Heal with Cold Laser Therapy

 

 

What is Cold Laser Therapy? 

 

 

Cold Laser is an effective modality and dovetails nicely with acupuncture and bodywork.  It is a non-invasive therapy that is pain and drug free.   

 

This type of laser uses Red and Infrared light photons to create a healing effect on the body.     

 

It also provides a non-addicting treatment that eliminates the complications of long-term drug treatment programs.

 

The goal of laser therapy is to deliver light energy units from red and infrared laser radiation, called photons, to damaged cells. It is the consensus of experts is that photons absorbed by the cells through laser therapy stimulate the mitochondria to accelerate production of ATP. This biochemical increase in cell energy is used to transform live cells from a state of illness to a stable, healthy state. 

Over 4000 studies have been conducted in recent years to validate the effectiveness of cold laser therapy. Cold lasers are FDA cleared and widely use for treatment of:

 

  • Acute and chronic pain
  • Ligament sprains
  • Muscle strain
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Tendonitis
  • Arthritis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Back pain
  • Bursitis
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia

 

 

 

 

Benefit of Cold Lasers

  • Extremely safe
  • Non-Toxic 
  • Non-Invasive 
  • No side effects or pain 
  • Highly effective in treating ailments (more than 90% efficacy) 
  • Superior alternative to analgesics, NSAID's and other medications 
  • Reduces the need for surgery
  • Works synergistically with other modalities like Acupuncture, Chiropractic, and PT

 

 

 

General Therapeutic Laser Biological Effects 

  • Increased Cell Growth: Laser photons accelerates cellular reproduction and growth. 
  • Increased Metabolic Activity: Photons initiate a higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells and thus greater production of the basic food source for cells, Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP). 
  • Faster Wound Healing: Cold laser photons stimulates fibroblast development and accelerates collagen synthesis in damaged tissue
  • Anti-Inflammatory Action: Laser photons reduce swelling caused by bruising or inflammation of joints resulting in enhanced joint mobility. 
  • Increased Vascular Activity: Laser photons induce temporary vasodilation that increases blood flow to effected areas. 
  • Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation:Laser photons reduce the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from: cuts, scratches, burns or post surgery. 
  • Stimulated Nerve Function: Laser photon exposure speeds the process of nerve cell reconnect ion to bring the numb areas back to life. 
  • Pain Reduction: Almost all systems have a mode of operation specifically designed to reduce pain.
