Cold laser therapy is one of the alternative therapies used in the treatment of a variety of conditions. It is preferred to certain traditional treatment methods since it is non-invasive and doesn't cause adverse side effects. At Sterchi Chiropractic, Dr. Sterchi uses cold laser therapy to help our patients recover from conditions such as knee pain, joint pain, sports injuries, and arthritis. If you live in or around Yorkville or Oswego and are considering cold laser therapy to help you heal, contact Sterchi Chiropractic to schedule a consultation.
What Is Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold laser therapy is a type of treatment that alters cellular function using low-level lasers. During the therapy, photons of light are focused on the targeted area after penetrating through the skin. They interact with certain light-sensitive elements present in the cells, resulting in reduced inflammation, pain relief, and healing.

Some of the conditions treatable using cold laser therapy include:
- Knee pain

The Benefits of Cold Laser Therapy

- Providing relief for pain
- Reducing inflammation and supporting faster healing
- It is non-invasive, unlike treatment methods such as surgery

Is Cold Laser Therapy Safe?
A lot of research has been done on cold laser therapy, and it has been found to be a safe treatment therapy. Chiropractors who use this therapy on their patients are highly trained.
