Cold laser therapy doesn’t just mask the symptoms. It treats the source, using light energy to reduce pain and inflammation deep within your body.
Cold laser therapy uses light energy to reduce pain and inflammation deep within your body. Cold lasers do not heat or cut; they penetrate. We use them to trigger chemical changes that help heal damaged cells.
Unlike injections and prescriptions, which just mask symptoms and do nothing to treat injury, cold laser therapy delivers light energy, in the form of photons, to damaged cells. The photons, absorbed by the cells, stimulate the cell’s mitochondria to accelerate the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). This biochemical increase in cell energy helps transform cells from a state of illness to a stable, healthy state. The result is reduced inflammation, increased blood flow, and stimulated tissue growth.
In other words, cold laser therapy helps aid your body’s own healing process! Clinical studies using cold laser therapy show beneficial effects on tissue and cells in the:
All light is composed of photons. Photons are small packets of light energy In the form of waves, with a defined wavelength and frequency. Photon energy can penetrate the skin and underlying structures and accelerate the healing process.
How? Laser light, when turned to specific wavelengths and frequencies, can stimulate metabolic processes at the cellular level. lt acts by introducing a photochemical reaction in your cells. This action is called biostimulation or photobiomodulation.
Biostimulation or photobiomodulation works at low levels of laser light. The technique is called “cold” laser therapy because low-level lasers do not possess enough energy to heat or cut your body’s tissue. High-powered medical lasers can cut like a scalpel or even destroy diseased tissue. Cold lasers penetrate and heal tissue.
