Cold Laser Therapy is a painless treatment, approved by the FDA, that uses clinically tested wavelengths of light to stimulate natural biological process leading to faster healing and pain relief. It’s referred to as Cold to deferentiate it from lasers that generate heat. For more information about how cold lasers work click here.
Like plants absorbing light through photosyntheses, cells in the body absorb laser energy that stimulates the body to release endorphins, reduce inflammation and stimulate the healing process.
There are no side effects and laser therapy can be used to treat acute or chronic degenerative conditions. As reported in over 1,800 publications worldwide since the 1960’s, laser therapy has demonstrated its non-invasive, no-toxic quality, and it’s efficacy in the treatment of acute pain, chronic and degenerative conditions, improving the speed and quality of wound healing and for muscle, tendon and ligament injuries.
Using Laser Therapy and by applying the correct massage method with correct pressure, blood flow is increased, knots are broken down, and muscles regain their ability to flex and release.
