Cold Laser Therapy at Harmony Chiropractic

Dr Curt using laser on patientCold Laser Therapy, which is 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.

Cold laser therapy can be used on patients who suffer from various acute and chronic conditions to help reduce pain and inflammation and increase function.

How Cold Lasers Work

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 low 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 reaction that promotes regeneration.

Conditions It Can Address

  • Arthritis
  • Back pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Knee pain
  • Neck pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Tendonitis

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, the therapy is much more cost-effective.
