Cold Laser Therapy: A Non-Invasive, Painless Way to Treat Muscle & Ligament Sprains!
Low-Level Laser Therapy treatment, commonly referred to as Cold Laser Therapy treatment, is effective for a surprising range of pain disorders!
What does cold laser treatment do? This treatment uses a cold laser pain relief therapy device, meaning its laser does not emit heat. By emitting low-level light that promotes tissue regeneration, LLLT is capable of providing relief for numerous injuries.
Additionally, the treatment process is non-invasive and painless, without any medication. As a result, this makes LLLT optimal for treating mild to moderate injuries, such as muscle and ligament strains.
As many as 30% of all sports injuries in the U.S. are strain injuries, with hamstrings strains being the most common.
In this article, we explore how low-level laser therapy repairs connective tissue and stimulates the release of the body’s natural painkillers (endorphins).
The Benefits of Low-Level Laser Therapy
There are several products in the home healthcare market that come with lofty promises, however, most of them have harsh side effects or provide temporary pain relief.
Low laser therapy is popular in sports healthcare and chiropractic routines because of its ability to treat lower back pain, tennis elbow, ligament and muscle strains, tendonitis, neck pain, knee pain, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, inflammation, and swelling. It repairs joints and heals soft tissue, all the while preventing your condition from worsening with no unpleasant side effects.
The LLLT device is compact and easy to tote around. You can administer it to any area of the body at home or while on the go. Because of the risk-free nature of this device, doctors, physiotherapists, dental surgeons, and other medical practitioners are incorporating this into their patients’ treatment regimens in 2019.
What are the benefits of cold laser therapy?
Treats a versatile range of pain symptoms
Safe, natural, non-invasive and effective
Provides relief without the use of medications
Accelerates recovery without any downtime
Reduces pain caused by musculoskeletal conditions like neck pain, knee injuries, back disorders, hip pain, and shoulder problems
Noticeable results within weeks
Research has shown that hundreds of patients have been released from their pain symptoms and lead a more active lifestyle after undergoing LLLT. In fact, the laser relief satisfaction rate is currently at 89%!
Muscle strains are extremely common mild injuries experienced by a wide variety of people. In fact, athlete injuries consist of up to 55% of acute injuries. Muscle strains occur when muscle tissue ligaments tear, causing muscle trauma and acute pain. Moreover, muscle strains leave muscles vulnerable to re-injury when not properly treated immediately.
The LLLT laser emits light that causes a physiological response in the tissue. This reaction enables the tissue to heal by promoting regeneration. Not only is each session only 5-10 minutes every week, but LLLT therapy prevents long term chronic muscle strains by helping cell renewal and microcirculation.
Muscle spasms affect several kinds of muscles in the body and can further contribute to other health complications. These stem from muscle fatigue, dehydration, and anomalies in electrolytes.
LLLT emits non-thermal light photons that can penetrate deep into the skin’s layers by about 2-5 cms. This light passes the dermis, epidermis and subcutaneous tissue at 830mm to provide the most optimal therapeutic outcome.
The light travels to its target area and is absorbed by the light-sensitive parts of the cell. The cell harnesses this energy to normalize damage of the injured tissue. This, in turn, leads to reduced swelling and inflammation and increases intracellular metabolism.
Ligament strains involve tissues around the joint but are not related to muscle strains. Due to severe stress on the ligament, there is a possibility of it tearing and this results in inflammation, pain, and bruising.
Ligaments sprains could lead to an ankle instability that may make walking quite painful. Recovery could take several weeks, with the possibility of a relapse if the patient isn’t careful.
With LLLT, ligament sprains can safely and naturally be rehabilitated without worrying about a relapse. Tissue regeneration is prompted as the low-light- laser penetrated into the skin and interacts with the damaged cell. This light repairs joints and damaged tissue without affected other healthy cells. You won’t have to worry about the cell being overstimulated as each cell is embedded with a natural ability to resist overstimulation.
