Cold Laser Therapy Q & A

What is cold laser therapy?

Cold laser therapy is one of the most advanced nonsurgical treatments available for tackling musculoskeletal pain and speeding up the healing process.

Cold lasers produce a targeted beam of light photons that can penetrate as much as 4-5 inches into your tissues. APMI Orthopaedics, Sports Health & Regenerative Medicine uses cold lasers that feature super pulsing technology, which increases the rate of light absorption in your body.

Cold laser therapy stimulates the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in the mitochondria inside your cells. ATP is your body's source of energy, used by your cells to heal and regenerate themselves.

Evidence shows that cold laser therapy can magnify your body's natural healing power, making it an ideal treatment for sports injuries and other musculoskeletal conditions.

What conditions can cold laser therapy treat?

APMI Orthopaedics, Sports Health & Regenerative Medicine uses cold laser therapy to treat a wide variety of conditions:

Joint pain

Cold laser therapy is an effective treatment for shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, ankle, heel, and foot pain arising from tendon strains, ligament sprains, and overuse injuries. It's also valuable for reducing chronic joint pain caused by arthritis.

Neck and back pain

Conditions like sciatica, spinal stenosis, and herniated discs are common causes of back pain that can also cause numbness and tingling in your arms or legs. Cold laser therapy helps heal damaged tissues and reduce the nerve compression causing these symptoms.

Cold laser therapy is also effective for treating muscle strains and spasms and even headaches.

What does cold laser therapy involve?

Cold laser therapy is entirely noninvasive and painless. APMI Orthopaedics, Sports Health & Regenerative Medicine uses the Multi Radiance Medical MR4 Super Pulsed Laser with LaserStim technology.

The MR4 is clinically proven to reduce pain and accelerate soft tissue healing in just a few quick and easy treatments. It uses a system similar to GPS to locate and target microscopic areas of cell damage, giving your provider precise details of the ideal places to treat and how long treatment should last.

Multi Radiance lasers are the only ones that feature super pulsing technology, which delivers deeper penetration into the treatment area. The result is increased healing power without the production of excessive heat that could damage your cells.
