Can Cold Laser Therapy Help Treat Knee Pain?

Written By Total Health Center on December 19, 2018

Knee pain is a common problem for 25% of today’s adult population. For most people over age 50, the most common reason for knee pain is osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint condition.

In fact, knee pain is the leading reason for knee replacement surgeries that have more than tripled in recent years.

For those seeking a non-surgical alternative to invasive knee replacement, low-level light therapy (LLLT), also known as cold laser therapy, offers a knee pain treatment that’s not only safe and drug-free, but effective.


An Effective, Drug-free Knee Pain Treatment

Cold laser therapy is an in-office procedure that directs specific wavelengths of light to the injured or affected areas.

These wavelengths can travel two to five centimeters beneath the skin’s surface, directly into the underlying tissue.

Once the light reaches the tissues, it promotes a physiological reaction that helps alleviate pain by reducing inflammation. It also speeds healing through increased circulation, which brings additional blood, nutrients, and oxygen to the knee area.

During a treatment, it takes anywhere from 30 seconds to up to 10 minutes for the cold laser device to penetrate the skin long enough to cause sufficient tissue regeneration and healing. 

You may feel a slight tingling, but other than that, there’s no sensation and no down-time, so you can return to your normal activities immediately afterward.

While you may feel better after only one session, you’ll most likely need several sessions over a period of weeks to months to get optimal results.
