Cold Laser Physical Therapy

Dr. Gerry Diethelm came in this week to provide critical care patient Izzy with cold light physical therapy. This low-level laser uses light-emitting diodes to alter cellular function. Dr. Diethelm used settings to reduce joint pain Izzy may feel, and promote healthy tissue growth. Izzy was admitted in August with a boat propeller wound to the head and carapace. After surgery at the end of August to remove dead bone and tissue, Dr. Gerry’s physical therapy treatments will continue to aid her recovery process.
