Did you know that laser treatments have been proven effective to treat pain? Recently, technologies have advanced in laser treatments that can bring much needed relief to your pain.
One of the new treatments is cold laser therapy. A low level light is applied to areas with pain. The light is absorbed by the surrounding tissues, creating a reaction. Cold laser therapy can speed up an injury by triggering a faster regeneration of cells that have been damaged. Cold laser therapy is a great way to manage pain, especially if you want to avoid invasive procedures like surgical treatment.
We have been offering cold laser treatments to our patients in our Manhattan practice as well as here in Springfield. It is a great, non invasive means of helping reduce pain and improve healing times.
Cold laser therapy can treat sprains and minor injuries, inflammation, and for skin renewal.
Minor injuries and sprains:
Cold laser therapy can reduce swelling and pain, while also promoting tissue healing. Many pro athletes have regular cold laser therapy sessions to help keep their body in good shape for their sports season.
Did you know that dentists and physicians both use cold laser therapy? Dentists use it for inflamed tissues in the mouth, while physicians use it for swelling.
Dermatologists also find cold laser therapy useful for issues like dermatitis, edema, sunburn, and skin ulcers. Those who have diabetic wounds can even benefit from it, as it lowers the risk of infections.
So now that you know that cold laser therapy is so versatile, you should also know that it is pain free! A session only takes a few minutes, so fear not if you have a busy schedule or if you have a low pain tolerance. There is also a short recovery time, meaning that you do not need to take a sick leave from your job.
Cold laser therapy is still being studied by various researchers and scientists so that the best and most effective ways to utilize it can be found.
