What is Cold Laser Therapy?
Laser Therapy is a special type of treatment where we utilize the latest technology in Super Pulsed lasers to help promote natural healing. It works by delivering a specific wavelength of light that penetrates deep into your skin and tissues.
When the light energy passes through your skin and reaches the injured area, the energy is absorbed and interacts with the light-sensitive elements in your cells. When cells absorb this light energy, it will assist with normalizing damaged or injured tissue, reducing pain, inflammation, edema, and overall healing time.
What Does Cold Laser Therapy Treat?
Laser Therapy can help reduce pain and promote quicker healing for many different injuries and symptoms including:
A sprain is a stretch or tear of a ligament, which is the tough band of tissue that connects bones to each other. A strain is a stretch or tear of a muscle or tendon, which is the tough band of tissue that attaches muscles to bones. Both sprains and strains are common injuries that can cause pain, swelling, and limited movement.
Inflammation is the body’s natural response to injury or infection, and is characterized by swelling, redness, heat, and pain. Swelling occurs when fluid accumulates in the tissues, and is often a sign that the body is trying to repair itself. The combination of inflammation and swelling can be quite painful and can limit movement. Laser Therapy may be able to help reduce inflammation and improve symptoms.
Bursitis is a condition that results from inflammation of one or more bursae, which are small, fluid-filled sacs that help lubricate and cushion joints. Bursitis can cause pain, swelling, and stiffness in the affected area, and may limit movement. Laser Therapy may be able to help reduce inflammation and improve symptoms.
Tendonitis is a condition that results from inflammation of one or more tendons. Tendons are the tough bands of tissue that connect muscles to bones. Tendonitis often causes pain, swelling, and stiffness in the affected area, and may limit movement. Cold Laser Therapy may be able to help reduce inflammation and improve symptoms.
Arthritis is a condition that results from inflammation in one or more joints. It can cause pain, swelling, and stiffness in the joint, and may limit movement. Laser Therapy may be able to help reduce inflammation and improve symptoms.
