The Healing Power of Cold Laser Therapy

What does Cold Laser Therapy aka Low Level Therapy do?

It has been scientifically proven to reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling, and accelerate the healing process while strengthening damaged tissue.

There is a wide range of conditions that may be successfully treated:

Back Pain, Neck Pain, Muscle Pain, Contusions, TMJ, Tendonitis, Sinitus, Bursitis, Tennis Elbow, Sciatica, Wound Healing, Plantar Fasciitis, Post Operative Healing, Repetitive Stress Syndrome, Arthritis Osteoporosis and Rheumetoid, Fibromyalgia, and anything that acupuncture can treat.

What is Cold Laser Therapy?

Low-level-laser therapy harnesses and magnifies energy from the invisible spectrum of light. The therapeutic laser gives these photons of light the ability to reach tissues up to 2-3 inches below the skin’s surface. This process delivers energy and therapeutic light into damaged cells, so the process of repair and healing are greatly accelerated.

Is it Safe?

Yes! It has been in use for over 20 years around the world. Hundreds of clinical studies and scientific papers have documented the effectiveness and safety of this therapy.

How long does a treatment take?

Laser treatment may last as little as 5 minutes, or as long as 30 minutes. The total number of treatments is generally 8-15 depending upon many factors which will be evaluated by your physician. It is important to remember that an immediate relief of pain does not mean the condition is fully healed. So, if a course of therapy is suggested, completing all of the treatments will improve your chances of long term success.

When will I feel results?

The actual effect of laser therapy begins at the time of treatment, but generally only becomes noticeable several hours after the treatment. Some patients will feel relief of pain and experience an increased range of motion right away and may take up to 24-30 hours. If the condition being treated is chronic and severe, it may take several treatment sessions to produce a significant noticeable result.

Are the results long lasting?

Laser therapy is about producing a healing effect in the cells and structures of the body. Unlike other therapies which mask or cover up the condition, laser light is actually influencing your body to speed up and strengthen the healing process. The effect of laser therapy is not just temporary relief, it is cumulative over time, so the more treatments you have, the stronger and more permanent the effect. Because laser light interacts with the cells and a natural healing process is generated, the results are quite long lasting. In many cases, the problem may be permanently resolved.
