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and accelerate recovery. While Lightforce Laser Therapy is often used as a replacement for surgical intervention, it can also be a complementary therapy which speeds the healing process.
The Lightforce Laser Therapy works to penetrate the deeper layers of the epidermis. Tissue that is not receiving adequate circulation does not get enough oxygen and nutrients. The laser therapy stimulates circulation and the growth of protein and collagen. The deep penetrating photons activate a biochemical cascade of events that increases cellular regeneration and healing.
The main advantage of the Lightforce Laser Therapy is its versatility. Without the side effects of drugs, the laser therapy is noninvasive and runs no risk of interaction with other medications such as pain killers. The treatment is painless and often described as increasing comfort. The patient either experiences little to no sensation from the laser, or a soothing warmth.
Treatments Don’t Take Long
The last thing a patient wants to deal with during a surgical recovery is long, drawn out sessions in the doctor’s office. Lightforce Laser Therapy is administered in relatively short bursts lasting from 5 to 15 minutes at a time. The therapeutic benefits continue to develop following the treatment, making laser therapy effective and useful in surgical recovery.
With the reduction of pain and the increased speed of recovery, patients can recover mobility much more quickly. Having less pain allows you to participate in fitness activities and in physical therapy which will, in turn, prevent long-lasting injury and result in a more complete, efficient healing process.
