Laser Therapy and Surgical Recovery

How Laser Therapy Aids in Surgical Recovery

When it comes to surgical procedures, orthopedic surgeons are always looking for ways to improve recovery times and outcomes for their patients. In many cases, laser therapy can be an effective way to do just that. Let’s take a look at how laser therapy aids in surgical recovery.

Laser therapy uses light beams at specific wavelengths that interact with body cells. All body cells are capable of interacting with various light frequencies, and when those specific frequencies are used, it can trigger the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in the body. All that translates to additional energy, which helps tremendously in the recovery process.

Cells are repaired more quickly, more new cells are created, and additional nutrients and oxygen are rushed to the target site. All the while, pain, and inflammation are also reduced, which speeds up recovery. The bottom line is, that in several different ways, laser therapy can accelerate the healing process and make a patient feel much better while these processes are underway.

Laser therapy treatments are 100% safe and effective. After just one or two treatments, your patients should have vastly improved functionality in their glands and organs, much faster healing, and a noticeable reduction in pain and inflammation. Perhaps best of all, there are no unpleasant side effects from the therapy treatments, so it won’t add to their recovery woes.

In addition to all the wonderful benefits obtainable through laser therapy, most patients also experience a boost to their immune systems and benefit from a kind of detoxification process that is stimulated by laser therapy. This helps eliminate any toxins that may have built up in the body from previous medications or anesthesia or any other toxins that have accumulated. All this promotes the recovery process and helps shave days or even weeks off the time necessary to restore your patients to good health.

Faster recovery after surgery

For your patients who want to recover faster from surgery, taking a proactive approach and seeking laser therapy can be their best bet. They will quickly notice a reduction in pain and inflammation, and they will have more peace of mind, knowing that the recovery processes in their bodies are being accelerated and enhanced by the benefits delivered by laser therapy.
