Just because you’re dealing with persistent lower back pain, arthritis, carpal tunnel, tendonitis, knee pain, fibromyalgia, chronic headaches, or any other type of ongoing pain issue, it doesn’t mean you’re destined to become dependent on prescription painkillers or undergo surgery. At ProHealth Physical Medicine located in the Studio City area of Los Angeles, Dr. Robert Gonzalez provides cold laser therapy to patients looking for a safe, effective pain management alternative.
Cold laser therapy is a gentle, effective pain relief treatment that involves the use of cutting-edge Class IV cold laser technology, also known as a deep tissue laser. Cold laser therapy works by targeting an area affected by trauma, inflammation, or malfunction with precisely directed, deeply penetrating beams of laser light that stimulate the biochemical reaction of cells to promote healing. Specifically, once the light passes through your skin and reaches the targeted area, it initiates a series of reactions in the cell that eventually help normalize injured tissue to reduce pain, inflammation, and the amount of time it takes to completely heal.
Cold laser therapy is an effective treatment for a wide variety of pain-related conditions because the laser itself stimulates all types of cells, including those that make up muscles, ligaments, cartilage, nerves, and bone. Cold laser therapy is routinely used to dramatically improve pain associated with many common conditions, including:
Cold laser therapy can help with virtually any joint, muscle, circulatory, or inflammatory condition. It’s also a useful alternative for those who want to manage post-surgical pain without medication.
Cold laser therapy is a gentle, in-office treatment that can usually be done in just a few minutes, depending on the size of the area that the practitioner is treating. The laser is a handheld device that’s about the size of a flashlight. Placing it directly over your skin, your dedicated ProHealth practitioner will pass the laser systematically across the treatment area for as little as 30 seconds, or for several minutes, depending on the nature of your condition and the dose of energy being provided by the laser.
This non-invasive treatment is comfortable for most patients and doesn’t require any downtime, meaning you can resume normal activities as soon as it’s over. Although most patients need multiple treatments to achieve optimal pain relief, they can often accomplish it in just five to ten sessions.
