Cold Laser Therapy

I've had CTS surgery in 2005 on both hands, 2009 for a second surgery on my right hand. While all of my surgery is a success, I have some pain, swelling in my hands and wonder if cold laser therapy would help. I just don't have a pain free life with my hands. I do PT on them about 2-3 times a week. I can do very little with them (typing, cleaning the house, etc) and be in pain by 10 am. I still have plenty of sensatiion in my fingertips not the numbness I've had in the past. I still can't seem to drive very far. Any one have this therapy not as an alternative to surgery but just to reduce swelling and pain? Thanks.

Re: Cold Laser Therapy--update

Update on my CTS and cold laser therapy. After 4 sessions cold laser therapy (CLT) didn't help me. However, going on an anti-inflammatory diet and doing more exercise has been good. I've lost 3 1/2 lbs in 11 days and I feel a lot better with more energy. I also have arthritis in my feet and that is almost half of what it was, painwise. I am now looking into the connection between poor circulation and CTS. I've always had that even as a kid. Arms and legs go to sleep easily. I've had surgery on my hands (2005 for both and 2009 for a repeat on the right hand). I feel like it was a success because I still have feeling in my fingertips.
