October 4, 2009 (Newswire.com) - There's a new weapon in the arsenal for treating pain and swelling related to carpal tunnel syndrome, neck trauma and other injuries caused by sports, work, auto accidents and falls. Low-level laser treatment (LLLT), also known as a cold laser, can be used to:
• reduce muscle and joint pain
• reduce muscle spasms
• reduce stiffness and pain associated with arthritis
• promote relaxation of muscles
The Food and Drug Administration recently approved its use for relieving chronic pain in the neck and shoulder. In studies, cold laser increased muscle strength and range of motion and decreased inflammation.
Dr. Mark Mulak uses cold laser everyday in his chiropractic office located at 900 Reservoir Avenue in Cranston Rhode Island. Patients usually come in once or twice a week for treatment and often feel immediate results. Other treatment options are often used in conjunction with cold laser therapy for those suffering from osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, whiplash among other injuries. Patients that are receiving traditional chiropractic care also enjoy the benefits of cold laser treatment because of its ability to erase pain and relax muscles.
