PTs are taking a shine to lasers, with or without reimbursement
After four years of treating all kinds of patients with the latest generation of Class IV deep-tissue lasers, Charles Donley, PT, is a convert. “We’ve seen nothing less than phenomenal results,” he told ADVANCE.
Exhibit #1: A diabetic man who badly burnt his hand trying to reattach a loose hydraulic line in his tractor. “He didn’t respond to antibiotics,” recalled Donley, director of Regional Rehab, located in Spring Hill on the west coast of Florida. “His attending physician was about to recommend amputation but sent him to us for laser therapy first. Two months and a week later, [he had] total healing of the hand. I have video and pictures of it from day one.”
