Cold Laser Therapy
Our office offers low level laser therapy. This device is a low energy laser known as a "cold laser". Through the action of photo-stimulation of light reactive biological receptors (chromophores) in the body, low level laser therapy (LLLT) has demonstrated the ability to significantly accelerate and enhance the body's natural defense and repair components in the presence of injury, inflammation and certain disease processes. By modifying the effects and limiting the duration of inflammation as well as enhancing specific repair and healing processes, LLLT is consistent in providing pain relief, reducing injury damage and loss of function, in addition to facilitating more rapid repair and stronger healed tissue structures.
Low Level Laser Therapy has a wide range of medical uses including use for:
- Hand and wrist pain associated with carpal tunnel syndrome
- Relief of muscle and joint pain
- Muscle spasm
- Relief of stiffness
- Promotion of muscle relaxation
