A few of the most important benefits of Cold Laser Therapy are pain relief, advanced healing, anti-inflammation, stimulation of the immune system, improved blood flow and increased cell metabolism.
Cold laser therapy is effectively used to treat acute and chronic pain. If you suffer from conditions such as neck pain, back pain, joint pain, migraine headaches, tendonitis or fibromyalgia Cold Laser Therapy may be for you. Cold Laser Therapy is also very beneficial for arthritis, soft tissue injuries, sports injuries and tendonitis.
How it Works
Cold Laser Therapy works by helping increase the levels of serotonin in your body to help your body heal itself. The Cold Laser Therapy system was derived from photo therapy. Phototherapy has been around for more than 30 years and is a process where a special type of light penetrates the surface of the skin as well as underlying tissues to stimulate natural healing in the body. The low level laser light used in the process is the compressed light from a wavelength of the red or the cold part of the light spectrum.
The laser directs light energy into the body’s cells. The cells then convert this into chemical energy to promote natural healing and pain relief. The laser also allows photons to enter the tissue and become absorbed in the cells mitochondria (the cells powerhouse). Within the mitochondria, the photonic energy is converted to electromagnetic energy in the form of ATP. This additional ATP is energy the cell uses that triggers many good physiological responses from the body such as increased cell metabolism and development of muscle tissue and collagen. It also improves blood circulation, stimulates tissue repair, wound healing and stimulates the nervous and immune systems.
There are more than 120 double blind positive studies confirming the clinical effects of laser therapy. More than 300 research reports have been published. More than 90% of these studies do verify the clinical value of laser therapy.
Lasers have been used in Europe for over 30 years and are considered the most effective treatment for pain and inflammation in muscles, tendons and joints. Laser therapy is a drug-free, non-invasive therapy with superior healing ability.
