NFL superstar, Odell Beckham Jr, using laser therapy to get back on field faster!

I recently read this article, when it popped up on my feed from Bleacher Report. A couple weeks back, the New York Giants were playing the Cleveland Browns and Odell Beckham Jr, the star receiver for the Giants, sustained a left ankle sprain during a tackle. This is a tough injury to have, especially when your job requires you to shift and cut on the field like a wide receiver. Most of the time, it takes time to heal this injury, but Odell decided to take a different approach to get back faster. odell beckham

All the Giants will say about the condition of star wide receiver Odell Beckham is that “he’s got an ankle.”

Specifically, he has two, but the one that’s injured is about to undergo an alternative treatment in hopes of getting him back on the field quicker.

According to Gil Brandt of SiriusXM NFL Radio, Beckham is going today for the first in a series of Phoenix Thera-Lase treatments, similar to a process Jared Allen underwent before playing in Super Bowl 50, after Allen missed the NFC Championship Game with a broken foot.

While the results of the treatment are yet to be seen, there is a concern among Giants officials that Beckham could miss the regular season opener, according to Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.

But that could depend on the laser (which may or may not be attached to the head of a fricking shark). According to Phoenix Thera-Lase’s website, the treatment is done from a “portable laser bio-stimulation device,” and “delivers concentrated laser-light energy to the cellular level of the body” to reduce inflammation and help heal soft-tissue injuries.


Now we do not have a Pheonix Laser but we use one that is known to be better for healing acute injuries, like sprains, strains and even flare ups of old injuries that have arthritis. The Class IV LightForce FX. 

Below are some pictures of a recent patient that sustained a hamstring injury while water-skiing. This was after one pass of the LightForce laser over the swelling and bruising.

Laser works very well for speeding up recovery from injury. So if you have a injury playing a sport or climbing or have some old achy knee that bothers you. Come try laser therapy to see how it helps you.
