Cold Laser Therapy Q & A
What is cold laser therapy?
Cold laser therapy is a nonsurgical treatment that uses advanced technology to reduce pain and stimulate your body’s natural healing process. It’s simple, safe, and painless and provides results without side effects.
The experts at APMI Wellness Center use cold laser therapy to treat collegiate, professional, and Olympic athletes.
How does cold laser therapy work?
Cold laser therapy emits focused, low-level beams of laser energy that have the ability to penetrate deep into your tissue.
The APMI Wellness Center team uses the MR4® LaserStim™ super-pulsed laser for cold laser therapy. This advanced laser tool uses super-pulsed technology that increases the rate of light absorption by your body to enhance the effects.
When the laser light reaches the mitochondria in your cells, it stimulates the production of energy. Your cells, tissues, and organs use this energy to detoxify, regenerate, and rebuild the damaged area.
Who benefits from cold laser therapy?
When you visit APMI Wellness Center for a cold laser therapy consultation, your provider conducts an in-depth clinical exam to determine if the innovative treatment is the right choice for you.
You may benefit from cold laser therapy if you’re suffering from a musculoskeletal injury or another condition that causes pain and inflammation.
These conditions include:
Sprains and strains
Cold laser therapy also benefits those suffering from other types of joint pain as well as inflammation and swelling.
What happens during cold laser therapy?
Cold laser therapy is an in-office treatment that takes only a few minutes. Though you may feel the laser tool when it touches your skin, cold laser therapy is a painless procedure.
During your session, your provider at APMI Wellness Center places the handheld laser tool on the desired area and transmits the laser energy.
There’s no downtime following cold laser therapy, and you can resume your usual activities after treatment.
When you come for your laser therapy consultation, your provider creates a personalized treatment plan for you, which helps you know what to expect from your treatment.
To gain the most healing benefits from your therapy, you may need a series of treatments. In general, you may need up to eight sessions over 2-4 weeks.
Don’t let your pain keep you from doing the things you enjoy. Call APMI Wellness Center or book an appointment online to learn more about the healing powers of cold laser therapy.
