At Functional Health Institute, we are continually looking out for the latest and most innovative techniques to help our patients find relief from neuropathic and chronic pain. One of these procedures is Cold Laser Therapy, or low-level light therapy, which has successfully treated acute and chronic conditions for many years.
Cold Laser Therapy offers a safe, non-invasive treatment that can help with the discomfort by up to 30% after just one treatment. This high-powered therapeutic laser stimulates accelerated healing at various depths, from superficial to extremely deep.
Cold Laser Therapy can be used right after a new injury has occurred to speed healing, restore any disrupted joint function, and stop further damage. Patients who have endured chronic or acute injuries can reap various benefits such as:
Cold Laser Therapy involves using a handheld wand, usually the size of a flashlight, that outputs specific wavelengths of light to accelerate cell generation. Our clinic’s physician will place the laser directly over the area of focus for a few minutes. The visible red light releases frequencies to the focus area. These frequencies can promote healing by increasing the cells’ energy levels and improving communication between tissue cells. Cold Laser Therapy can be used as a stand-alone therapy or injunction with other therapies for optimal results.
