When you hear the word laser, you might automatically think of beams of energy that produce intense, destructive heat. This is not the case when it comes to the laser technology that the pain specialists at Neuro Pain Consultants use. In fact, the technology is called cold laser therapy because the doctors use a very low level of light energy that’s designed to elicit a gentle healing response without heating up your tissue.
These low levels of light are absorbed by the damaged cells in your tissue and spur a regenerative and healing process, rather than destroying the cells with intense heat, forcing your tissue to rebuild from the ground up.
The doctors at Neuro Pain Consultants turn to cold laser therapy to encourage and boost healing and reduce inflammation. Because the therapy is non-invasive, it enjoys a wide range of applications, including:
The doctors also turn to cold laser therapy as an adjunct therapy for chronic pain conditions, such as fibromyalgia, autoimmune diseases (rheumatoid arthritis), and nagging neck or back pain that resists treatment.
There’s no one-size-fits-all treatment protocol when it comes to cold laser therapy. When you sit down with your doctor at Neuro Pain Consultants, they review your medical issue, your lifestyle, and your goals to come up with a customized plan that approaches your problem from many different angles. And cold laser therapy is a great, non-invasive approach that promotes faster healing and repair.
Most patients undergo a course of cold laser treatments, which take only minutes each. The therapy is painless and you’re free to go about your day directly afterward.
As you progress through your treatments, you’ll realize gradual results as your body sets to work to repair damaged cells.
