Cold Laser Therapy
The Cold Lasers can be used on patients who suffer from a variety of acute and chronic conditions in order to eliminate pain, swelling, reduce spasms and increase functionality. Cold Lasers (low-level lasers) stimulates the body’s natural healing power. They have the most profound effect on the mitochondria of the cell. Mitochondria are the energy producing centers of our cells. When the gentle but penetrating beam of the low level laser illuminates the mitochondria, mitochondrial energy production is increased. This process can be compared to photosynthesis in plants. Sunlight is absorbed by plants, which is then converted to usable energy so that the plant can grow. When cells absorb this light energy, it initiates a series of events in the cell that stimulate the healing process and eventually result in normalizing damaged or injured tissue, a reduction in pain, inflammation, edema, and an overall reduction in healing time by increasing intracellular metabolism. Cold Laser Therapy is quick, painless, has no side effects or medication interactions, and has very few contraindications.
