Using Modern Technology to Help Your Body Heal

Low-level laser therapy – also known as cold laser therapy – is a modern way to help patients overcome pain in their backs, necks, and other parts of their bodies. It’s intended to accelerate healing after injury or inflammation and ensures that the treated area will continue to function properly. If you’re suffering from chronic back pain, neck pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, or any number of painful conditions, get in touch with us today and schedule a consultation with Dr. Rozenberg to see if cold laser therapy in our Culver City, CA chiropractic office is right for you.

What is a Cold Laser?

Cold laser therapy involves low-intensity light. The energy isn’t enough to heat your body’s tissue – hence the term “cold” laser – but it can penetrate the tissue to stimulate the light-reactive biological cell receptors in your body. This stimulation speeds up the healing process and helps treat inflammation while reducing pain and spasms. This therapy also improves the flexibility of the injured area so that it can eventually start moving normally again.

How Does the Treatment Work?

Each treatment takes about 10 to 15 minutes. The laser is aimed at the affected area to treat the damaged cells. The process is not painful and generally causes little to no sensation at all, to the point where you might even doze off. Your treatment plan for cold laser therapy might last several weeks, with 2 to 3 sessions a week. Once the therapy is complete, your body will be healed, and the pain will be gone.

Is Cold Laser Therapy Right for Me?

Cold laser therapy is a safe, non-invasive, painless treatment requiring no medication or other preparation. It’s recommended for arthritis, muscle pain, back pain, neck pain, nerve pain, and many other conditions. That said, it is not normally recommended for pregnant women, children, and people with heart conditions or dangerously high blood pressure. We’ll need to thoroughly check your health history before moving forward with cold laser therapy.

What Can Cold Laser Therapy Heal?

Cold laser therapy is a treatment that can be used for a wide variety of conditions. It is a painless, non-invasive treatment that uses low levels of laser light to stimulate healing. Cold laser therapy is effective in the healing of:

  • Tendinitis
  • Bursitis
  • Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Knee pain

How Can I Ensure Optimal Results?

Cold laser therapy doesn’t involve any downtime or harsh side effects. You can resume most of your daily activities like usual. Aftercare instructions vary depending on the reason for your cold laser therapy. Instructions may include:

  • Using ice or a cold pack to reduce swelling
  • Taking over-the-counter pain relievers for discomfort
  • Elevating the treated area to reduce swelling
  • Avoiding strenuous activity for 24-48 hours
  • Wearing a compression garment as directed

Recovery After Cold Laser Therapy

In general, cold laser therapy is a very safe and effective treatment with few side effects. The most common side effect is temporary redness or swelling at the treatment site. Recovery time is usually very brief, with most people able to return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment. There is no downtime or aftercare required. However, if you have any concerns, talk to your doctor or medical provider.
