At Bay Area Disc Centers, we understand the profound impact that chronic back and neck pain can have on your daily life. Our mission is to provide you with comprehensive and cutting-edge solutions to alleviate your discomfort, enhance your mobility, and improve your overall quality of life. With two convenient locations in Campbell, CA (Phone: (408) 866-0300) and San Mateo, CA (Phone: (650) 375-2545), our team of dedicated professionals, led by Dr. Ferrigno, is committed to delivering top-notch care through advanced treatments like cold laser therapy.
Cold laser therapy, also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT), is a non-invasive medical treatment that uses low-level lasers or light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to stimulate and promote healing in various tissues. Unlike the high-power lasers used in surgical procedures, cold lasers emit low levels of light energy that do not generate heat and are safe for use on living tissues. Cold laser therapy is used to treat a range of conditions, including deep tissue issues. Give us a call today to find out if cold laser therapy is right for you.
The Healing Power of Cold Laser Therapy
At Bay Area Disc Centers, we offer the cutting-edge treatment known as cold laser therapy (Low-Level Laser Therapy or LLLT). This non-invasive approach utilizes low-intensity laser light to stimulate cellular activity, reduce inflammation, and promote deep tissue healing. It works by using low-intensity laser or light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to stimulate tissue repair and reduce pain and inflammation. True to its name, “cold laser,” cold laser light therapy doesn’t produce heat or cause thermal damage to tissues. Instead, it operates at low energy levels, typically in the red or near-infrared spectrum.
Pain Reduction: Cold laser therapy can effectively reduce pain by decreasing inflammation and facilitating the body’s natural pain-relief mechanisms.
Tissue Healing: By accelerating tissue repair and regeneration, this therapy aids in the recovery process, helping you get back to your daily activities sooner.
Non-Invasive: Cold laser therapy is non-invasive, making it an excellent option for those seeking pain relief without the need for surgery or medications.
Our state-of-the-art equipment, combined with the expertise of our team, ensures that you receive safe and effective cold laser therapy tailored to your unique condition.
The Science of Cold Laser Therapy
The key to cold laser therapy is the interaction between the specific wavelengths of light used and the body’s tissues. Light at certain wavelengths is absorbed by chromophores, which are molecules within cells that can absorb light energy.
When the absorbed light energy interacts with the chromophores, it triggers a series of cellular responses. Some of the effects include enhanced blood circulation and inflammation reduction.
Increased ATP Production: Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is a molecule that provides energy to cells. Cold laser therapy can stimulate an increase in ATP production, which helps cells function more efficiently and accelerates the healing process.
Enhanced Blood Circulation: Laser therapy can improve blood flow to the treated area. This increased circulation helps deliver oxygen and nutrients to cells while removing waste products, aiding in tissue repair.
Reduction of Inflammation: Cold laser therapy can reduce inflammation by modulating the activity of inflammatory molecules and promoting the release of anti-inflammatory mediators.
Pain Relief: The therapy may stimulate the release of endorphins, which are natural pain-relieving chemicals in the body. It can also affect nerve cells, reducing pain signals.
The cellular responses triggered by cold laser therapy promote tissue repair and regeneration. This makes it useful in treating a range of conditions, including musculoskeletal injuries, soft tissue injuries, and chronic pain.
Back and Neck Problems We Address
Dr. Ferrigno is able to help you with many different causes and types of back and neck pain. Whether you’re dealing with chronic pain, recent injuries, or discomfort stemming from everyday wear and tear, our cold laser therapies can provide relief for a range of conditions, including but not limited to herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and more.
Herniated Discs: Disc herniations can cause excruciating pain due to the pressure they exert on nerves in the spine. Our treatments aim to reduce inflammation and promote healing in the affected area.
Spinal Stenosis: This condition occurs when the spaces within your spine narrow, often leading to nerve compression and radiating pain. Our therapies can help alleviate these symptoms and enhance your spinal flexibility.
Sciatica: Sciatic nerve pain can be debilitating, radiating down your leg and causing discomfort. We target the source of this pain with precision to offer you relief.
