Deep Tissue Laser Therapy
Deep Tissue Laser Therapy is a treatment offered at Joint Effort Physical Therapy for its safe, effective, and non-invasive way to treat pain and aid in the recovery of many conditions. The Deep Tissue Therapy Lasers works by flooding injured tissue with light energy, stimulating damaged cells, and increasing circulation to the painful area. This creates a cascade of healing responses in your body, reducing inflammation, speeding up healing, and decreasing or even eliminating your pain. Treatments take just a few minutes; however, the therapeutic effect continues to soothe and heal long after you leave the office.

When should laser therapy be used?
Laser therapy can be used for both acute and chronic conditions, including neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain and sciatica, arthritis, bursitis, disc injuries, TMJ, sports injuries, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, migraines, soft tissue damage, and MORE!
Before determining your treatment plan, one of our dedicated Hot Springs, AR physical therapists will conduct a physical evaluation and assessment of your medical history in order to diagnose your condition and decide which treatment options will best benefit you. Both the type of the laser and its strength will be dependent upon the results of your initial evaluation.
Will laser treatments hurt me?
There is always some apprehension that comes along with laser therapy – we always receive questions such as, “does it hurt?” or “is it safe?” It is understandable to be hesitant before receiving a new form of treatment that you may not be entirely familiar with. However, we can definitively say that laser therapy does NOT hurt and it IS completely safe!
Laser treatments are completely pain-free, despite common skepticism. When you receive a laser treatment, you will feel little to no sensation at all, depending on the type of laser that is being used.
What you may feel is a gentle, soothing warmth from the laser, that many patients report as being quite pleasant. Treatments typically last between 2-10 minutes and patients begin seeing results after just a few short sessions.
What else should I know about laser therapy?
Laser therapy has earned a reputation as being one of the safest, non-invasive treatment options on the market. In fact, medical lasers are approved by the FDA and they adhere to strict ISO standards. Laser treatments are administered directly to the skin, in order to avoid contact with eyes.
