Laser treatment may last as little as 5 minutes or as long as 20 minutes. The total number of treatments is generally 6-20 depending upon many different factors, which will be evaluated by your Physical Therapist.
Most patients see results in 3 to 5 treatment sessions and the treatments have a therapeutic effect continuing for up to 18 hours after the treatment. It is important to remember that an immediate relief of pain does not mean the condition is fully healed. It is recommended that you continue the laser treatments to get the full effect of the laser therapy.
