Why Choose Laser Therapy for Knee Pain Treatment?

Written By Skaggs Chiropractic on July 12, 2019

Man with knee pain Knee pain can range from mildly annoying to severely debilitating. No one wants to undergo an invasive knee transplant or give up their job due to constant pain.

Unfortunately, 25% of adults suffer from frequent knee pain – a large chunk of the population.

Instead of relying on Motrin and waiting for the pain to get worse, consider giving low-level laser therapy (LLLT) a try as an all-natural knee pain treatment.

How Does Laser Therapy Work?

When you suffer a knee injury, the tissue in your muscles, tendons, and ligaments becomes damaged, inflamed, and swollen.

Similar to photosynthesis in plants, cold lasers penetrate deep beneath the skin’s surface into muscles, tendons, and ligaments to stimulate healing without any heat or discomfort.

Research shows that LLLT reduces inflammatory enzymes, making it beneficial for treating both chronic and acute knee pain due to

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Tendonitis

  • Nerve damage

  • Fibromyalgia

  • General damage and injury

During your LLLT treatment session, you shouldn’t feel a thing because the lasers are unique medical-grade cold lasers that can’t burn or cauterize.
