ALL ABOUT DEEP TISSUE LASER THERAPY THE LATEST IN ALLEVIATING CHRONIC AND ACUTE PAIN
IS IT SAFE? We use LightForce Laser therapy at Campus Commons, which is FDA approved and among the safest treatment options of its kind on the market. When you’re undergoing laser therapy, the most you’ll feel is a warm, soothing sensation in the area being treated. Aside from that, however, you shouldn’t feel any pain. If any pain does occur, communicate to the practitioner to adjust your treatment before continuing. HOW EFFECTIVE IS IT AT ALLEVIATING PAIN? Deep tissue laser therapy uses 15W of therapeutic power to alleviate pain in your muscle tissue. Treatments take no longer than 5–10 minutes at a time, and while results can be immediate, most patients will feel better after just 3–5 treatment sessions. The body actually continues benefiting from the effects of the therapy for 18–24 hours after each treatment, decreasing pain levels and inflammation.

You don’t have to live with your chronic pain any longer!
At Campus Commons Physical Therapy, we do everything we can to help our patients alleviate acute and chronic pain. While, in many cases, this looks like helping patients through a series of exercises and stretches, scientific advances of the modern age have given physical therapists a more diverse array of noninvasive methods to help patients. One of those methods is deep tissue laser therapy. HOW DOES DEEP TISSUE LASER THERAPY WORK? This method of treating chronic and acute muscle pain works by shooting beams of energy into your underlying tissue and muscle, boosting your body’s own ability to regenerate and relieve pain. It actually helps the body heal itself, while also removing the need for excessive prescription drugs, and unlike surgery, it is completely noninvasive.
