Cold Laser Therapy or Low-level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
Cold Laser Therapy aka. Low-level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a non-invasive, drug-free, and effective solution to several types of musculoskeletal pain. Salud Chiropractic is happy to now offer this cutting-edge treatment to the Rohnert Park community.
How Does Low-level Laser Therapy (LLLT) Work?
FDA-regulated medical lasers penetrate the skin’s layers up to 5 cm below the epidermal surface. This process is completely painless because the lasers are a different class than those used for cutting or cauterizing. When the cold lasers hit the target location, cells absorb the light which stimulates the cells triggering regeneration, healing, and repair.
Your doctor will place a handheld laser over the target area for anywhere from 30 seconds to multiple minutes. The laser dose and session time depend on your symptoms and specific injury. You and your clinician will work together to develop a personalized treatment program.
Most of our patients notice significant pain reduction after about a week or two of consistent treatment. Some patients may only need a handful of sessions over the course of a week while others may require several weeks of treatment.
The Multifaceted Benefits of Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
The low-level lasers used in our Cold Laser Therapy successfully target pain, inflammation, and edema in virtually all types of cells including those of nerves, ligaments, tendons, muscles, bones, and cartilage.
Its analgesic and anti-inflammatory benefits make LLLT an ideal pain treatment for anyone suffering from a broad range of both acute and chronic conditions such as:
- Neck pain
- Low back pain
- Plantar fasciitis
- Joint and muscle stiffness
- Muscle spasms
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Work injuries
- Chronic inflammation
- Auto injuries
- Nerve damage
- Edema and swelling
- Muscle atrophy
- Sports injuries
- Tennis elbow
- Pain from autoimmune conditions
Several studies, including many double-blind with placebos, over the course of many years have documented the effectiveness and safety of LLLT as an efficient alternative to pain medications and surgery.
