If you are struggling with chronic pain due to a sports injury or underlying condition like arthritis, laser therapy may offer noticeable pain relief and help damaged tissue heal. Coast Spine and Sports Medicine offers advanced laser therapy for pain relief in Los Angeles and Orange County, CA.
What Is Laser Therapy for Pain?
One of the most modern pain management solutions is the use of laser therapy to help combat inflammation and improve the healing process. Laser therapy goes by many names depending on the technology, but it can include low level laser therapy (LLT), high-intensity laser therapy (HIL), and deep tissue laser therapy. Unlike a surgical laser, cold laser therapy for pain management does not heat the tissue.
During a laser therapy procedure, different outputs and wavelengths of low-level light are applied to a treatment area. Your tissue absorbs the light. Near-infrared and red light can cause a reaction that causes damaged cells to respond to promote regeneration. You will feel the laser device on your skin but the procedure is noninvasive and completely painless.
According to research, LLT can offer short-term pain relief with few, if any, side effects when treating rheumatoid arthritis and knee pain. The pain relief from cold laser therapy can range from mild to significant.
Laser therapy can help reduce inflammation, improve circulation, and support cell health or encourage the production of new tissue.
