What Is a Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold laser therapy, also known as low-level laser treatment or photobiomodulation, is a non-invasive type of treatment used to reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling. It is based on using low levels of light that help stimulate healing. One of the main advantages of this treatment method is that it does not require a surgical incision. At Advantage Spine and Disc, Dr. Ricks can provide quality laser therapy treatment in Boise.
What Does This Treatment Feel Like?
Most patients feel nothing during the treatment session. Sometimes, they may feel a slight tingling sensation that is caused by an increased blood flow in the area.
How Long Does the Therapy Take?
After your initial evaluation, we will prescribe an individualized treatment plan for you. Our cold laser therapy session lasts from five to twenty minutes, depending on the patient’s circumstances. You may feel immediate relief after the first session. However, it does not mean that your condition or injury is fully healed. For optimal results, we recommend completing the whole course that our chiropractor prescribes.
Benefits of the Laser Treatment
- Eliminates pain and reduces inflammation - The treatment helps reduce swelling caused by inflammation. Laser therapy stimulates regeneration and improves joint mobility. It also activates the lymphatic drainage system that also helps reduce inflammation.
- Safe procedure - Since this laser treatment does not use an intense laser, it does not damage the cells. It also does not cause overdose or overstimulation.
- Better wound healing – This treatment helps reduce the formation of scars and improves the reabsorption of fibrotic tissues to speed up the rehabilitation process and recovery.
- Treats arthritis – This treatment is one of the most effective therapies used for treating arthritis. It also reduces inflammation and improves the mobility of the joints.
