What is cold laser therapy?

Cold laser therapy, or low-level laser therapy, uses low-intensity light energy to boost your body’s natural powers of healing. The energy levels in cold laser therapy aren’t strong enough to heat your tissues but are highly effective at providing natural pain relief.

The Spine Care of Manassas Chiropractic Center team’s cold laser therapy offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Reduced pain
  • No need for medications
  • Ease of use
  • Faster healing
  • Highly effective results
  • Improved quality of life

Cold laser therapy offers a safe alternative to strong pain medications and surgery. It works well as part of a comprehensive treatment plan for a variety of disorders and injuries.

Why might I need cold laser therapy?

You might benefit from cold laser therapy at Spine Care of Manassas Chiropractic Center if you have a problem like:

  • Tendon strain
  • Ligament sprain
  • Healing fracture
  • Tendonitis
  • Sports injury
  • Muscle strains and spasms
  • Swelling
  • Arthritis
  • Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)
  • Bursitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Wound healing

Cold laser therapy is effective for most acute and chronic causes of neck pain, back pain, and joint pain.

To see if cold laser therapy could help you, your Spine Care of Manassas Chiropractic Center provider performs a thorough consultation. This includes a physical exam, a discussion about your medical history and symptoms, and, when necessary, an X-ray or other imaging procedures. 

What does cold laser therapy treatment involve?

Cold laser therapy is completely non-invasive, so you won’t need sedation or an anesthetic. You relax on a comfortable chair or treatment table while your provider applies a hand-held device to the painful or damaged tissues.

The tissues absorb the low-level laser energy the device sends out and responds by beginning a fresh round of cell production. Cold laser therapy only takes a few minutes, and you won’t experience pain or require downtime afterward.

You might require a series of cold laser therapy sessions over a period of time to achieve the best possible healing and long-lasting relief from pain.
