What is Deep Tissue Laser Therapy?
Deep tissue laser therapy is a Class 4 laser that is a non invasive, painless, FDA approved modality that utilizes light in the 810-980 nm wavelength to reduce pain, reduce inflammation, and accelerate healing.
The skilled application of a therapeutic dose of light to impaired and dysfunctional tissue results in an 18-24 hour process of modulated cellular activity known as photobiomodulation. At Taylor Rehab we offer class IV laser therapy which is a higher powered delivery system with a more efficient delivery of light to deeper tissues than previous class I,II,III “cold laser” treatments. It affords the clinicians the ability to efficiently deliver adequate doses of light to deeper tissues and larger treatment areas with greater cellular change than lower powered lasers.
Is Deep Tissue Laser Therapy right for me?
Class 4 laser can be beneficial in treating a wide range of diagnosis including chronic conditions, acute conditions, post surgical pain, athletic injuries and arthritic pain.
Is a physician referral necessary?
Direct access allows individuals the opportunity to seek physical therapy treatment without the need for a physician referral. There are a few select insurance plans, in addition to Medicare, that require a physician referral in order to have the services covered. That requirement can be determined at the time of insurance benefit verification.
