Cold Laser Therapy in NYC-Knee pain treatment
In recent years, interest in non-surgical pain relief treatments has increased exponentially. Some of the
advantages of effective non-invasive treatments over traditionally surgical procedures include lower
health risks and side effects, faster recovery, minimal or no need for narcotics or anesthetics, and more.
Cold laser therapy is a leading treatment in the field of non-invasive, non-surgical pain relief because it
safely and effectively accelerates the body’s natural ability to heal.
Cold laser therapy has gained popularity due to its effectiveness in relieving pain caused by injured
or damaged soft tissues. Dr. Steven Shoshany, a specialist in non-invasive, non-surgical pain relief
treatment protocols, has been helping patients in NYC achieve long-term pain relief through the
use of cold laser therapy for several years. Dr. Shoshany’s patients range from athletes and sports
professionals to everyday New Yorkers of all ages who experience chronic pain or have suffered from
different types of injuries.
Cold laser therapy provides outstanding results by targeting damage at the cellular level, specifically in
each cell’s mitochondria, where energy is produced, stored, and distributed. During treatment, patients
rest comfortable while a low-level laser beam pointed at the affected area goes below the skin and
directly into the damaged tissue. Without any discomfort or heat, the laser goes to work and stimulates
blood flow and production of cellular ATP (adenosine triphosphate). The increase in ATP production
gives the damaged tissues a boost, enhancing the quality and speed of healing, reducing inflammation,
discomfort, and pain. There are no known adverse effects or contraindications for cold laser therapy
and it provides long-term relief and tissue restoration. Each cold laser therapy session typically lasts 10
to 15 minutes and although the frequency of treatments varies per individual, the average is 2 to 4 times
per week. The total number of sessions needed will also vary depending on the extent of damage and
response to therapy.
As a guest on Fox’s hit medical talk show, The Dr. Oz Show, where he has appeared multiple times as an expert in non-surgical, non-narcotic pain relief treatments, Dr. Shoshany demonstrated and spoke
about some of the many benefits and applications of cold laser therapy in an episode aired on January
