Benefits of Laser Treatments

Benefits of Laser Treatments

Laser therapy (more specifically, low-level laser therapy or cold laser therapy, although it goes by many names) has been widely used in Europe and Asia for decades and is becoming more and more popular in North America over the past 15 years. This technique uses photons of light to help reduce pain and promote healing for a variety of conditions including arthritis, repetitive stress injuries, soft tissue and sports injuries, and more.

Laser therapy is considered a safe and effective treatment. At Riverlakes we use a state-of-the-art light emitting diode pad in addition to a probe.  This handheld laser provides a longer light exposure shown to be beneficial in over 4000 clinical studies. Using this device, we treat patients with light tuned to very precise wavelengths to positively react with your tissues to help repair injuries. As you might expect from its alternate "cold laser therapy" name, the instrument used isn't going to be heating up your skin but rather using the non-thermal photons of light that pass through your layers of skin and other tissues below. Over a series of treatments, this can provide just the healing you need to recover from a wide variety of common physical issues.

If you're curious about whether low-level laser therapy can be of benefit to you just give us a call and we'll be happy to provide you with some additional information to empower your decision
