What is Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser, or low level laser, is a therapy that uses low-level lasers to alter cellular function. Non-thermal photons of light penetrate the skin to reach the targeted area. It is absorbed and interacts with the light sensitive elements in the cell that initiates a series of events in the cells that result in reduced inflammation, normalization of damaged or injured tissues, and increased intracellular metabolism-which reduces healing time.
Cold laser is used to relieve pain for a wide variety of ailments that include:
Soft tissue injuries
Acute and chronic pain
And many more
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
The therapy is also pain free, drug free, and non-addictive, as opposed to most of the leading treatments, and is performed right in our office. Patients can use cold laser in conjunction with all of our other therapies, and generally are recommended to do so. This therapy only lasts between 10 and 15 minutes each time, which makes it convenient, as well.
