Cold Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy is a relatively new technology (30 years old) which works by covering deep tissue with laser photons to stimulate changes in the tissue. Cold Laser therapy offers a non-intrusive option to acupuncture and surgery.

Cold laser are widely used for treatment of:

Acute and chronic pain
Ligament sprains
Muscle strain
Soft tissue injuries
Tendonitis
Arthritis
Tennis elbow
Back pain
Bursitis
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Fibromyalgia

Healing With Cold Lasers

The cold laser produces an impulse of light at a wavelength (approximate 900nm) that maximized the energy (in photons) at a desire depth, usually 10-13cm (4-5 inches) deep. This may be combined with other laser diode with a shorter wavelength (875nm) to add photons to the shallower levels of tissue. In addition, red light diode with a wavelength of 660nm may be used to add energy to even shallower levels of tissues.
The goal of laser therapy is to deliver light energy units from infrared laser radiation, called photons, to damaged cells. It is believed that photons absorbed by the cells through laser therapy stimulate the mitochondria to accelerate production of ATP. This biochemical increase in cell energy is used to transform live cells from a state of illness to a stable, healthy state.
Over 4000 studies have been conducted in recent years to validate the effectiveness of cold laser therapy. Cold lasers treatment systems may be cleared by the FDA.

Reduces the need for surgery

General Therapeutic Laser Biological Effects

Increased Cell Growth: Laser photons accelerates cellular reproduction and growth.

Increased Metabolic Activity: Photons initiate a higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells and thus greater production of the basic food source for cells, Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP).

Faster Wound Healing: Cold laser photons stimulates fibroblast development and accelerates collagen synthesis in damaged tissue

Anti-Inflammatory Action: Laser photons reduce swelling caused by bruising or inflammation of joints resulting in enhanced joint mobility.

Increased Vascular Activity: Laser photons induce temporary vasodilation that increases blood flow to effected areas.

Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation:Laser photons reduce the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from: cuts, scratches, burns or post-surgery.

Stimulated Nerve Function: Laser photon exposure speeds the process of nerve cell reconnection to bring the numb areas back to life.
