Benefits of Cold Laser Therapy
• Relieves acute and chronic pain
• Increases blood supply
• Increases speed and quality of tissue repair
• Stimulates nerve function
• Develops collagen and muscle tissue
• Helps generate new and healthy cells and tissue
• Reduces inflammation (swelling)
Cold Laser light dramatically boosts the body’s natural healing response
Research has provided strong evidence supporting the effectiveness of laser therapy in accelerating tissue repair. Other benefits include increased circulation, increased production of ATP cell metabolism, increased collagen production, and stimulation of the immune system.
• Acute and chronic pain
• Ligament sprains
• Muscle strain
• Soft tissue injuries
• Tennis elbow
• Back pain
• Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
• Plantar Fascitis
• Myofascial Pain Syndrome
• Joint Pain
About Cold Laser Therapy
When you have an injury, cells are damaged and fail to function normally. Cold Laser Therapy uses a non-heat producing infrared light laser that penetrates deep into tissue and restores normal cellular function. Photons from the laser are absorbed by damaged cells and increase cellular energy which transforms live cells from a state of illness to a stable, healthy state.
The biological effects accelerate the body’s natural defense and repair abilities by reducing the duration of inflammation, as well as enhancing specific repair and healing processes. Cold Laser Therapy provides pain relief and enables the body to have a more rapid repair and stronger tissues once healed.
Physiological Effects of Cold Laser Therapy
The human body has an innate ability to convert light energy into something beneficial. Our ability to use sunlight to aid in the production of Vitamin D is a perfect example of how our body is able to transform light. When Cold Laser photons are absorbed by cells, the energy is transformed and creates proteins and enzymes needed for cellular repair. The result leads to regeneration and repair of damaged tissues.
Natural light produces heat that can damage your skin. Cold Laser infrared light can be concentrated into a small area and penetrates the skin without heat, causing no damage to your skin or any known side effects.
Cold Laser FAQ
What type of Cold Laser do you use?
We use the Vectra Genisys Laser which is the latest addition to the award winning Vectra Genisys family of therapy systems, providing True Laser Light Therapy, the latest high demand therapeutic modality of today’s clinician.
What Are Cold Laser Treatments Like?
Most Cold Lasers look like a flash light and emit a red beam of light. That beam of light is placed over the cause of your injury. The laser does not produce any significant amount of heat and is painless. Most patients say they do not feel anything at all. A few have reported a slight “tingling” sensation.
Is There Any Documented Research on the Efficacy of Cold Laser Therapy?
There are more than 100 double-blind positive studies confirming the clinical effect of Cold Laser Therapy. More than 2,500 research reports are published. More than 90% of these studies do verify the clinical value of laser therapy.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
That all depends on your individual case. The length of treatment recommended in the FDA study is 15 visits. Many people say they feel substantial relief after just a handful of treatments. Some after just one.
Does Laser Therapy Cause any Side Effects?
Laser therapy does not invoke side effects. In all the clinical trials which can be found in the up-to-date clinical literature no side effects were ever observed during or after the treatment.
Is Laser Therapy based on thermal effects?
The effectiveness of Laser therapy does not depend on thermal effects. The energy is delivered to tissues directly, and not through heat. The heat sensation is an indirect effect, due to the increase in the local circulation of the treated area.
