Cold Laser Therapy
Cold Laser Treatment is an innovative, scientifically based, therapeutic modality. This new technology offers advanced pain relief and expedited healing times.
Cold Laser Treatment delivers a deep, penetrating, photonic (light) energy to bring about profound physiological changes. Laser therapy increases ATP ( or energy) production within each cell, angiogenesis or formation of new capillaries to damaged tissues, reduction of inflammatory prostaglandins while increasing anti inflammatory prostaglandin release, stimulation of immune cells, increased endorphin relief, increased nitric oxide production and blocking of C fibers or nerve fibers carrying pain signals to the brain
Simply put, laser therapy reduces pain, increases wound and tissue healing, increases circulation, stimulates regeneration of peripheral nerves, improves nerve function, reduces muscle spasms, speeds up tissue repair, reduces inflammation, swelling and scar tissue formation.
Is it safe?
The Cold Laser is a pain-free, non-surgical medical device that works by stimulating the body's natural healing processes, providing pain relief and reducing injury damage. This leading edge technology has an impressive success rate of returning patients to work, sports and competitive activities, as well as everyday life. Patients treated with the Cold Laser often show a higher level of function, both during and after the treatment period. The therapeutic laser provides a tremendous alternative for those facing surgery.
There are over 3000 scientific research studies on laser therapy that have verified the clinical value and effectiveness of laser therapy.
Is it painful?
During the treatment the patient will feel deep soothing warmth. This pleasant sensation reassures the patient that the laser is stimulating cellular activity. People with pacemakers and other types of implants or prosthesis can still safely receive cold laser treatments.
What does it treat?
Laser therapy quickly and effectively relieves pain for plantar fasciitis, fibromyalgia, arthritis, sciatica, sprains, strains, low back pain, disc issues, tendinitis, shoulder and knee pain, neck pain, tennis elbow, jaw pain/TMJ and many more conditions.
Alternative modalities may relieve pain but do nothing to promote deep healing of damaged tissue. Electrical stimulation is often uncomfortable. It lacks the consistent pain reduction of laser therapy. Ultrasound is not as effective at blocking pain, and studies show that it weakens tissue. Neither of these methods provides the same stimulation of tissue healing as laser therapy.
With treatment times of 15-45 minutes, the Cold Laser allows many conditions to vastly improve within a few visits.
