Cold laser therapy, also known as low level laser therapy, is a treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and is known to accelerate the healing process of a variety of clinical conditions. Low-energy lasers have been promoted as an effective way to produce pain relief.
Dr. Carlow specifically utilizes the Erchonia PL-Touch laser to treat patients. The amazing benefits of PL-Touch laser treatments give users a safer treatment option that effectively targets problem areas for noticeable pain management and healing. The versatility of the Erchonia PL-Touch laser allows Dr. Carlow to target a range of conditions, including the following:
- Acute and chronic pain
- Ligament sprains
- Muscle strain
- Soft tissue injuries
- Tennis elbow
- Back pain
- Wound healing
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Heel Pain/Plantar Fasciitis
Unlike drugs or surgery, the PL-Touch laser is completely painless with no downtime or adverse side effects. The device’s cold lasers are non heat producing and use specific frequencies of light to stimulate the cells in your body to produce energy. The body uses this energy to promote natural healing. Most patients don’t feel any discomfort at all when the treatment is administered. Patients remain awake through the whole session while comfortably sitting or lying on a table, which allows them to enjoy the rest of their day without interruption.
