Cold Laser Therapy treatment helps to reduce inflammation, a primary cause for pain. When our tissues are injured, a lack of oxygen and other nutrients may slow the healing process. Toxins accumulate within the tissues, which further blocks the healing process. Thick bands of scar tissue can form across the muscles, inhibiting movement and restricting your body’s natural range of motion.
Cold laser therapy promotes circulation; this fresh blood flow is essential to flushing out toxins and reducing inflammation. This helps to minimize neck and back pain while helping the body heal faster.
While only recently cleared by the FDA for use in the United States, Cold Laser© has been used extensively throughout the world for more than twenty years. Also known as cold laser or phototherapy, Cold Laser© is backed by extensive research with over 500 published studies covering a wide range of conditions.
Cold Laser© has been proven effective in the treatment of a number of soft-tissue injuries, pain, and inflammatory conditions. Recently, this exciting technology was cleared by the FDA for the treatment of pain and stiffness associated with arthritis. This is particularly important and timely in light of recent published concerns regarding the safety of traditional arthritis medications. Treatments are fast and easy to apply. With treatment times generally less than 5 minutes, Cold Laser© is a perfect complement to traditional soft-tissue treatments. Preferably, treatments are administered 2-3 times per week for optimal results.
