At the Migraine Headache Relief Center of Nourifo we treat chronic daily headaches and debilitating migraines, as well as a host of other pain conditions ranging from face pain to chronic muscular tension. One of the physical medicine modalities we use to produce long-term results is low-level cold laser treatment.
A Primer on Cold Laser Treatment
Cold laser treatment has been carefully studied by the medical community for about 30 years now. However, it wasn’t until 2001 that the FDA cleared the first cold laser devices for use in treating medical conditions. Today, alternative healthcare practices, chiropractors, physical therapists, doctors, and dentists alike are offering patients cold laser treatment for conditions requiring pain reduction and rapid healing. Cold laser has become a strong alternative to invasive procedures and long-term medication use.
Cold lasers can be used used by clinicians to target trigger points, tissue, and bone with red light photons (infrared) to encourage faster and more complete healing to injuries. However, low-level cold laser application can also reduce or eliminate pain. In fact, the sophisticated cold laser devices we use now can be incredibly useful for treating a wide variety of conditions.
Uses for Cold Laser Application
Pain reduction, both acute and chronic – wide variety of types
Sprains of ligaments and moderate to severe muscle strains
Numerous types of injuries to soft tissue
Tendonitis, Arthritis, Bursitis, and even Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Neuromuscular force imbalances of the Dentomandibular Complex
When and why does cold laser application make sense?
Cold lasers represent an effective alternative treatment option to invasive surgical procedures and medication use. Both pharmaceutical and surgical options increase the risk factors for patients. In the case of invasive surgery, the risk that the procedure does not work as well as planned — or even at all — is ever present. Additionally, surgery introduces the potential for infections that can lead to other problems. In a wide variety of cases, cold laser would be preferable to surgical options.
Cold laser application also provides a compelling solution for eliminating pain where normally the prescribed solution would involve medications that mask symptoms and produce only temporary relief. Pain medications are often narcotic and too frequently addictive. Medications can also leave the user in a drug-induced state, decreasing their efficiency, productivity, mental alertness and comfort. It isn’t hard to understand why patients would want to avoid constant drug use for pain, and with cold laser pain relief can be achieved naturally. Thousands of studies have been conducted to validate the efficacy and effectiveness of cold laser application.
Cold Laser Benefits
Application of cold laser is safe and simple
Non-toxic — it does not hurt and there are no prevalent side effects
Physically non-intrusive – reduces need for surgical procedures
Cheaper — surgeries and long-term medication use are expensive options
Highly effective treatment (over 90% of patients who receive cold laser experience improvement)
In conjunction with other physical medicine modalities like massage, electrical stim, ultrasound, etc., cold laser application is even more effective.
Effects of Cold Laser on the Body
Laser photons rapidly increase cellular reproduction and growth
Using photons promotes increases in certain types of enzymes; increases oxygen and nutrients to cells; strengthens production of Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP), a primary food source for cells
Rapid healing of damaged tissue through stronger fibroblast development and accelerated collagen synthesis
Photons from the laser reduce swelling and inflammation, both in joints and muscles
Blood flow increases to damaged and strained areas via temporary vasodilation
Scar tissue and fibrous tissue formation is broken down
Photon exposure promotes nerve cell reconnection and stimulation, and can even reduce numbness associated with nerve damage
Acute and chronic pain are both reduced, and often eliminated
Rehabilitation experienced tends to be long-term, as opposed to medication use
Is cold laser treatment right for you?
For most patients it is, but it depends on your specific diagnosis and condition. We employ low-level cold laser application frequently when treating chronic daily headaches, severe migraines with or without aura, cluster headaches, tension headaches, chronic head and neck tension, orofacial pain, and TMJ-related issues.
If you’ve tried other things and want to explore non-invasive options for long-term pain relief call Nourifo today and schedule a comprehensive diagnostic exam. We’ll not only be able to tell you if neuromuscular force problems are causing your pain, but also if cold laser makes sense for YOU!
