Using Cold Laser for Rotator Cuff Injury

Applying Cold Laser Therapy to Reduce Shoulder Pain

The patient was complaining of pain and stiffness upon waking in the morning. It was also affecting his sleep due to the pain in the shoulder.

His MRI revealed a fraying of the supraspinatus tendon, a muscle that is located at the top of the shoulder and aids in moving the arm.

The ring of light you see is emanating from the cold laser, it penetrates approximately 2.5 cm into the body. This light stimulates the mitochondria within the area being treated to produce the following effects:

1) increase in metabolic energy which increases the speed of healing processes.

2) increase in white blood cells that help clean up scar tissue.

With the cold laser therapy he was receiving acupuncture treatment for his shoulder.

This is a painless procedure. After 3 treatments the patient stated he felt like someone had put oil in his shoulder because it was moving smoothly.

I often use cold laser therapy (low level laser) for joint pain in my practice along with acupuncture, I have successfully treated sores knee and elbow pain with this therapy.
