Does laser therapy hurt?
Before receiving a new type of care that you might not be fully comfortable with, it is understandable to be reluctant or worried. We can assure you that laser therapy does NOT hurt and it IS totally safe.
Laser treatments work by releasing photons into the tissues surrounding the affected area being treated. These photons enable the damaged area to alleviate pain, energize cells, and increase circulation.
It’s important to know that you will experience little or no sensation at all when you undergo a laser treatment, depending on the type of laser that is being used.
Typically, procedures last from 2-10 minutes, and after only a few short sessions, patients begin to see results.
What conditions is laser therapy used for?
Laser therapy can be used for both acute and chronic conditions.
Some examples of conditions that it may benefit are neck pain, shoulder pain, sports injuries, plantar fasciitis, back pain and sciatica, arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, disc injuries. TMJ, carpal tunnel syndrome, migraines, damage to soft tissue, and more.
During your appointment, one of our skilled Cambridge and Marblehead physical therapists will perform a physical assessment and review your medical history before creating your customized treatment plan.

What else should I know?
