Cold Therapy Treatments
Cold Laser Therapy
Cold Laser Therapy is an excellent treatment that is often utilized to treat a wide array of conditions and pain. This therapy allows the body to naturally heal itself by utilizing a combination of electric stimulation and cold laser technology. This low level laser therapy consists of a light-emitting device that can be utilized on many different parts of the body.
In addition to simple back and neck pain, cold laser therapy has been utilized for a number of inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, tendonitis and sprains. The number of conditions that have been notably increased in the usage of this therapy include carpal tunnel syndrome, wound management, shoulder and neck injuries, muscle and joint pain, as well as a long list of others.
Pain Relief – Laser light encourages the body to release more endorphin, a natural pain-killer, and it also reduces or eliminates some of the sources of chronic pain
Reduced Swelling – If you are recovering from an injury but inflammation is getting in the way, cold laser therapy may calm swollen tissue to make it easier for your body to start healing
Faster Healing – By stimulating blood flow and increasing cellular activity, cold laser therapy helps kick-start or speed up the body’s natural regrowth of new cells
Because the laser light only penetrates the surface of the skin, it doesn’t come with the same risks as surgery or hot lasers.
Cryotherapy is a great affordable way to help with muscle spasms in the body. This therapy is well known to help numb painful areas as well as provide a cooling relief to affected soft tissues. The therapy consists of applying cold compresses on to the skin to effectively reduce the temperature of the skin as well as constrict the blood vessels in the area.
If you are suffering from a muscle spasm or just recently had a soft tissue injury, cryotherapy is an excellent way to help reduce swelling and further injury in the early stages of your healing process. You can implement this therapy in the comfort of your own home as well as in the office.
