Laser Therapy is the use of lasers in surgery and other medical cosmetic treatment. The goal of laser therapy is to reduce pain and inflammation in your muscles! Many patients say that the treatment actually feels quite good while the laser creates a warm feeling. Treatments also take just about 5-10 minutes!
Now that you know the simplistics of laser therapy, here is why I believe it can help athletes. Athletes experience plenty of wear and tear over the course of their careers, the tissue in their bodies starts to experience trauma and eventually swell up when damaged cells in the tissue release chemicals. If an athlete consistently experiences swelling, it can lead to degenerative changes in their joints or even arthritis. Laser therapy can only benefit an athlete in that case, as the laser therapy treats inflammation, this leads to a quicker recovery time and allows the athlete to get back on the playing field faster! So not only is it helping the athlete and their team in that very moment, but laser therapy is even benefiting their future health by preventing arthritis for example.
Laser Therapy is SAFE! Do not be afraid because of the lasers! The majority of patients also see the results in about 3 to 5 treatments, that is faster than any drug or surgery would heal you. Remember, each treatment is about 5-10 minutes!
While this was a short article, I hope the information provided helped you to see why Laser Therapy is important for athletes to use!
