Laser therapy is a non-invasive method used by pain management clinics to relieve inflammation, reduce pain, and promote healing. By converting highly focused light into biochemical energy, laser therapy promotes normal, healthy cellular function.
Pain management clinics that use laser therapy can avoid drugs and surgery while offering patients safe, effective and often immediate pain relief. Laser therapy soothes the affected area with a feeling of warmth, but typically uses what’s known as a cold laser – a medical laser with a power range of 5 mw to 500 mw.
Cold lasers and deep tissue lasers involve one or more sessions of short duration. Some medical insurance covers this treatment at pain management clinics.
