The good news is that there is a type of therapy that can help you overcome your knee pain called cold laser therapy. This knee pain treatment was specifically designed to address the underlying issue causing the pain. Learn more about it below.

How Cold Laser Therapy is Used as Knee Pain Treatment

Multiple studies have shown that cold laser therapy is an effective treatment for knee pain of all types. Cold laser therapy can address knee pain in the following ways:

  • Tissue Repair and Growth: Concentrated photon streams (lasers) stimulate damaged cells to repair themselves and encourage new healthy cells to grow. Enzymes are activated that repair and regenerate the cells.

  • Wound Healing: Laser light stimulates collagen production, which is the main building block to heal wounds.

  • Decrease Fibrous Tissue: Fibrous tissue is the technical term for scar tissue, which builds up after an injury to cause pain and limit function. The laser helps break up and reduce the tissue.

  • Pain Relief: Certain wavelengths of light help shut off chronic pain signals and stimulate the production of pain removing chemicals like endorphins.

  • Increased Blood Flow: Light stimulates blood flow, which has anti-inflammatory properties to reduce swelling and bruising. Blood flow also helps improve the supply of nutrients while removing waste from tissues.

  • Nerve Healing: Laser therapy can enhance nerve function and healing, which traditionally takes a very long time.

  • Improved Energy to Tissues: Cells are stimulated to produce more energy, which helps the body naturally remove unwanted tissues.
