Pain Relief Using Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy uses light energy to reduce inflammation and stimulate cellular activity. It helps treat lower back pain and knee pain from osteoarthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, and tendinitis. The process of cold laser therapy was developed in the 1960s and is sometimes also referred to as photobiomodulation therapy or soft laser therapy.

What People Are Saying About Cold Laser Therapy and Treatments for Smoking
“Thanks to Malti and her program, I have been completely smoke and nicotine free for over 8 months. I had tried to quit on previous occasions and even stopped smoking for approximately 7 years. My cigarette consumption had declined but my vaping increased! When my husband’s health took a turn for the worse it was clear that we both needed to stop smoking fast! My husbands cousin did Malti’s program and has been smoke free for over a year. After 42 years of smoking, I am finally free.
Thank you, Malti!” – Marilyn W.
What is Cold Laser Therapy?Cold laser treatment uses diodes that emit low near-infrared or red light levels to target deep tissue. The light kickstarts the body’s energy at a cellular level, speeding the healing process and promoting healthy cell regeneration and tissue repair. Cold laser therapy may also decrease pain by stimulating hormone production or inhibiting neurochemicals. Different wavelengths of laser have other effects. Experienced technicians can determine the appropriate wavelength based on treatment goals. For example, cold laser treatment can treat various conditions by addressing root causes and enhancing the body’s natural healing processes. Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is another name used for cold laser therapy. When used at therapeutic wavelengths, laser light relieves pain and reduces swelling in inflammation. Laser is designed to treat many conditions, including pain and stiffness caused by arthritis, back pain, or tendonitis. It can also be used to treat general muscle and joint pain. Clinical studies show that many people have benefitted from regular cold laser therapy treatments with no known side effects, a bonus. Cold laser therapy used at low levels is also designed to treat many skin conditions. For example, it can reduce pigmentation, scarring, and wrinkles. Inflammation is a body’s protective mechanism. However, when it goes into overdrive, blood flow and oxygen are restricted, and there can be pain, stiffness, and other problems. In addition, prolonged inflammation can lead to additional severe health issues. Cold laser therapy can penetrate the tissue and work on a deep level to help the body overcome its protective mechanism. As a result, inflammation is reduced, and circulation is improved, resulting in pain relief and minor swelling and stiffness. As a result, laser treatments can help you feel more energetic, move more freely, and enjoy a better quality of life.
How Can Cold Laser Therapy Treat Pain?
Cold laser therapy, or “cold light,” is a non-invasive treatment. The therapy can reduce inflammation and pain and treat a wide range of painful conditions such as osteoarthritis, tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and rheumatoid arthritis. Cold laser therapy was developed in the 1960s. It is also known as soft laser therapy and photobiomodulation therapy.
Cold laser therapy works by shining a diode over the area of pain. It is called “cold” because the laser does not involve heat or vibration, like lasers used to do surgery. Because it is 100% safe and all-natural, it can be administered up to four times per week.
Results can happen quickly, but you can receive anywhere from eight to thirty sessions for more severe issues. Unfortunately, Medicare does not cover cold laser therapy. Still, some major insurance companies protect it because the medical community accepts that it is an effective treatment option to speed healing, especially after surgery or injury. Laser therapy is quick and effective and helps people get back to their normal activities quicker.
Low-level therapy is considered very safe, and there are no known side effects, but for severe issues, you may want to consult your doctor before you start.
Cold laser therapy is non-invasive and great for pain relief because it stimulates cell activity in the body. This is beneficial, especially for arthritis, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, tendonitis, and general joint and muscle pain.
Clinical studies show an excellent alternative to prescription medications and surgery; cold laser therapy treatments have many benefits and carry little to no risk for some conditions.
Common Prescription Medications For Pain
Cold laser therapy is an effective way to treat pain without using pain medications. It is safe enough to be used while on the operating table or during recovery. It can also be done in the hospital on the same day as surgery. This treatment has many benefits, including reducing swelling and pain and promoting the healing of joints and soft tissues. In addition, cold laser therapy can be done during the time in the hospital that is already reserved for surgery.
Cold laser therapy is an effective and safe method of pain management that does not require the use of dangerous opioids. Prescription pain medications can lead to addiction, have terrible side effects, or make you unable to drive or go to work.
Cold laser treatments can eliminate the need to take prescription medications, which can be addictive and harmful. Low-level light therapy Is designed to reduce the pain caused by many different conditions and can even be used as an alternative to surgery if your doctor recommends it.
Although some cases require only a few visits, more might be needed in some instances. Multiple visits are considered perfectly safe. The number of appointments recommended will depend, in part, on the cause of your pain and how it might affect your quality of life. Each session of cold laser therapy takes approximately 10 to 30 minutes. However, there is no guarantee of immediate improvement after the first treatment. Complete relief may take several sessions. However, once achieved, the benefits tend to last a long time.
The Problems with Pain Medications
There are many types of pain. Cold laser treatment is increasingly recommended as a popular and effective option. For knee pain, for example, a practitioner will send short pulses of light into the knee, deep into the tissue and joint cavity. Vibrations may last anywhere from 30 to 60 seconds. The stimulation increases circulation and relaxes muscle tissue. This reduces pain and increases the range of motion. To see results with knee injuries, it can take up to six treatments or more. It is essential to consult your doctor before beginning treatment, and laser therapy for a knee injury is no exception. Different conditions respond differently to the therapy, of course.
Low-level lasers have immunosuppressive and anti-inflammatory effects. This light is absorbed by the body and produces positive results throughout the entire body. Because cold laser light penetrates deep into the body, it provides vital oxygen and energy to every cell. The laser light is specially designed to convert chemical energy into power and promote healing in the body. Cold Laser Therapy is a treatment that reduces inflammation and speeds up the body’s natural healing process.
Cold laser therapy can have disadvantages that may discourage people from using it. Most people experience temporary numbing. While cold laser therapy is effective for most types of pain, it may take several sessions to notice results. It is essential to discuss cold laser therapy with your doctor beforehand and determine whether it is correct. Although cold laser therapy has fewer disadvantages than other forms of treatment, it is still recommended for specific pain conditions.
Benefits of Laser Therapy for Pain Relief
The low-power, cold laser therapy used in complex laser clinics is an alternative to medication and surgery. It uses low-level lasers to penetrate the skin and stimulate the body’s natural pain-relief processes. Although the therapy is non-invasive, it does not produce heat. However, some patients experience a slight tingling sensation. The procedure effectively treats chronic injuries, such as osteoarthritis and tendonitis.
While cold laser therapy cannot treat any disease, it can be an alternative to many medications. The treatment involves holding a laser diode over the affected tissue. Cold laser therapy is a non-heat or vibration-producing treatment that has been used for over thirty years. Patients experience significant pain relief within three to five sessions, though some conditions may require up to twenty sessions to achieve complete comfort.
Cold laser therapy also promotes faster healing and reduces inflammation. It is more effective than medication for patients who experience chronic pain due to unrepaired tissue injuries. The treatments can be enjoyable, mainly when the laser “massage ball” is used to treat patients.
