Cold laser therapy is a non-surgical method of treatment that has been used since the late 1960s. It can relieve knee pain caused by a knee injury, arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, and even failed knee surgery.
Cold laser therapy allows patients to experience knee pain relief without knee surgery, medications, or injections. This therapy is non-invasive, there are no harmful side effects and it is completely painless.
How Does It Work?
Cold laser therapy works by using highly focused, specific wavelengths of light to target the area of injury. The light penetrates deeply into the tissue in the form of non-thermal light photons. The light helps stimulate damaged and injured cells' mitochondria. The mitochondria is considered the 'powerhouse' of the cell. By stimulating the mitochondria, the metabolic rate of the cell improves, thereby healing and repairing the tissue at a faster rate.
How Many Treatments Does It Take?
The exact number of treatments depends on the severity of the pain. The effects are cumulative and improve with each treatment. A series of 10 to 30 treatments is usually all it takes for knee pain sufferers to get the most beneficial results. In many cases, relief can be immediate.
