According to reports, OBJ will get 1st in series of Phoenix Thera-Lase cell treatments on ankle Friday, similar to what Jared Allen received before SB50. This could mean that perhaps the MRI showed more soft tissue damage than the Giants are letting on. The treatment is a modality that sends light into the tissues. It stimulates mitochondrial activation to improve cellular healing. Also changes nerve conduction velocity short term to decrease pain. Class IV has a heat component too so you get some of the benefits of that. Decreased inflammation, improved healing times, decreased pain, according to TFD contributor Dr. Thomas Protopapas.

Thomas Protopapas, PT, DPT, CES, is a Doctor of Physical Therapy and Corrective Exercise Specialist. He received his Doctorate from Touro College, where he graduated with Academic Excellence and earned the prestigious Maimonides award. Tom currently practices in Westchester, NY, where he is a Clinical Director at JAG Physical Therapy, a high level outpatient orthopedic clinic, well-respected throughout NY and NJ.
