People suffering from wrist pain, numbness and tingling associated with carpal tunnel syndrome can now avoid irreversible surgery with a new FDA approved Cold Laser treatment. According to the North American Association of Laser Therapy (NAALT), cold laser therapy has above an 80% success rate as compared to the 60% success rate of carpal tunnel surgery. The treatment can significantly reduce the pain and symptoms associated with this condition.
The concept of cold laser has been around for over 25-30 years mainly in Europe and has been used to treat multiple injuries ranging from carpal tunnel syndrome to lower back pain. During cold laser treatment, a high wavelength light is passed through the injured area and causes an increase in cell metabolism in the area. This increased cell synthesis causes an increased immune system response, which in turn effectively increases the healing of the injured tissue.
The mission of the NAALT is to improve understanding of the photobiological mechanisms, basic laser physics, treatment parameters, techniques, and regulatory issues.
According to Dr. Vishal Verma, D.C., a member of the NAALT, "cold laser therapy has phenomenal and research proven results". "This will revolutionize pain management for carpal tunnel syndrome.
