Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy uses low-level lasers to treat a number of chronic conditions. This sports injury therapy method works by stimulating cells and aiding in the elimination of swelling and pain. Other applications include the reduction of spasms and improved functionality and movement. Cold laser therapy can penetrate the skin as deep as five centimeters.
When the light-sensitive elements in a tissue are stimulated using cold laser therapy, it creates a reaction. This reaction prompts the tissue to effectively begin healing, which speeds up the process and can also significantly reduce scarring. In double-blind placebo studies, cold laser therapy has been proven effective in treating pain, time and time again.
Cold laser therapy can be applied to any type of tissue in the body, making it a beneficial pain management treatment for a number of conditions. However, there are a particular number of conditions where patients consistently report the most benefits.
This therapy is used in the treatment of acute and chronic pain. Common conditions that are treated with cold laser therapy include arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia and tendonitis. We can also use cold laser therapy to treat general knee, back and neck pain.
We highly recommend that patients who suffer from acute or chronic pain give cold laser therapy a try. This is a non-invasive treatment, so you will not feel any pain during your session. Georgia Spinal Health & Wellness can also use cold laser therapy as an aid to healing in conjunction with other treatments that we provide. Our aim is to give you the best chance to heal quickly and effectively as part of your rehabilitation.
