Cold Laser Therapy is low-intensity therapy that stimulates healing while using low levels of light.
The technique is called “Cold” laser therapy because the low levels of light aren’t enough to heat your body’s tissue. The level of light is low when compared to other forms of laser therapy.
Different wavelengths and outputs of low level light are applied directly to a targeted area. The body tissue then absorbs the light. The red and near infrared light cause a reaction, and the damaged cells respond with a physiological reaction to promote regeneration.
The procedure is painless and noninvasive. Each treatment lasts only a few minutes.
Cold Laser Therapy is used to repair and relieve pain and inflammation from everyday injuries, sports injuries or automobile injuries.
Thousands of doctors and patients have experienced the power of laser therapy and are familiar with its therapeutic effects. Photons enter the tissue and interact with the cytochrome c complex within mitochondria. This interaction triggers a biological cascade of events that leads to an increase in cellular metabolism and a decrease in both pain and inflammation. Unlike medications, laser therapy reduces pain without undesirable side effects.
It is also important to point out that patients report long-lasting pain relief. While the number of treatments required may vary depending on the acuity of the condition, many patients experience lasting relief after only a couple treatment
