Laser Therapy

In recent years, laser therapy has been established as the least invasive and most effective treatment for acute pain, chronic pain, and post-activity recovery. We perform laser therapy using LightForce® Pro Therapy Laser, a cutting-edge, class IV laser device that induces photobiomodulation to treat the root cause of your pain. This ensures long-term relief from pain without complications. Please consult our physical therapists to discuss your laser therapy options in Miami, FL.

What is Laser Therapy?

Laser therapy is an advanced pain relief treatment that uses focused light to induce photobiomodulation. This is a process wherein photons enter the targeted tissues and interact with the cytochrome c complex, thereby triggering a series of biological processes culminating in pain relief. Laser therapy increases cellular metabolism, reduces muscle spasms, improves blood circulation to the injured tissues, decreases pain, and promotes healing.

LightForce® Pro Therapy Laser

Miami Neurology & Rehabilitation Specialists (MNRS) performs laser therapy using the class IV laser device known as LightForce® Pro Therapy Laser. While a class III laser generates a maximum of 0.5W of power, a class IV laser generates 40W+ of power. High wattage is necessary to induce the necessary changes and stimulate photobiomodulation. That’s why the LightForce® Pro Therapy Laser can facilitate the treatment of superficial and deep tissues while most other lasers fail.

Your Laser Therapy Experience

Laser therapy is a comfortable and painless experience. The laser device will be moved over the treatment areas, allowing the laser light to penetrate your skin. You may feel a warm sensation when that happens — some patients compare the sensation to a hot stone massage. Furthermore, patients report a rapid decrease in pain after the treatment, so you can resume most of your daily activities without downtime.

Laser Therapy Duration & Frequency

Depending on the size and depth of the treatment area, your laser therapy session may last for 3 to 10 minutes. Most patients need a series of 6 to 12 treatments spaced a few days apart, but your providers will curate the ideal treatment plan based on your unique needs. The treatment results will gradually improve over successive sessions.

Is it Safe?

Class IV laser therapy (photobiomodulation) has been FDA-approved for the reduction of pain since 2004. The LightForce® Pro Therapy Laser is the best of its kind, ensuring a completely safe and painless experience. The eyes are the only vulnerable parts of the body, and they’re covered with protective goggles during the treatment. As such, laser therapy is completely safe.
