3 Treatment Methods that Work Great with Laser Therapy

When patients are in pain there are many modalities and treatment techniques that can provide answers. Class IV laser therapy can be a great partner with many other pain relief techniques, here are three complimentary treatments you might not have considered…

Kinesio Taping
Kinesio taping has many benefits that make it an ideal complement to Deep Tissue Laser Therapy®. By lifting the epidermis from the fascia, taping allows for increased blood and fluid flow, and in cases of swelling, helps to reduce inflammation and pain.

Treating with LightForce® therapy lasers, both before and after kinesio taping, helps to enhance these properties. While the laser should not be used directly over the tape because the fabric will diminish penetration, it may be used on surrounding areas. The tape gives the patient the security they need to move with confidence and the laser provides the muscle loosening effect they need to perform these movements with comfort.

Graston®
The Graston Technique relies on manual manipulation with metal instruments to detect and break up scar tissue and adhesions. After manual manipulation, there can be some temporary inflammation, and deep tissue laser therapy is effective to use before and after to help reduce any resulting inflammation.

Class IV laser therapy also increases blood flow to the treated areas, bringing essential nutrients to help the chemically damaged tissue normalize.

Spinal Decompression
Spinal decompression is used to help relieve pressure on intervertebral discs, thereby alleviating associated pain and increasing nutrition flow to the discs, allowing them to begin healing.

Combining spinal decompression with deep tissue laser therapy helps to further reduce pain, increase circulation, and reduce inflammation. Laser therapy is often administered before and after decompression sessions for optimal results.

Please share any other modalities or treatment methods you are combining with laser therapy for great results!
