Laser Physical Therapy in Utah

Laser Therapy How Does It Work?


When the light from the laser is placed on your skin, it gets absorbed in the cells of your muscles. Just like how plants use light from the sun to grow, your body uses the light from the laser to repair itself. When you get injured, you go through 3 phases of healing:

Inflammation. The injured area gets red and puffy and might even feel a little warm to the touch. This is your body’s natural response to any injury. Unfortunately, the swelling you experience can be painful. Imagine you are trying to put your foot in your shoe. On any normal day, this is no problem and causes you no pain. However, if you put on three layers of socks, space in your shoe quickly disappears and after walking for a little bit you start to get blisters. Your body has the exact same response when an injury occurs! Inflammation is just blood flowing into that area to help heal the damaged tissue. Increased blood flow creates less space for movement in that area, which results in pain.

Repair. This is where Laser Therapy starts to come into play. Your body will increase blood flow to an injured area in order to bring in cells that can repair the damaged tissue. Laser physical therapy in Utah and the process of PBM speed up the healing process by giving energy to the cells that are responsible for healing tissue, therefore decreasing the amount of time that someone can spend in the Inflammation stage.

Remodeling. The final stage of the healing process is remodeling. This simply means training the repaired tissue to perform all the tasks that it had performed prior to injury. Laser Therapy is still beneficial in this stage because not all of the tissue is repaired by this point. The most beneficial thing you can do at this stage of healing is to come to Physical Therapy. With the help of a therapist, you can regain normal movement and improve the strength in the repaired tissue so that you never injure that body part again for the foreseeable future.

I injured my left ACL racing BMX bikes at age 40 (not smart). My surgeon replaced my ACL and I started PT here shortly after. I had my first appointment with Brenda and she did a wonderful job listening to my concerns and most importantly my goals. She beat my knee the first visit, which was VERY unpleasant but necessary. Fast forward 6 weeks, and I have my full range of motion back. I can golf, ride bikes with my kids, and walk all day. When I finally make it big BMX racing in my 40’s, I’ll have a Rock Run sticker on my helmet.

I came to Rock Run PT from another PT office because I was not progressing fast enough. When I came to Rock Run PT and told them my issue, they started me out with small weights and my progression started. I improved my strength in my arm and shoulder. This was after the 8th surgery and with one arm. I had to improve my strength so I could do my daily workout in my 1/5th acre garden.

I was being seen for a torn MCL. Josh did a great job evaluating the issue and then designing a recovery program. I feel my knee is much stronger than before the injury. Everyone on the staff has been great. Very accommodating and understanding. Thank you for everything.

My experience at Rock Run has been amazing. When I first started coming to PT, I had a lot of pain in my hips and had a hard time walking/running.  After working with Brittnee, she showed me things I could do to strengthen my muscles. I have never felt better and my hips feel great. I can go on walks and runs now without pain!

I have had such an amazing experience at Rock Run. Everyone is so nice and I am so happy with how much happier I am with my ankle motion. Josh and Amanda have done such a great job at pushing me and helping me do things that I never would have been able to do on my own. I definitely struggled with walking and moving around before but I am moving much better and can do so much more. I am so thankful for everything that the employees at Rock Run have helped me accomplish. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is in need of Physical Therapy.

Very positive experience all around. At the beginning, I had a lot of pain when performing basic activities, like walking or going up stairs. I was very skeptical about the benefits that physical therapy could provide.

The exercises performed here took my body out of the comfort zone and were very awkward at first. However, after three weeks, I have seen amazing improvement. The pain level in my daily life and activities has dropped significantly and I can now say that I feel healthy again.

When I first came to physical therapy, I was having difficulty functioning at all because of my back. After two visits I was feeling so much better! I could not believe the difference! I loved that all the staff were focused on teaching me how to take care of my back, so I could do everything on my own. I even graduated early because my back was so much better!
