What is Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold Laser therapy is a safe, non-invasive and pain-free healing alternative to painkillers, acupuncture or surgery. A Cold Laser emits infrared light energy (known as photons) deep into damaged tissues and cells to encourage a faster healing response and a reduction in pain and inflammation. There is no risk of tissue damage or side effects with Cold Laser Therapy and it can be used to safely treat various health issues.
How does Cold Laser Therapy Work?
Cold Laser Therapy works by activating important cellular pathways in the body. The Cold laser helps to accelerate the healing process by stimulating energy production in cells which helps to accelerate tissue repair. Cells and tissues that lack proper energy production will not be able to heal properly. When laser light is delivered to injured cells, they absorb the light and turn it into energy which is then used for tissue rebuilding and repair. Cold Laser Therapy also helps to reduce inflammation of the injured tissues by increasing circulation to the area. Increased circulation helps bring more oxygen to the injured cells and tissues which aids in natural healing. This increase in circulation helps to also decrease swelling and reduce or eliminate pain at the site of injury.
Cold Laser Therapy has been used with amazing success with the following conditions: Arthritis, Acne, Migraines, Neck and Shoulder pain, Tendinitis, Strains, Carpal Tunnel, Sciatica, Hip Bursitis, Diabetic Neuropathy, Knee pain, Tennis Elbow, and Rotator Cuff injuries. Cold Laser Therapy is also great for acute or chronic joint pain, soft tissue injuries as well as fibromyalgia.
Cold Laser Therapy has been extensively researched over the last 50 years and is recommended by the American Physical Therapy Association. It can be used on it’s own or in conjunction with other therapies like Osteopathy or acupuncture.
