When using laser treatment to treat acute problems, it is most effective when used as soon as possible after the trauma (assuming there is no active hemorrhaging). The quicker the inflammation is decreased and the process of healing can get started, the better. Laser therapy helps the body return to normal function more quickly after an acute injury.
Laser therapy is most commonly used to help combat chronic pain and inflammation in chronic illnesses. Clinicians are using the new LightForce EXP 25-watt laser to quickly reduce swelling in patients suffering from pain. Because it allows doctors to treat a larger region of interest even while delivering therapeutically relevant dosages, this therapy laser is particularly well-suited for treating chronic illnesses.
