Low level laser therapy, or cold laser therapy provides an alternative for those people that do not want to take NSAID’s or prescription pain pills. After all, anyone that has ever been in severe pain knows just how serious it can be. If you have adverse reactions to prescription pain killers, then you can consider laser therapy. This type of painless and non invasive treatment is available in many major metropolitan areas.

Simply put, cold laser therapy is designed to stimulate cells, speed up healing and reduce inflammation.
Like most treatments, cold laser therapy has its limitations. For example, if there are muscle imbalances in the body or excess pressure on a nerve, cold laser therapy will not address these issues.
