If you are like many people suffering from chronic pain, inflammation, or certain diseases and have tried other more common treatments or therapies without relief, perhaps it’s time to consider FDA-approved Cold Laser Treatment. This kind of therapy can significantly accelerate and enhance your body’s natural defense and repair components.
What is Cold Laser Treatment and how does it work?
Cold Laser Treatment is done with a handheld, noninvasive, light emitting medical device used in the treatment of several soft and connective tissue disorders and certain neurological disorders. Unlike other lasers that produce heat and thermo-destructive laser energy, Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is also known as “cold laser.”
The FDA cleared Cold Laser Therapy as a form of phototherapy or light therapy. The cold laser device produces a beam of light, which is applied over the injured area to stimulate healing in a pain-free manner. The laser light triggers biological reactions in the cells producing chemical substances that are released into the blood flow and carried throughout the body causing some patients to experience relief in more than the treated area.
Here are some of the beneficial results of cold laser treatments:
- Reduces pain through the increase of natural endorphins.
- Reduces inflammation, swelling, redness, pain, and heat.
- Increases circulation and the natural healing process.
- Relaxes tight muscles.
- Allows bones to repair themselves more quickly.
How does Cold Laser Therapy help?
Since Cold Laser Therapy can stimulate all cell types including muscle, ligament, cartilage, nerves, etc., it can be used to treat a variety of conditions including:
- Back, knee, and neck pain
- Arthritis pain
- Joint pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis
- Fibromyalgia pain
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Increases healing after surgery
Low Level Laser Therapy has been used for over 30 years and has proven to be medically sound and effective in significantly accelerating and enhancing the body’s natural defense and ability to self-repair injuries, inflammation, and other diseases. Pain relief, reduction of injury damage, increase in function, more rapid repair and stronger healed tissue structures are all results of Cold Laser Treatment.
Studies have reported the following specific additional benefits of LLLT:
- Enhanced nerve regeneration
- Increased vasodilatation
- Reduced inflammatory duration
- Increased cell metabolism
- Increased pain threshold
- Increased tissue and bone repair
- Increased lymphatic response
- Increased collagen production
