Laser Treatment for Pain
Cold Laser Therapy, also known as Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) is one of the most important developments in health and wellness. We utilize Cold Laser Therapy to dramatically reduce musculoskeletal pain and inflammation as well as promote tissue repair in targeted areas. Because this is a cold laser and not a heat treatment, it does not have any of the risks associated with other types of lasers. Currently, Cold Laser Therapy, also known as “photobiomodulation” is practiced in many parts of the world, including the United States.
Cold Laser Therapy brings in oxygen to the cells and stimulates the lymphatic system thereby reducing inflammation in targeted areas, which promotes tissue healing. ATP (adenosine triphosphate) production is stimulated on the cellular level, boosting their energy levels to foster normal function. The pain reflex is broken, offering what is in many cases, immediate relief of joint, muscle and arthritic pain.
Our therapy does not require any drugs or surgery, there are few side effects and risks, it is quick and convenient, completely non-invasive, highly effective and easily applied. The number of treatments can vary depending on the nature and severity of your ailment. Most patients however see improvement in symptoms after the very first treatment. At The Gibson Center in Northwest Arkansas, we’re happy to put this innovative technology and treatment to work for you.
