COLD LASER THERAPY also known as Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is quickly becoming the therapeutic modality of choice. The purpose of laser therapy is to bring photons (units of light energy) to injured/damaged cells and tissues. When living cells receive photons they use them to stimulate the mitochondria to accelerate the production of Adenosine-5′-triphosphate (ATP), which is the energy that all living cells require to sustain life. Increased ATP helps injured/sick cells with the healing process. Over 4000, studies have been done validating the benefits of cold laser therapy.
Cold Laser Therapy is effective for treating:
- sprain/strain injuries
- soft tissue injuries
- tennis elbow
- golfer elbow
- neck and back pain
- carpal tunnel syndrome
- shin splints
Montclair chiropractor Dr. Eshanov offers LLLT for patients and highly recommends it. Along with cold laser therapy, the doctor may employ other treatment protocols in order to optimize and expedite healing.
