Cold Laser Therapy Upper Arlington

cold laser therapy on armCold Laser Therapy, also called Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), is a modality that uses specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and is thought to help speed up the healing process. This therapy can be used on patients who suffer from various acute and chronic conditions to help reduce pain and inflammation and increase function.

How Does LLLT Work?

Cold laser therapy can significantly accelerate and enhance the body’s natural defense and repair mechanisms in the presence of injury, sports and workout injuries, inflammation, and specific disease processes. LLLT consistently provides pain relief, reduces injury damage and loss of function, and facilitates a more rapid repair of damaged tissues, creating stronger, healed tissue structures.

LLLT photo-stimulates specific wavelengths affecting the body’s light-reactive biological cell receptors (chromophores). This modifies the effects of injured tissue and reduces the overall duration of inflammation while enhancing your body’s specific repair and healing mechanisms. The result is decreased pain spasms and increased natural range of motion and flexibility of the injured area(s).

What to Expect

A small handheld device is used during each session. Various wavelengths and outputs of low-level light are applied directly to a targeted area, such as the knee or lower back. The body tissue then absorbs the light, and the red and near-infrared light produce a reaction. The damaged cells respond with a physiological response that promotes regeneration.

Conditions LLLT Can Address

  • Arthritis
  • Back pain
  • Bursitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Heel spurs/plantar fasciitis
  • Joint discomfort
  • Knee pain
  • Muscle discomfort/spasms
  • Neck pain
  • Nerve pain/radiculopathy sciatica
  • Neuropathy
  • Sports injuries
  • Shoulder/rotator cuff injuries
  • Sprain/strain
  • Tendonitis
  • Tennis elbow
  • TMJ pain/dysfunction
  • Trigeminal neuralgia
  • Whiplash

An Alternative to Drugs and Surgery

One of the reasons why cold laser therapy is gaining in popularity is it can provide lasting pain relief, which can help people get off of their pain medication. Cold laser therapy also may help patients avoid surgery. And compared to surgery, LLLT is much more cost-effective.
