Conditions For Cold Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy has been shown to be effective in treating a variety of conditions including:

  • Carpal Tunnel

  • Knee Pain and Osteoarthritis

  • Spinal Pain

  • Tendonitis

  • Elbow pain from tendonitis

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

  • Shoulder Pain and Rotator Cuff Injury

How Does It Work?

Cold laser therapy is applied to the patient with a small hand held device directly on the patient’s skin. The laser emits a light energy at a frequency so that it penetrates the skin between 2 to 5 cm deep. The light energy is absorbed at a cellular level. The photons stimulate a bio cellular response comparable to photosynthesis in plants. The cells that are stimulated lessen inflammation and stimulate restoration of damaged tissue.

The patient’s at Coastal Integrative Healthcare in Edgewater describe the procedure as painless and there is typically no heat or cold felt during the procedure. Each treatment will typically last 7-15 minutes.

Effects

Laser therapy has been shown to reduce pain, inflammation, edema, swelling, and increasing intra cellular metabolism.

Many people in Edgewater and New Smyrna Beach prefer cold laser therapy because the treatment is painless, easy to apply, and doesn’t have any side effects that may be experienced from more invasive procedures like surgery or pain medications.

Many patients are prescribed cold laser therapy for the benefits described above. If you would like a consultation to see if you are a candidate for care in our office, call 386-267-6382 or click here to request an appointment.

It is a neck injury that happens when it is bent in a nodding movement violently, for example in a car accident when someone hits you from the back. This injury involves nerves, tendons, disks, and muscles in your neck that need to be monitored to ensure no serious damage was caused. Make an appointment as soon as possible with your doctor.

On average, neck stiffness goes away in a few weeks. When the injury affects only the soft tissue it takes between 6 to 10 weeks to heal. If nerves are damaged it will take longer. Our specialists can help you determine your condition and the best treatment. The earlier you start the easier it is to identify the area to work on. Call us for more information.

Physical Therapy is necessary to build flexibility and strength in the neck muscles. Follow your doctor’s advice on what medication to take to ease the pain. Apply ice to the affected area to avoid inflammation and be aware of your posture to speed the recovery. In case you are told to wear a foam collar, do it even if it is uncomfortable at the beginning. This will prevent you from accidentally hurting your neck again.

The answer is yes because the spine, the neck, and the head are connected through nerves that send messages to the brain when one of them is hurt.
If the pain spreads to your temples, forehead, and around the eyes, it might be a cervicogenic headache. Talk to your doctor to get evaluated.

Locate the painful spot and massage in circles. If you feel a knot push it carefully up and down. You can also try gently stretching your neck and moving it to left and right. Take pain relievers as advised by your doctor. Make sure you do not spend long periods of time in the same posture. If the pain persists for more than three weeks visit a chiropractor or physical therapist.
