Cold Laser Therapy for Knee Pain in NYC
The knee joints are highly susceptible to injury because they are responsible for carrying the entire upper body’s weight. No other joint bears as much weight as knees do. The knee is a complex structure that is stabilized and moved by the network of muscles, tendons, and ligaments that surround the joint. Knee injuries can occur due to excessive body weight, running and other high impact exercises, overuse of the knee muscles, tendons and/or ligaments, as well as trauma from accidents (such as dislocations and fractures). Due to the intricate nature of the knee joint, knee injuries require treatment from highly skilled doctors in order to obtain the best results and prevent further damage. Our specialized team is certified and well-versed in non-surgical therapies for a wide variety of knee injuries.
Cold laser therapy is one of the most often used ancillary treatments we use when it comes to soft tissue trauma, and it is completely non surgical. By using a laser, specific wavelengths of light can penetrate deep in the the tissue to promote the reduction of inflammation, and help nourish the tissue. I can be thought of the same way we think of the effect of sunlight. Sunlight provides us with vitamin D is an essential vitamin that is produced in our bodies through the absorption of sunlight. Vitamin D is essential in intracellular communication and also plays a part in bone health. Cold laser works in a somewhat similar manner by causing photochemical reactions in the body that can aid the body's natural healing process.
Our state-of-the-art physical rehabilitation facility in NYC offers cold laser therapy along with a comprehensive range of treatments for knee injuries under one roof, from diagnostic services (X-rays and ultrasound), to orthopedic, chiropractic, physical therapy, acupuncture, and pain management therapies, provided by our licensed staff. Each patient is evaluated to determine the root cause of knee pain. Once any injuries and lifestyle factors that are causing pain are established, our doctors formulate a personalized care plan to correct any abnormalities within the knee. Over the course of treatment, patients will regain stability, mobility, flexibility, as well as decreased pain and increased comfort. It is important to seek treatment for knee pain promptly, as untreated conditions can progressively degenerate the knee joint and cause chronic pain.
