With our busy lifestyles today, none of us can afford the downtime often required to heal certain injuries. Anything that will speed up the healing process is welcomed and well worth it. Cold laser therapy is one more option that can potentially provide pain relief or pain reduction especially for patients seeking treatment without the use of surgery or drugs.
Unlike a hot or medical laser (used for surgeries), the cold laser was designed solely for healing. The laser stimulates the area of injury at a cellular level, helping your cells to function more effectively, thus speeding up the healing process and allowing for a faster return to normal function.
When the body has an injury the cells are damaged and fail to function within normal parameters. Low-level lasers from the Cold Laser machine penetrate deeply into the skin and work by restoring this abnormal cellular function. Cold Laser uses a non-heat producing light laser, which is locked at a specific wavelength that is optimal for treatment and can penetrate deeply into tissue. Cold Laser or Low-Level Laser Therapy is emerging as the therapeutic modality in the healing arts community.
The biological effects of Low-Level Laser Therapy have been shown to significantly accelerate and enhance the body’s natural defense and repair abilities when injured. By reducing the duration of inflammation as well as enhancing specific repair and healing process, Low-Level Laser Therapy has been proven to provide pain relief, reduce damage due to the injury and loss of function. Low-Level Laser Therapy enables the body to have a more rapid repair and stronger tissues once healed.
Laser Therapy works by stimulating a certain part of the cell to promote pain management, inflammation or swelling management, as well as scar tissue repair and new cell growth. Laser Therapy creates no pain or heat and is perfectly safe for all patients.
The positive effects of Cold Laser Therapy include improved metabolism, circulation and tissue healing. Laser therapy may be useful for the following:
- Frozen Shoulder
- Post-Operative Wounds
- Scar Tissue
- Autoimmune Diseases
- Chronic or Acute Pain
- Wound Healing
- Disc Herniations
- Minor Nerve Damage
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Heavy Metal
Laser treatments are painless and take only a few minutes to complete!
