How Deep Tissue Laser Therapy Can Help After an Auto Accident

Car accidents, no matter how minor, can result in a range of head, neck, and back injuries. They can also cause acute or chronic pain. Depending on the type and severity of strain or injury, non-invasive rehabilitative treatments like deep tissue laser therapy can help with pain management after a car accident. 

At Revive Medical & Rehab in Spring Hill, Florida, Dr. Gabriel Boze and our team of specialists offer a range of therapeutic services to help you heal and recover after an auto accident.

What are the benefits of deep tissue laser therapy? 

Auto accidents are incredibly common. According to the National Safety Council, over four million people required some form of medical treatment for auto accident-related injuries in 2019. 

Even minor injuries from an auto accident can impact your mobility, cause long term joint, nerve, or tissue damage. These injuries can even impact your ability to work, exercise, and enjoy a normal quality of life.

Any part of the body can become injured in a car accident, but some of the most common injuries after a collision include:

The effects of an auto accident can linger for months or years, and cause stress, anxiety, and depression in addition to physical injuries.

What happens during a deep tissue laser therapy session?

Deep tissue laser therapy is a non-invasive therapeutic treatment designed to relieve pain and reduce inflammation.

Laser therapy uses light particles to penetrate and target injured tissue without invasive treatments. There are no incisions or wounds. The procedure is performed in the office and there is no downtime or recovery period, so you can go back to work or your normal activities after your session. 

Depending on the extent of the injury and individual circumstances, some people start to experience relief in as little as 24 hours after their first session. After several sessions, the inflammation decreases and the tissue begins to heal. A typical session lasts between five to ten minutes and doesn’t require anesthetics or pain medication of any kind for the treatment. 

Depending on your symptoms and the specific nature of your condition, Dr. Boze may recommend deep tissue laser therapy in addition to other therapeutic treatments as part of a comprehensive treatment plan.

If you’re suffering from pain or mobility issues from injuries sustained in an auto accident, we can help.
