Giants WR Odell Beckham undergoing laser treatment on injured ankle

According to Gil Brandt of SiriusXM NFL Radio, Beckham is going to be in Phoenix today for the first in a series of 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. 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.
