Cold Laser Therapy
Relieves Pain & Inflammation
and Stimulates Natural Healing
What is Cold Laser Therapy?
Also known as low level laser therapy (LLLT), cold laser therapy is the use of therapeutic laser light to provide relief from pain, eliminate swelling, and to repair damaged tissues.
Infrared laser therapy is used for treatment and healing of bone, ligament, muscle, and tendons. Laser therapy reduces pain and inflammation and accelerates healing.
This procedure is entirely noninvasive and has a wide range of applications ranging from neural muscular skeletal conditions to wound healing and acupuncture treatments.
Cold Laser vs Surgical (or Hot) Laser
Rather than destroying tissue the way a surgical (or hot) laser does, cold lasers use low intensity light energy to stimulate the cells that they target and encourage healing.
How Cold Laser Therapy Works
The lasers supply the body with billions of photons of light at very specific wavelengths. Cells absorb the light and transform it into chemical energy which the body uses to naturally repair itself.
Circulation is stimulated, which protects cells against injury and helps re-balance the immune system. The process reduces inflammation and brings much needed oxygen to the tissue.
The laser promotes re-balancing of the chemical ions and neurons associated with pain transmission. The pain signal is removed right at its source.
What to Expect
The procedure uses no drugs, no toxins, and is noninvasive.
During your treatment, Dr. Mian and his staff will make sure you are comfortable in the laser treatment area.
The staff will discuss your individual needs and walk you through the laser settings and what to expect.
When the laser is applied to the treatment area, most patients feel no pain at all. Some patients report a warm sensation.
