June 13, 2019
Cold laser therapy is low-intensity laser therapy that stimulates healing to reduce inflammation, pain, reduce swelling, and accelerating the healing process and strengthening damaged tissue. It uses specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue. The use of cold laser therapy Delray Beach is safe because the low-level of light isn’t enough to heat your body’s tissue. It has the ability to reach tissues up to 2 inches below the skin’s surface.
Duration of Cold Laser Therapy Delray Beach
This laser treatment therapy may last as little as 5 minutes or up to 20 minutes. The total number of treatments you may need is generally 8-15 and it also depends upon many factors which will be evaluated by your physician.
Specific Methods of Cold Laser Therapy
- Wide coverage of deep tissue with laser photons
- Targeting acupuncture trigger points minus the needles
The effects of cold laser therapy depend upon the specified wavelengths of laser and administering below the dose range tend to be ineffective in pain relief.
How Cold Laser Therapy Work
A clinician uses a handheld device often the size of a flashlight and applies outputs of low-level light and different wavelengths directly to the targeted area. The body tissue absorbs the light that passes through the skin layers. The light causes a reaction and the damaged cells respond with a physiological reaction that promotes healing.
Benefits of Therapy
Some studies suggest that cold laser therapy aids in relieving pain from rheumatoid arthritis, acute and chronic neck pain, osteoarthritis, and chronic joint disorders. It is suggested that cold laser therapy is able to reduce pain by lowering the level of biochemical markers and oxidative stress, and the formation of edema and hemorrhage.
