Cold laser therapy is a new method for managing back pain and other health conditions. It can be a very beneficial treatment for patients struggling with ailments that decrease their quality of life.
For a better understanding of the benefits associated with cold laser therapy, check out these five benefits of this new approach to pain management:
1. Relief for a Variety of Conditions
Cold laser therapy can alleviate pain associated with tendonitis, fibromyalgia, reflex sympathetic dystrophy, and musculoskeletal pain, and has become a popular way to treat pain from arthritis. The therapy can decrease inflammation, alleviate stiffness, and improve flexibility for those suffering from arthritis. In addition, those who suffer from cerebral palsy, chronic migraines, carpal tunnel syndrome, and high blood pressure have said cold laser therapy can relieve pain and promote comprehensive healing as well. Other studies have shown that cold laser therapy can even help individuals quit smoking by inciting endorphin release.
One of the best advantages of cold laser therapy is that it’s not an invasive procedure, which means it can be done without surgical incision. It is also painless and does not involve sedation or anesthesia. With no additional discomfort or recovery time involved, cold laser therapy is a comfortable and convenient option for those who struggle with chronic or acute pain.
3. Non-Addictive Treatment
Cold laser therapy is a non-addicting method of soothing chronic pain, which can protect patients from the potential issues of long term drug use for pain management such as addiction and dependence.
4. No Medications Necessary
For those who would simply prefer to not use pharmaceutical drugs on a daily basis as a means of treating pain, cold laser therapy can be a viable means of eliminating their need for medication usage. Even though patients can still take medications while undergoing cold laser therapy treatments, the process itself does not necessitate the consumption of any additional medications, making it the perfect choice for those who do not want to take medications regularly to alleviate their pain.
5. Lack of Severe Side Effects
Opting to undergo cold laser therapy is a great option for individuals who are prone to negative side effects from more invasive procedures like shots or injections or from medications. Cold laser therapy can offer patients pain relief without the assortment of unpleasant side effects associated with injections and pills, such as nausea, headaches, or allergic reactions. Besides eliminating harmful side effects of invasive and medicinal approaches, this procedure does not cause scarring or damage surrounding body tissues.
