Much research has been done in the areas of pain management, wound healing, nerve regeneration, collagen stimulation and fat breakdown in the body. The cold laser is FDA approved for the treatment of chronic pain, burns, lipodissolve, and neuromuscular reeducation. It is used by athletic teams to decrease pain in professional athletes. Unlike the “hot” lasers that are used for hair removal and other cosmetic purposes, the cold laser is a gentle therapy that works on an energetic level in the body to activate restorative and healing cellular responses.
Conditions - Musculoskeletal Pain (neck, back, shoulder, hip, joint pain), Arthritis (Rheumatoid and osteoarthritis), Herpes zoster/shingles, Neuropathy, Nerve pain, Carpal tunnel, TMJ.
This therapy has been shown to be beneficial in managing:
- Musculoskeletal Pain (neck, back, shoulder, hip, other joint pain)
- Tissue adhesions/fibrosis (scar tissue)
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Herpes (Type 1, Type 2, and zoster) active breakouts and pain
- Skin infections
- Wound healing (tissue, bone)
- Dissolving fat deposits in the body
- Anti-aging by stimulating collagen production
Prolotherapy is a simple, natural technique that stimulates the body to repair the painful area when the natural healing process needs a little assistance. In most cases, commonly prescribed anti-inflammatory medications and more drastic measures like surgery and joint replacement may not help, and often hinder or even prevent the healing process. The basic mechanism of Prolotherapy is simple. A substance is injected into the affected ligaments or tendons, which leads to local inflammation. The localized inflammation triggers a wound healing cascade,
