How to Treat Summer Injuries
Yay, it’s Summer!!! As the days heat up we start becoming more active outdoors. Our weekend warrior goes in to high gear. That is when we experience more injuries. Strains, sprains, pulls, tears, aches and pains all pop up unexpectedly. Whether you’re playing baseball, surfing, skateboarding, golfing or even playing Corn Hole, injuries can occur.
Laser Therapy, or “photobiomodulation”, is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to create therapeutic effects. These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling/inflammation. Laser Therapy has been widely utilized in Europe by physical therapists, nurses and doctors as far back as the 1970’s. Now, after FDA clearance in 2002, Laser Therapy is being used extensively in the United States. K-Laser Therapy is used to treat numerous conditions.
