Cold Laser Therapy
Laser therapy, also known as low-level laser or light therapy, is a treatment that utilizes specific types of light to interact with tissues. It is used to eliminate pain and promote healing for a variety of medical conditions, including but not limited to; soft tissue and sports injuries, arthritic conditions, repetitive stress injuries, wound healing / post surgery recovery.
How Does It Work?
Laser therapy is the use of light from a Low Intensity Laser Diode or an array of Superluminous Diodes to eliminate pain, accelerate healing and decrease inflammation. LLLT is also known as cold laser, low intensity laser therapy or photobiomodulation.
Laser therapy does not heat or cut tissue, unlike high intensity lasers. Many pharmacological treatments mask pain or only address the symptoms of the disease; laser therapy treats the underlying condition or pathology to promote healing. This means that the treatments are effective and the benefits of laser therapy are long lasting.
SOFT TISSUE & SPORTS INJURIES
-Muscle Strains & Tendon Tears
-Chronic Spinal Problems
REPETITIVE STRESS INJURIES
-Carpal tunnel syndrome
-Rotator Cuff injuries
-Tennis & Golfer's Elbow
GENERAL HEALTH PROBLEMS
-Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy
-Post Herpetic Neuralgia
TISSUE REPAIR & WOUND HEALING
-Traumatic Lesions (burns)
What Are The Benefits of Cold Laser Therapy?
Reduces the need for pharmaceuticals
Restores normal range of motion and physical function
No known adverse effects
No drug interactions
Often makes surgical interventions unnecessary
Provides a treatment alternative for patients that have no responded to conventional therapies
Increased production and release of endorphins, cortisol, growth hormone (instrumental in tissue repair), and ATP (improves and regulated cellular metabolism)
Increased protein synthesis - collagen, DNA, fibroblasts
Increased venous and lymphatic flow
Increased angiogenesis - elevation of oxygen saturation
Enhanced immune response, etc.
