Low level laser therapy – also known as cold laser therapy – is a modern way to help patients overcome pain in their backs, necks, and other parts of their bodies. It’s intended to accelerate healing after injury or inflammation, and it ensures that the treated area will continue to function properly. If you’re suffering from chronic back pain, neck pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, or any number of painful conditions, get in touch with us today and schedule a consultation with Dr. Rozenberg to see if cold laser therapy is right for you.

What is a Cold Laser?
Cold laser therapy involves low-intensity light. The energy isn’t enough to heat your body’s tissue – hence the term “cold” laser – but it can penetrate the tissue in order to stimulate the light reactive biological cell receptors in your body. This type of stimulation speeds up the healing process and helps treat inflammation while also reducing pain and spasms. This type of therapy also improves the flexibility of the injured area so that it can eventually start moving normally again.
How Does the Treatment Work?
Each treatment takes about 10 to 15 minutes. The laser is aimed at the affected area in order to treat the damaged cells. The process is not painful and in fact generally causes little to no sensation at all, to the point where you might even doze off. Your treatment plan for cold laser therapy might last several weeks, with 2 to 3 sessions a week during that time. Once the therapy is complete, your body will be healed, and the pain will be gone.
Is Cold Laser Therapy Right for Me?
Cold laser therapy is a safe, noninvasive, painless form of treatment that requires no medication or other preparation. It’s recommended for patients suffering from arthritis, muscle pain, back pain, neck pain, nerve pain, and many other conditions. That said, it is not normally recommended for pregnant women, children, and people with heart conditions or dangerously high blood pressure. We’ll need to perform a thorough check of your health history before moving forward with cold laser therapy.
