Commonly Asked Therapeutic Laser Questions

What conditions can be treated with therapeutic laser?

It has proven beneficial in managing musculoskeletal pain associated with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and fibromyalgia. It’s also used for soft tissue injuries, including tendinitis, bursitis, and sprains. Furthermore, it aids in healing wounds and burns, and it’s beneficial in treating skin conditions like acne and psoriasis. Other applications include treatment of nerve-related pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and temporomandibular joint disorders. While therapeutic laser can offer relief for these conditions, its effectiveness can vary and consultation with a healthcare provider is necessary before beginning treatment.

What are the safety concerns associated with therapeutic laser?

Therapeutic laser therapy is generally considered safe and non-invasive. However, some potential concerns can include temporary skin redness, irritation, and minor pain at the treatment site. The laser should not be used over cancerous lesions, the eyes, or during pregnancy, due to unknown potential safety concerns. Always consult a healthcare provider before starting treatment to ensure this therapy is appropriate for your specific condition and circumstances.
