What is Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold laser therapy emits low wave lengths of energizing photons deep into the tissue. The mild intensity allows the photons to penetrate to and activate cells in the damaged area and encourage the healthy tissue to duplicate. Although multiple treatments are often necessary, one usually requires only 10 to 15 minutes, and cold laser therapy is often combined with other treatments like rehabilitation, massage, and chiropractic care.
Who is a Good Candidate for Cold Laser Therapy?
As a result of cold laser therapy’s low intensity waves, it is gentle with very few side effects, meaning it can be used for most patients with chronic or acute pain. This drug-free, surgery-free solution can even be smart for those who have thick scar tissue because the photons can gently break up the cells, providing more range of motion and function as well as more complete healing.
The Benefits of Cold Laser Therapy
In addition to its effectiveness, cold laser therapy treats a wide variety of pain problems, including repetitive use injuries like tennis elbow or carpal tunnel syndrome, sports injuries, sprains and strains, arthritis, and chronic back and knee pain. Also, cold laser therapy comes with the following benefits:
- Faster healing by encouraging healthy cells to regenerate.
- Completely safe and gentle.
- Less pain by blocking pain receptors.
- Reduced inflammation, allowing your body to move around more easily and comfortably.
- Non-invasive treatment without painful surgeries or addictive opioids.
