Why Need Cold Laser Therapy?
Does your doctor advise you to have a cold laser therapy for your injury? If so, and if it’s your first time, you may want to know about this first. Cold laser therapy, according to Healthline website, is “low-intensity laser therapy, or laser therapy that uses low levels of light to stimulate healing”. It is one of the most painless therapies. Curious about what cold laser therapy can do? Here are some of them:
- Heals minor injuries
Cold laser therapy helps in healing minor injuries like sprains, muscle injuries, and others. It is commonly used by therapists because it’s effective and no heat will be used.
- Treats wounds
Cold Laser Therapy also works in treating all sorts of wounds, from minor ones up to those who are hard to heal. Though this is not a one-time treatment, regular treating of wounds is made simple.
- Eases pain
Cold laser therapy also helps in easing kinds of pain brought by muscle pain, body pain, chronic pain, etc. Since it’s painless, light coming from the laser will deplete sores from your body to decrease the pain.
- Reduces stiffness
Aside from easing the pain, cold laser therapy works by reducing the stiffness of the muscles. This usually happens to people having arthritis. If you’re having arthritis, this might be the reason why your doctor advises you to undergo this.
Overall, cold laser therapy works for tissue repair. If you think you are experiencing muscle pain or minor injuries, do not hesitate to consult with your trusted therapists.
