If you suffer from chronic musculoskeletal pain, arthritic joints, nagging injuries, neuropathy, and other painful problems, you need a treatment approach that helps you feel and function better as safely and non-invasively as possible. Dr. Molesky knows how to enhance those benefits even further through complementary techniques. Cold laser (Class IV) therapy could make all the difference in helping you reclaim your quality of life.
What Is Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold laser therapy or photobiomodulation, uses amplified laser delivered in a narrow beam to treat a variety of musculoskeletal ailments. Unlike surgical lasers, cold lasers penetrate the skin without burning or cutting.
The laser reaches into underlying tissues in need of treatment. There, it triggers increased cellular production of an energy source called ATP. Cells can then use this extra energy to rebuild and regenerate themselves.
Cold laser therapy also increases circulation in the tissues receiving treatment. This boost brings more oxygen and other healing ingredients to the cells while also helping tissues expel unwanted fluids or inflammatory byproducts. As a result, you experience a reduction in pain, swelling, and inflammation.
Cold Laser Treatments
Dr. Molesky uses cold laser therapy to treat the following conditions.
- Tendinitis or bursitis
- Neck or low-back pain
- Shoulder pain
- Arm and Leg pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Nerve damage and chronic neurological symptoms
- Fractures or other acute injuries
- Knee, foot, or other joint pain (including arthritis symptoms)
- Sport injuries ( golfers elbow , tennis elbow)
- Disc herniation's
- Chronic muscle spams
Research showed that sufferers from facet joint (spinal) pain who received both chiropractic care and cold laser therapy enjoyed a greater degree of improvement than patients who only received one or the other (or no treatment at all).
What to Expect During and After Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy doesn't cause any discomfort; the treatment itself usually feels warm and soothing. Each treatment you receive may relieve more of your symptoms, which is why we typically recommend a series of treatments. Many patients experience significant relief right away.
