Cold Laser Therapy: Effective Pain Management Strategy
Cold laser therapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure with little to no recovery time. It’s ideal for patients seeking drug-free pain relief. Be it arthritis, sports injury, neuropathy, fibromyalgia or more, we at Ortho Injury and Wellness Center want to help you take advantage of this effective pain management strategy.
Cold Laser Therapy Works Its Magic At the Cellular Level
Also called Low-level laser therapy (LLLT), cold laser therapy is a form of light therapy that stimulates regenerative activity at the cellular level. It’s been shown to relieve pain by reducing inflammation, lowering oxidative stress, and reducing swelling and hemorrhaging. This form of treatment is even well tolerated by the elderly.
Cold laser therapy is FDA approved and is proven to treat:
- Sprains and strains
- Post-surgical pain
- Whiplash injury
- Neck and back pain
- And a whole lot more
The Cold Laser Therapy Treatment Process
Cold laser treatments involve the application applying light at specific wavelengths to an affected area for 30 seconds to several minutes. It all depends on the size of the treated area and the laser dose. On average it takes 6-20 sessions for most conditions. Most people notice improvement within the first 1-2 visits. More severe conditions take 3-8 sessions to feel the difference.
