Cold laser therapy treatment can be powerful when used to speed the healing of a painful area. Also called low-level laser therapy, soft laser biostimulation, photobiomodulation, and low-power laser therapy (LPLT), this treatment uses a device to deliver low levels of light to problematic areas. It is often used in conjunction with other treatment approaches to facilitate healing and recovery from soft-tissue and joint conditions.
