K-Laser Therapy in Burke, VA
What is Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy is a non-invasive technique to help reduce pain and inflammation. Light from the laser penetrates the cells in the body causing the cells to release energy. This energy release stimulates the body to speed up the healing process and reduce inflammation and pain. Laser therapy is FDA cleared and provides pain relief for many conditions.
Laser therapy treatments last between 5-10 minutes depending on the condition being treated. Laser therapy does not hurt and actually feels quite good and there is a sense of warmth over the area being treated. Patients generally notice a significant improvement by the 3rd or 4th visit but it is not uncommon to see significant improvement in just one session. Dr. Sullivan will provide a treatment plan based on your condition.
The number of treatments required will depend on the condition and how long the patient has been affected by it. In general, acute conditions can be treated more frequently and require fewer visits, typically 6-8 visits. Chronic conditions may require more visits and do not need laser treatments as frequently.
