At AICA Orthopedics, our Atlanta Orthopedic Doctors utilize state-of-the-art, FDA cleared class 4 cold lasers to help expedite the healing process. Our Atlanta Orthopedists weave cold laser therapy into all of our care plans and protocols when necessary and, with the largest offering of this type of therapy in the state of Georgia, you won’t need to wait for this revolutionary treatment.
Cold lasers can be used on patients who suffer from a variety of conditions in order to help eliminate pain, sometimes immediately, as well as cut down swelling, reduce spasms and increase functionality. This treatment utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and is thought to help accelerate the healing process. It can be used on an acute injury from the beginning to help soft tissue heal or on a chronic trauma that is not improving from conventional methods.
Even though the laser is called a “cold” beam, it provides a warm, soothing sensation in the affected area. Not only does this therapy feel pleasing to your injury, the heat allows vessels to open and increase blood flow to the injury. This extra circulation brings in new healing qualities and properties to the tissue.
In addition to the warming and increased blood flow, cold laser therapy works at a cellular level. Unlike any other therapy, the light it emits transmits photon energy directly into the cells of the tissue and acts like a fuel for the injured area at a cellular level, jumpstarting energy production in the mitochondria. This increases ATP production and expedites the healing process.
