Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy is an alternative, non-invasive treatment method cleared by the FDA in 2001 for adjunctive use by a licensed practitioner in pain relief and accelerated healing. Since then, there are hundreds of clinical reports that support the usefulness of cold laser therapy for accelerated pain relief. It has become a viable, non-surgical treatment option for those in search of alternatives to conventional methods that may have failed them in the past. Unlike surgery and injections, cold laser therapy is painless and does not cause any harmful side effects.

How Does Cold Laser Therapy Work?
REHABILITY’S cold laser unit (Dynatron x3) allows for an application of red and near infrared light over an injured area to improve soft tissue healing and relieve both chronic and acute pain. Non-heat producing or “cold” laser light energy directs energy to the body’s cells without injuring them. Near infrared light waves, like that of Cold Laser Therapy, penetrates the deepest of all visible light waves, which optimizes positive healing effects in the body.
Laser therapy works at the cellular level. When damaged cells are positively stimulated within a controlled environment, laser and light therapy can accelerate healing and increase new blood circulation in most injuries and/or conditions that contain an inflamed soft tissue component. Cold Laser Therapy is of particular benefit when treating soft tissue injuries of all kinds, various inflammatory conditions, and associated pain syndromes. It is not uncommon to see a reduction in pain immediately following, or shortly after a cold laser therapy treatment. The treatments are fast, painless, and simple to administer and with few contraindications.
Based on each individual condition or injury, Cold Laser Therapy may be incorporated into the treatment plan to compliment any of our other integrated therapies, facilitating pain relief and accelerating healing. For more information, Contact REHABILITY in Freehold at Freehold, NJ center.
