Cold Laser Treatments
We are proud to announce that we have a new therapy at our office – Cold Laser Therapy. Cold Laser Therapy is a treatment that utilizes a specific wavelength of light to interact with tissues to provide an accelerated healing process. This treatment can help patients who suffer from a multitude of acute and chronic conditions. It is generally effective in eliminating pain, reducing muscle spasms, reducing swelling, and most of all increasing a patient’s functionality.
How Cold Lasers Work
The laser is directly placed over the injured areas for a minimum of 30 seconds. Non-thermal photons of light emit from the laser, which passes through the skin’s layers. Once the light energy passes through the layers of skin and reaches the target area, the light absorbs and interacts with the light-sensitive elements in the cell. Then, the cells respond with a physiological reaction to the wavelengths. Overall, this process promotes regeneration at a cellular level to help the body repair itself. While you will feel the device touching your skin, the procedure is non-invasive and painless. There is no vibration, sound, or heat. Additionally, these treatments only take a few minutes.
Common Uses for Cold Laser Therapy
For many years, physicians have been using this treatment on their patients who are seeking effective, alternative methods of pain relief. Overall, the non-invasive and pain-free nature of this procedure makes it very popular among patients. Studies have shown that this treatment is a proven method for pain relief. Low-level Cold Laser Therapy is also effective in relieving certain types of neck pain.
Some of the conditions that can typically be treated via Cold Laser Therapy are:
- Neck Pain
