Cold Laser Q & A
Cold laser therapy uses light energy to improve your natural healing process. This safe, effective therapy can alleviate many types of chronic pain that affect your neck, heels, and shoulders, or pain that persists after surgery.
Additionally, this noninvasive treatment can improve your overall functionality and help you recover after an injury. Following a cold laser therapy plan, the team at Genesis Integrative Medicine can help you achieve goals like:
- Faster recovery time
- Increased range of motion
- Enhanced cellular function
- Regeneration of damaged tissue
- Reduced pain and inflammation
Not only can cold laser therapy immediately address pain and mobility issues, but the results can last for the long term. In some cases, laser treatments can delay or prevent the need for surgery.
Your Genesis Integrative Medicine provider uses a hand-held device to deliver specific wavelengths of light energy through the skin and into the area of injury.
The deep layers of tissue beneath the skin’s surface absorb the light energy, triggering the body’s natural healing response to repair damaged tissue and reduce existing inflammation. As a result, your pain decreases while your mobility increases.
Treatment is fast and painless, requiring no incisions or other invasive procedures. This reduces your risk for surgical complications, such as infections or reactions to anesthesia.
To determine if you’re a good candidate for cold laser therapy, your Genesis Integrative Medicine provider reviews your medical history and performs a physical exam.
Depending on the nature of your injury or your medical condition, your provider may recommend cold laser therapy, as well as other therapeutic techniques, like physical therapy, chiropractic care, or regenerative medicine.
Your Genesis Integrative Medicine provider also creates a timeline for additional treatments to ensure you receive the maximum benefit. They follow your progress and how well cold laser therapy is relieving your symptoms throughout your treatment.
