Instant Reload for php changes

I am running Live Server and Live Sass Compiler in VS Code. Css changes are handled very well by Instant Reload however, I wonder if I can trigger auto reload on php file changes by adding the local address as a proxy in the Live Server settings. Or is it possible to make Instant Reload also watch for php changes?

Thanks in advance for any leads

I have managed to get this working by using WPgulp in the theme folder. I was still hoping for a less complicated method.
