I broke my hand and was referred by a doctor for a hand surgery. I had a plate and a screw in my hand after the surgery and was in a lot of pain. I had to return to work as soon as possible, but I was told by my surgeon I have to stay home at least 5-6 weeks. I worked in the kitchen, using my hand a lot to cut stuff, and my doctor was worried I can easily re injure my hand because my bone and soft tissue were weak. I started using laser therapy to accelerate healing, speed my recovery and reduce the pain in my hand. I was surprised that after my first laser therapy session I could see and feel the improvement. I had 6 laser sessions within 3 weeks and then, went to my surgeon for an evaluation. He was very surprised at the rate my bone and my soft tissue was healing and said that everything looks much better then he anticipated. After taking an X-ray he was able to clear me for work in 3 weeks, instead of 6. Three pictures of my hand were taken before and after the surgery, and 3 weeks later after 6 laser treatments.
