Cold laser therapy is a non-invasive procedure, which means no surgical incisions are required. This means that there is no long recovery time. Laser therapy also does not involve medication and many patients prefer to avoid medication. Studies have shown that cold laser therapy has no serious side effects when used properly by doctors.
Cold laser therapy has been shown to relieve mild to moderate knee pain and improve joint tenderness and flexibility. You can learn more about cold laser treatment from sheldonwellness.com/services/cold-laser-therapy/.
Cold laser therapy can also:
- Open blood vessels to reduce swelling
- Help your immune system create more tissue-healing chemicals
- Builds more connective tissue in the knee
- It triggers endorphins, natural pain-relieving hormones
Non-drug alternative- Cold laser therapy is an opioid alternative for knee pain. Opioids can be highly addictive for chronic pain and cause side effects such as constipation, nausea, or drowsiness.
Non-invasive- Cold laser therapy doesn't cut through your skin to treat knee pain, so it's not as invasive as surgery.
Few side effects- Cold laser therapy for knee pain has no side effects.
The results of cold laser therapy may vary depending on the cause of your knee pain, other medical conditions you have, or the laser treatment or device used. There is no standardized dose or approach for cold laser therapy, so results may vary.
