Cold laser treatment, also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT), is a treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with your tissue. This will assist you with and even accelerate the healing process.
Cold laser treatment can benefit many people. Typically, patients who suffer from acute and chronic conditions will find that cold laser treatment helps eliminate pain and swelling, reduce spasms, and increase functionality.
A cold laser is a handheld device that is about the size of a flashlight. Dr. Madsen will place it directly over your injured area for thirty seconds up to a few minutes. At this time, the non-thermal photons of light that are emitted from the laser will pass through your skin. The light has the ability to penetrate two to five centimeters below your skin.
Cold laser therapy is a non-invasive procedure. You won’t have to take any medications and no surgical incisions are needed. Our patients love cold laser therapy for these reasons.
