Cold Laser or Low Level Laser is an FDA approved therapy. It is used for the treatment of many pain syndromes, soft tissue injuries, and the treatment of non-healing wounds. It works at a cellular level within our bodies and produces many amazing physiological effects. It stimulates our cellular power houses called mitochondria to produce ATP. ATP is the energy that all living cells use to do work. So if your cells have more energy, they can do things like heal faster, repair your DNA better and increase its cellular metabolism. It also stimulates many other cellular and physiological functions such as:
Decreases scar tissue
Stimulates capillary growth
Increases cellular oxygen
Increases cell proliferation
Increases fibroblastic activity (these are the cells that heal your soft tissues)
Increases chondrocyte activity (these are the cells that heal the cartilage in your joint surfaces)
Increases skin circulation and healing
Decreases scar tissue around nerves
Increases the rate of Myelination, Schwann Cell production and Nerve Cell Growth……heals your damaged nerves!
Accelerates & improves healing after surgery
Stimulates Osteoblastic activity (these are the cells that heal your bone)
Cold Laser has no thermal effect, so there is no chance of a burn.
Cold Laser Therapy is used for the treatment of many conditions including:
