What Is Cold Laser Therapy? How It Can Heal Herniated Disc?

Do you suffer from back pain? Cold laser  therapy is a non-invasive procedure that is growing in popularity because it  offers pain relief without the risks of surgery or the negative side effects of  pain medication.

What  is Cold Laser Therapy?

Cold lasers are  much different than high frequency lasers that emit heat. Cold lasers emit no  heat, sound, or vibration, and induce a reaction in the cells of the body that  stimulates blood flow, increases the bodies natural healing ability, reduces  inflammation, reduces spasms, increases functionality, and decreases pain.

How does Cold Laser Therapy Work?

Cold laser therapy is administered  through a handheld device about the size of a flashlight. The laser is held  directly over the affected area for anywhere from 30 seconds to several minutes  depending on the condition of the patient and the dosage being given.

The light actually passes through  the skin about two to five centimeters where it is absorbed and interacts with  the light sensitive elements in the cell. This process is similar to  photosynthesis in plants, and initiates a reaction in the cells that is  believed to result in normalizing damaged tissue, reducing inflammation and  edema, and accelerating healing time by increasing intracellular metabolism.

The results are not instantaneous,  and it may take several sessions in order to fully experience pain relief. Some  patients require two to four sessions per week, depending on the severity of  their condition.


While this is a very low risk  procedure, there are a few precautions:
1. Do not use over any  suspicious cancerous lesions, or carcinoma.
2. Treatments should not  be given over the thyroid.
3. Cold Laser treatment  should not be administered to pregnant women.
4. Avoid direct  irradiation of the eyes, as even a cold laser can cause permanent damage to the  eyes.


If you dread both the uncertainty and high  risk factors associated with more invasive back pain remedies such as back  surgery, cold laser therapy is a safe, effective alternative. It is also a  positive alternative to high dosages of pain medication, which have several  negative side effects, including possible addiction.
