Can Cold Laser Therapy Treat Knee Pain?
Approximately 25% of adults in America suffer from knee pain, making it the most common joint condition in the country.
Your knees may hurt due to injury, arthritis, or mechanical problems. The pain may range from mild to severe, depending on the cause. Either way, the pain may bring you discomfort and even affect your daily life.
Fortunately, you can get effective and non-invasive knee pain treatment, thanks to the cold laser therapy at De Groot Chiropractic Orthopedics in Wilmington.
But what exactly is cold laser therapy and how can it help with your knee pain?
What is Cold Laser Therapy?
Also known as low-level laser therapy, cold laser therapy uses low-level light energy on soft tissues to stimulate self-healing and relieve pain. Different wavelengths are used depending on the nature of your knee damage.
The light from the laser penetrates your tissues and triggers a physiological reaction to reduce inflammation, improve blood circulation, promote cell regeneration, and relieve knee pain.
Cold Laser Therapy Procedure for Knee Pain Treatment
For your first visit, the chiropractor will examine your knee to identify the source of the pain and discomfort. After the diagnosis, the knee pain treatment will begin.
This non-invasive procedure is administered by a small device held close to your knee to allow the light energy to effectively absorb into your tissues. The procedure only takes a few minutes.
