Cold laser therapy is sometimes called low level laser therapy. It is an alternative, non-surgical method of treatment that has existed since the late 1960s. A cold laser is a non-surgical treatment tool used by a licensed physician to help relieve knee pain caused from a knee injury, arthritis, knee pain, degeneration, bursitis of the knee, meniscus tears, chondromalacia patella, tendonitis of the knee, and failed knee surgery.
Using this type of treatment offers many advantages that a patient will not find with other types of treatment. To begin with, this is a non-invasive procedure. There is no surgery involved.
LLLT will naturally not work on anything, however, due to the fact that it treats at a cellular level, it is successful at treating an astounding level of conditions.
Some of the conditions that may typically be treated by cold laser therapy include:
1. Back pain
2. Arthritis pain
3. Fibromyalgia pain
4. Carpal tunnel syndrome
6. Neck pain
7. Knee pain
Low level laser therapy has almost endless applications because of its approach to healing. Many pro athletes utilize laser therapy to reduce their healing times and get them back into the game with less chance of re-injury.
Laser therapy, although still under a lot of experimentation, is a practical and non invasive way to help doctors care for their patients.
