Laser Pain Relief
Non-Surgical & Effective!
Cold Laser therapy – sometimes known as “class 4” laser therapy – uses specific light wavelengths to penetrate damaged tissue and begin the healing process. Our specialists can choose the exact depth that the laser will penetrate in order to target the root of your pain. When the infrared laser comes in contact with the tissue, the body begins to produce adenosine tri-phosphate, which the cells use for energy. This process stimulates the damaged cells, which then results in healing, reduced inflammation and pain, and improved nerve function and vascular activity.
The number of therapy sessions required to relieve your pain depends on the severity of your condition. The good news is that because Cold lasers don’t generate heat, this treatment option is completely painless. While some patients may experience a slight tingling sensation, many feel nothing at all during the process.
There are many non-invasive methods of pain relief out there that can eliminate discomfort without any recover time. At American Physical Medicine, cold laser therapy is one of the treatments we use to alleviate pain and stimulate healing in our patients. Many people find that they experience immediate results after a short laser therapy session.
