Cold Laser Therapy is an innovative new method for treatment of a variety of conditions, from acute to chronic. Cold lasers are handheld devices that emit low levels of light into a targeted area in order to stimulate healing without the same heat created by aesthetic or surgical lasers.
Much as plants use photosynthesis to convert the sun’s rays to energy, the body’s cells have a similar reaction when exposed to certain wavelengths of red or infrared light. It acts as a catalyst, stimulating damaged cells into regeneration.
The procedure is called “Cold” Laser Therapy because the low levels of light aren’t powerful enough to heat the tissue. The patient feels the device against their skin, but there’s none of the heat, sound, or vibration that’s associated with traditional laser treatments. It’s non-invasive, and painless.
Cold Laser Therapy is beneficial for treating a variety of issues from minor injuries, sprains, and inflammation to more chronic and deep-seated aches and pains. In conjunction with chiropractic care, Cold Laser Therapy can help reunite body and mind.
