Laser Therapy

Breast Rehab uses therapeutic laser treatments to stimulate and repair the body's cells.

What is laser therapy?

Laser therapy is a non-invasive technique that uses light energy to enhance your body’s own natural healing systems to relieve pain, increase joint mobility, build tissue integrity, and promote cell regeneration.

Breast Rehab therapists are trained to use Theralase therapeutic laser therapy. This low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is a safe, effective, non-invasive procedure used to treat acute or chronic pain. Therapeutic lasers use light energy to stimulate cells in the body to produce chemicals that are involved in the healing process. Your body absorbs this laser light and transforms it into chemical energy, which your body then uses to trigger its own tissue repairs. This bio-stimulating effect decreases inflammation and pain while increasing tissue regeneration and healing. Within a short period of time and without side effects, you can get back to doing what you love.

Laser therapy can be used to:

  • decrease pain
  • decrease inflammation, swelling, and stiffness
  • accelerate tissue healing
  • reduce post-surgery scar tissue
  • enhance joint mobility
  • repair damaged nerves
  • bring feeling back to numb areas

Laser therapy treatments can last between 5 and 20 minutes depending on the condition being treated. The total number of treatments will depend on the severity of the condition. Laser therapy treatments are administered directly to skin without pain or the need for recovery time. Though you may feel a soothing warmth as the therapy is administered, treatments are non-invasive and require no prescription. Most extended health care plans provide coverage for laser therapy for you and your family members.

Laser therapy is just one of the ways Breast Rehab can help you get back to doing what you love after breast surgery or breast cancer treatment.
