Cold Laser Therapy

One of our more effective forms of pain treatment is Cold Laser Therapy.

Mount Pleasant Health Center provides each of our patients with the best in non-surgical pain treatment options. Cold Laser Therapy for pain relief is entirely safe and does not carry the risks and complications associated with long term pain medication use and surgery.

Non-Surgical & Effective!

Cold Laser Therapy uses specific light wavelengths to penetrate damaged tissue and begin the healing process. Our specialists can choose the exact depth that the laser will penetrate in order to target the root of your pain. When the infrared laser comes in contact with the tissue, the body begins to produce adenosine triphosphate, which the cells use for energy. This process stimulates the damaged cells, which then results in healing, reduced inflammation and pain, and improved nerve function and vascular activity.

The number of cold laser treatment for pain sessions required to relieve your pain depends on the severity of your condition. The good news is that because our lasers don’t generate heat, this treatment option is completely painless. While some patients may experience a slight tingling sensation, many feel nothing at all during the process.

Through photobiostimulation of the cells results in:

– Analgesia (Decrease in Pain)
– Inflammation Reduction
– Acceleration in Tissue Repair & Wound Healing
– Angiogenesis (Improves Circulation)
– Increased cellular metabolic activity
– Reduction in fibrosis tissue formation
– Improved nerve function
– Stimulation of immunoregulation
– Stimulation of Acupuncture points
