    Cold laser, anybody heard of it used for spine?

    I have been referred to physical/occupational therapy for treatment of Carpal Tunnel. It's specifically for treatment with a cold laser.

    Has anyone heard of treatment for spinal nerve compression problems with a cold laser? The EMG that was done to diagnose my carpal tunnel also showed 'pinched nerves' on both sides of my cervical spine, I think at C7 and C8. If the laser works for wrists might it also work for spines? Providing that what is compressing the neeve isn't bone of course!

    I intend to ask the therapist about it in detail, but was just wondering if anyone had heard of this.

    Tigg.

    Hi tigger, No, i havent heard of it but am really interested in what the therapist says regarding its use on spine & how well it works for your wrists. Also, the cold laser will be used on your hands or wrists not on your cervical vertebrae right? I was wondering just what it does to the nerve & can it be used to remove the ganglion cyst as well or is the effect like deep icy treatment? Thanks, tigger & i hope it helps & saves you some surgery, pain, etc!
