What is Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold Laser Therapy is a safe, painless, and effective treatment approach for a wide range of medical conditions, including, but not limited to inflammatory arthritic conditions, repetitive strain injuries, and soft tissue and sports injuries. Cold Laser Therapy has also been shown to increase the rate of wound healing, improve dermatological conditions, and help alleviate a variety of musculo-skeletal problems.
The infrared laser technology penetrates the skin and muscle layers and directly provides the diseased or traumatized tissue with photons of healing infrared rays. The laser permeates the damaged tissues at the cellular level, and has the ability to improve the function of the entire cell. By increasing the rate at which our own body produces mediators and intracellular molecules, we can enhance the initiation of a cascade of complex physiological reactions, leading to the restoration of normal cell structure and function.
This is a corrective process for the tissues at the cellular level and therefore can result in the elimination of symptoms, including pain. In addition to improved cellular function, LLLT will enhance the body’s immune system response and facilitates the natural healing within.
Cold Laser Therapy is completely safe and has no adverse side effects.
Treatments can take anywhere from 10-30+ minutes depending on the area, depth, and severity of the presenting condition. To achieve optimum results, treatments should be applied 2-3 times per week for 4 weeks, but can often offer pain relief within the first few sessions.
