You take the charge, go hard in the paint, fight for a rebound and jump on a loose ball. Over time, your foray at playing in a local recreation basketball league is starting to take its toll. Your excitement of sharing your stat line has dissipated into groaning over your bumps and bruises. Thankfully, we at Northeast Spine & Sports Medicine, the leading sports medicine practice in the Brick, NJ region, have a solution for you. By using cold laser therapy, you will return to form and not hesitate at grabbing the offensive board to help your team. We use cold laser therapy to help patients find relief from inflammation and pain. Also known as low-level laser therapy, this treatment utilizes low-intensity laser light to stimulate your body’s tissues. What Does It Treat? This effective form of treatment aids in relieving pain caused by a variety of different circumstances. Here are some of the conditions and sources of pain that cold laser therapy will help treat:
  • Inflammation
  • Aches and Pains
  • Minor Injuries
  • Sprains
  • Wounds
How Does It Work? Cold laser therapy is referred to as “cold” because these low levels of light are not strong enough to heat the body tissue that is stimulated by this treatment. Painless and non-invasive, this therapy applies low-level light directly to the problem area. This tissue in this area absorbs the light to promote cell regeneration. Usually, wavelengths of 600 to 700 nanometers (nm) are applied to superficial body tissue and 780 to 950 nm are for deeper tissue. The procedure takes anywhere from 5-20 minutes. Why Choose Us? At Northeast Spine & Sports Medicine, we are known for a variety of leading pain management solutions such as cold laser therapy and herniated disc treatment, and we see many patients from for Brick, NJ and the surrounding areas. Our experienced team is comprised of pain management physicians, chiropractors, physical therapists, and acupuncturists who seek to deliver treatment that helps patients live without pain.
