What Are Pain Killing Laser Treatments?
Pain killing laser treatments are not as futuristic as they sound. Cold laser therapy, also referred to as low level laser therapy (LLLT), is a treatment that promotes accelerated healing at a cellular level for musculoskeletal conditions.
A single wavelength of light is emitted by a handheld device, which is about the size of a flashlight, when it is held to the affected area receiving treatment. This wavelength of light generates no heat, sound, or vibration. It is non-invasive and not painful. The medical applications of this treatment are:
- Reduction of inflammation
- Pain relief
- Acceleration of tissue repair

Benefits of Pain Killing Laser Treatments
The main benefit of pain killing laser treatments is in the name. It reduces and relieves pain and inflammation. Pain relief is an integral part of improved quality of life, as pain can be mildly irritating or affect your life in such a way that you struggle daily with your range of motion and mental health. Another benefit of these laser treatments is that they begin to work immediately, and some patients report relief from the first treatment.
Cold laser therapy can reduce your need for further invasive treatments and pain medications that leave you feeling drowsy and fuzzy.
