Cold Laser Therapy, offers a non-intrusive pain treatment option to acupuncture and surgery.Cold Laser Therapy (also known as Low Level Laser Therapy) promotes healing for many conditions because its laser light beam penetrates the skin, increases energy and activates enzymes in targeted cells. It has been widely used in Europe for over thirty five years and has been the subject of numerous studies with over 3,500 scientific papers published worldwide.
Laser light has unique physical properties that ordinary light does not have. The unique properties of coherence and monochromaticity are the key to why laser light is so effective compared to other kinds of light in pain reduction and healing. This light can strengthen and heal damaged cells.
Using photochemical processes, laser light inserts bio-photons into damaged cells. The cells begin to produce energy (ATP), which improves their function, assists their division, strengthens the body’s immune system, and causes the secretion of various hormones. This facilitates the healing of tissue and the relief of pain. If damaged cells have died, the bio-photons help the division of neighboring cells, generating new tissues, and thus bringing about healing.
Cold Laser treatments are painless and non-toxic with no reported side effects. As demand for alternative treatments increases, many beneficial physiological effects continue to be discovered with the application of Cold Laser Therapy.
