What is Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold laser therapy is a therapy that stimulates healing by using low levels of light. It is low intensity because the lasers do not get hot enough to heat the tissues in the body. It is also referred to as low-level laser therapy or soft laser biostimulation. Varying wavelengths of light outputs are directly applied to specific areas of the body. The tissue in your body absorbs this light. The light causes a reaction in the tissue and the damaged cells have a reaction that allows the cells to regenerate. The laser does touch the skin, but it is painless. If you live near the Pensacola area and you’re interested in cold laser therapy, contact Scenic Health & Chiropractic.
The Conditions & Pains Cold Laser Therapy Treats
Our chiropractor uses cold laser therapy to help repair tissue, provide relief from pain, and reduce inflammation. It can be used to treat minor injuries and sprains including neck, knee, and back pain. This type of treatment is great for inflammation from autoimmune diseases and rheumatoid arthritis. It is also known to treat chronic pain that is caused by carpal tunnel syndrome and fibromyalgia. Cold laser therapy has also been used to treat traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries.
The Benefits of Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy provides a non-invasive reduction of inflammation and there is also no recovery time. There is no medication associated with this type of therapy which is good news for patients who want to remain drug-free. There are no side effects associated with cold laser therapy.
