Laser Therapy for Traumatic Brain Injury and Chronic Pain
Laser light alleviates pain and promotes healing at the cellular level within tissues.
Evidence is growing that laser energy applied externally to the head can help alleviate the symptoms of traumatic brain injury (TBI) along with associated anxiety, depression, and chronic pain.
The treatment uses various wavelengths (colors) of light in the red and near-infrared spectra that are applied to the head and lasts about 30 minutes for TBI.
For chronic pain, the laser is applied to the painful area and typically lasts only a few minutes.
Most people experience a pleasant, warm sensation without any discomfort. The laser used does not cut or destroy tissue and is very safe.
The PATH Clinic uses the K-Laser Cube 3, which has three wavelengths of light. For more information on how laser therapy works, please see the short video below.
