Sinusitis is a common inflammatory disease that affects up to 13% of the U.S. population in all age groups.
Healthy sinus cavities are normally filled with air. However, due to allergies, bacterial infection, or anatomical issues, the natural sinus outflow tracts can become obstructed. The sinuses will be filled with pressure and fluid. As a result, many cold-like symptoms will occur including thick nasal mucus, plugged nose, and facial pain.
Common treatment usually involves drugs such as antibiotics, which do not always work since not all sinusitis is due to bacteria. Surgical procedures may be effective but can be costly and the recovery time can be lengthy. Fortunately, new research has shown that cold laser therapy can be an effective solution to sinusitis.
What Is Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold laser therapy, which is also called Low-Level Laser Therapy or LLLT, involves the use of a specific wavelength of light to stimulate the body’s cells. This wavelength does not cause any sensation of heat or warming while allowing the healing properties of the light to facilitate wound and tissue healing. When cells are exposed to laser light, cell functions are stimulated, improving immune system function, increasing collagen synthesis and enhancing tissue regeneration.
Unlike drugs or surgery, cold laser is safe, painless, non-invasive, and has no known side effects.
How Does Cold Laser Therapy Help with Sinusitis?
When the nasal cavity is irradiated, the cold laser will penetrate deep into the tissues and stimulate a healing response at a cellular level. The analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and bio-stimulation effects will help to ease or eliminate pain. It also causes a quicker withdrawal of inflammation and edema of the mucosa, thus bringing restoration of drainage of sinus as well as normalization of mucociliary function.
Cold laser therapy offers a safe way to relieve many sinus conditions, including sinusitis, rhinitis, sinus pressure, snoring, etc.
Cold laser therapy has been closely studied in many clinical trials, with proven results of treating sinusitis.
In a 2013 study, 15 adult patients with sinusitis participated in a clinical study. Patients were given cold laser irradiation on six points over each maxillary or frontal sinus 3 times per week for 10 treatment sessions. Symptoms were scored after each treatment. This result indicated that cold laser therapy applied for 4 weeks improves symptoms in patients with sinusitis.
