Co-Founder and Physical Therapist Dr. Kostas Rizopoulos gives a quick breakdown:

Deep Tissue Laser Therapy accelerates your body’s own natural healing process through photo-bio-stimulation. Laser therapy provides concrete benefits to our patients, and is effective in treating chronic conditions, acute conditions and post surgical pain.

Clinical Benefits:

  • Effective for difficult conditions
  • Alternative to surgery
  • Fast treatment times
  • Easy non-invasive treatment

Laser Therapy is very beneficial in treating various musculoskeletal conditions. However, the best affect is achieved with each modality when the proper choice is made regarding which type of therapy will be most beneficial for a specific diagnosis. Our therapy staff at Hands-On Care Physical Therapy and PhysioCare Physical Therapy have found laser therapy to be a great tool in the care of its physical and occupational therapy patients when combined with traditional therapies of exercise, patient education, and Hands-On soft tissue and joint mobilization techniques.
