Cold Laser Pain Therapy In Brooklyn, NYC

How Effective Is Cold Laser Therapy For Musculoskeletal Pain?

If you experience chronic musculoskeletal pain, then you know how debilitating it can be. Arthritis, shoulder pain, back pain, knee pain can affect your quality of life almost overnight. Medication, steroid injections, and surgery can only do so much.

Cold Laser Therapy is one of the most effective interventions for chronic joint and muscle pain. It has been gaining more attention among Dr. Sardar’s patients in Brooklyn, New York who wants an alternative to surgery and steroid injections.

Cold laser therapy penetrates your deep tissues and targets the painful area directly at the source. The low-level laser triggers a series of biological effects that stimulate your body’s natural healing and regenerative response:

  • Anti-inflammation: The light waves heat and widen your blood vessels. It increases the blood flow to the painful area and reduces swelling.
  • Anesthetic Effect: Laser therapy numbs your nerves and blocks the transmission of pain signals, providing long-lasting pain relief.
  • Healing and Regeneration: The laser energy acts at a cellular level to prompt cell multiplication and regeneration, effectively inducing tissue healing.

What is cold laser therapy?

Cold Laser Therapy, also known as Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), uses low energy laser waves to target and heal injured tissue. It’s the latest therapies practiced in regenerative medicine.

Different laser wavelengths (760–1050nm) allow the energy to target deep tissues, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, and even blood vessels.

Cold laser therapy promotes tissue healing, improves circulation, and quick recovery from acute and chronic pain.

Dr. Henry Sardar is now offering his patients the chance to try out Cold Laser Therapy for themselves, regardless of their insurance coverage. Book a session and experience almost immediate pain relief at PainTherapy Medical Care in Brooklyn, New York.

How Is Cold Laser Therapy For Musculoskeletal Pain Done?

Cold laser therapy is an effective, non-intrusive alternative to surgery and injections. It allows for a non-addicting medical intervention that eliminates the complexities associated with prolonged medication treatment programs.

Once we have analyzed the affected or injured region, Dr. Sardar can determine the correct wavelength (s) and output (s) of the light energy that needs to be applied. The light energy from the K-Laser © is powerful enough to penetrate your skin and into the deep tissues, causing no harm or discomfort.

Wavelengths for moderate pain usually range between 600 nm and 700 nm (nanometers), enough to penetrate superficial tissues. Wavelengths between 780 nm and 950 nm can target deeper injuries and inflammation.

The light energy emits photons that are absorbed by the injured tissue and triggers a series of chemical reactions in your body. As a result, the damaged cells respond with a physiological response. This encourages cell regeneration and healing.

Depending on your condition, the treatment can take 2-3 minutes to complete, but you may need consistent sessions to see maximum results. Afterward, you’re free to continue your everyday routine.

Despite its name, laser therapy is a painless procedure. Most patients even experience significant pain relief after just one session.

Is Cold Laser Therapy Effective?

According to various research, LLLT effectively decreases pain from musculoskeletal and inflammatory conditions. It was proven to be beneficial in treating arthritis, fibromyalgia, muscle pain, and tendonitis.

Cold laser therapy is an effective treatment for treating various musculoskeletal disorders. It provides optimal results for chronic pain that was unresponsive to other therapies.

When combined with other traditional treatments (like physical and occupational therapy), cold laser therapy can boost recovery speed and restore motor function faster.

Using cold laser therapy for pain management is growing increasingly popular in pain medicine, and there are several reasons why:

  • FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved
  • Non-invasive
  • No anesthesia needed
  • Non-pharmacological
  • Minimal risk
