Cold Laser Therapy
Reduce Pain With Cold Laser Therapy in Naperville
Cold laser therapy, also referred to as Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is used to treat a number of ailments, including:
- Back pain
- Temporomandibular disorder (chronic jaw pain)
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Diabetic neuropathy
- Leg ulcers
Unlike destructive “hot” lasers, low level “cold” lasers rejuvenate and reenergize the cells of the body. Using cold lasers for pain is noninvasive and does not incur any additional pain on the patient. LLLT allows for total regeneration of the cells at minimal destruction and additional damage to the affected areas. Cold lasers increase ATP production within the body, creating more energy for the body to heal.
LLLT treatment will feel like a slight tingling from the interaction of the lasers with the cells of the body. As these types of lasers do not produce heat you will not experience a burn or any type of cell destruction while undergoing therapy.
Treatment Sessions Needed for Recovery
Each treatment typically lasts between 5 and 15 minutes, depending on your specific needs. The number of LLLT sessions needed could be 8 to 12 based on the conclusions of your doctor. Pain relief does not necessarily indicate full recovery; we recommend that you complete the full prescribed treatment cycle to encourage the viability of the treatment.
When Can I Expect to See/Feel Results?
Some patients notice a difference immediately. For others, it can take multiple treatments before results are experienced. Your individual results will depend on a number of factors, including the severity of the problem being treated, your body’s ability to recover from injury and any other conditions which may be affecting your health.
How Long Do the Results Last?
LLLT implements an actual change in the body and promotes a permanently stronger solution to reducing your pain symptoms. At the end of your treatment cycle, existing body cells are reinforced by the laser treatments and the more you experience the stronger the effect. LLLT works as a therapy by itself and also increases the efficacy of other therapies. By increasing the amount of energy, the cells have access to, the pain goes away faster, repair happens quicker, and tissue repairs itself more completely.
