Cold Laser Therapy for Shoulder Pain
Our shoulders carry more weight than we give them credit for. And when you start feeling pain in this area, your life can become difficult – fast. Basic activities like brushing your hair or reaching for items can become extremely uncomfortable. To make matters worse, since our shoulders are used constantly, letting them rest and recover is usually not a luxury most of us can afford.
Shoulder pain can be caused by a simple pulled muscle. It could also be a symptom of a serious underlying condition, such as osteoarthritis. If you’re suffering from consistent shoulder pain, you should see a doctor as soon as possible to learn the cause and to prevent the pain from getting even worse.
Fortunately, a lot of innovative technologies are arising to treat your shoulder pain without surgical intervention. Cold laser therapy is one of them.
How Does Cold Laser Therapy Work?
Cold laser therapy allows your cells to heal using light energy. The cold light energy penetrates your skin in the injured area and encourages cellular metabolism without causing any damage to your tissues.
If you’re suffering from a shoulder injury, cold laser therapy can reduce the inflammation in your shoulders, so you feel nearly immediate pain relief.
Cold laser therapy is great at easing your pain because it:
- Improves blood flow to the injured area
- Strengthens your immune system and stimulates endorphin release
- Prevents scar tissue formation
Apart from treating shoulder pain, cold laser therapy is often used to treat:
- Back and neck pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
