Is chronic pain disrupting your daily life? Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) also known as cold laser therapy has shown effectiveness in treating pain and inflammation. Our medical clinic offers this safe, non-invasive pain relief treatment that works by stimulating cellular energy and increasing the presence of growth factors.
Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy is a non-surgical technique using light to stimulate healing. An alternative pain relief treatment, deep tissue laser therapy uses different wavelengths of light and power settings, depending on the type of condition being treated. Concentrated beams of light pass through your skin and penetrate deeply into your damaged tissue, promoting healing without side effects and risks of burning the skin.
Advantages of cold laser therapy include:
- Easily applied
- Highly effective
- Virtually no side effects
- Multiple areas can be treated at a time
- Can be used to treat large areas
- Does not produce heat like surgical lasers
After a physical assessment to diagnose your injury or areas requiring treatment, our doctor designs a treatment plan that may combine laser treatment with other non-surgical pain relief therapies. Treatments are pain-free and completed as a same-day outpatient procedure in our doctor's office. Your course of treatment depends on the type and severity of your condition.
Cold laser therapy is also used to support the body’s ability to heal regarding acute inflammation, tissue infections, and joint and muscle injuries. Laser therapy is used to treat a range of musculoskeletal conditions, including:
- Chronic back pain
- Neck pain
- Sprains and strains
- Carpal tunnel
- Achilles tendonitis
- Frozen shoulder
- Joint pain and joint disorders
- Muscle pain
- Nerve pain
- Poor wound healing
- Tennis and golfer’s elbow
