Doctors have been using low-level light laser therapy (LLLT) for years to treat patients looking for a fast, safe, and effective procedure for pain relief. Laser therapy is a non-invasive treatment that we provide for all-natural pain relief from chronic conditions. For the last 38 years, our doctor has been helping patients in New Jersey find the best solutions for pain management and is skilled in using laser therapy for healing.
Cold Laser Therapy
Also referred to as cold laser therapy, low-level light laser therapy (LLLT) uses specific light wavelengths of light (red and infrared) to provide non-surgical, medication-free pain relief. Laser treatment has many benefits, including reduced therapy time, improved healing time, increased circulation, and decreased swelling.
Cold laser therapy has many other advantages including:
- No surgical incision is required
- No prolonged recovery time
- No medication needed
- No severe side effects when used properly by a doctor
Laser therapy utilizes infrared light on your injury or wounds to heal soft tissue, providing you with relief from acute and chronic pain. Targeting lights of specific wavelengths at areas of your body where you are experiencing pain results in physiological changes in your cells.
Unlike surgical lasers, low-level light lasers gently pass through your skin without breaking the skin's surface or causing discomfort. Laser therapy does not hurt, and many patients describe feeling a sense of warmth over the area that is being treated.
As the photons of light used in laser therapy are only absorbed and utilized by the cells that need them, this treatment does not affect normal tissues. With no known side effects, laser pain therapy is considered one of the safest pain management treatments available.
Laser Therapy for Pain
When applied as treatment, laser pain therapy reduces pain and inflammation and stimulates nerve regeneration, resulting in muscle relaxation and tissue healing. Common conditions we treat with laser include:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Knee pain
- Disc herniations
- Frozen shoulder pain
- Elbow pain
- Joint pain
- Hip pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Sprains and strains
- And many more
The cold lasers used by our chiropractor are placed directly over the site of your injury or pain for a few minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated and the dose needed to promote healing. Laser pain relief is even more effective when combined with other forms of therapy offered at our clinic, such as chiropractic care. Our high-power lasers can deliver a lot of energy in a short amount of time, making laser pain therapy treatments a fast and effective procedure suitable for people with busy schedules.
We use cold laser therapy because it is a proven method for treating and relieving pain symptoms. We believe in a holistic approach to providing long-lasting pain relief without undesirable side effects. Our laser therapy doctor will customize an individualized treatment plan based on the location of your chronic pain or injury.
