Treatments are performed by positioning the laser hand piece approximately 1/2" to an 1" above the skin and surrounding the area of injury and pain with the beam. Various areas may be treated including:
- Directly over the site of injury or lesion
- Nerve roots or superficial nerve trucks
- Acupuncture points
- Trigger points or tender points
Depending on the conditions being treated your therapy may be administered through either a contact or non-contact hand piece. The contact hand piece is designed to allow the practitioner to physically manipulate the tissue while administering the treatment, resulting in a laser-massage treatment. This allows for light to penetrate deeper into tissues than the non-contact hand piece and it's ability to displace tissue.
