Cold Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy, also called Low Level Laser Therapy, is a non-surgical form of treatment that works by emitting specific wavelengths of light stimulating the tissue on a cellular level, dramatically reducing musculoskeletal pain and inflammation as well as promoting tissue repair. This is not a heat treatment; the effects are photochemical, thereby transforming cells from a state of damage to a stable, healthy state.

Cold Laser has been used for many years for acute and chronic injuries; including Sports Injuries, arthritic joints, bursitis, tendonitis, and back and neck pain. Over 4,000 studies have been conducted worldwide to validate its effectiveness; showing that pain and swelling are significantly decreased, while range of motion is increased.

Moreover, studies indicate that Cold Laser can have a direct effect on the cartilage within a joint. It has been shown to produce more Fibroblasts, which are needed to make cartilage. In addition, it helps suppress Interleukin-1, which releases enzymes that cause cartilage destruction. Studies also show that there is an increase in the tensile strength of the tissue/cartilage: which is done by improving the binding of inter- and intra-molecular hydrogen, thus creating stronger bonds within the tissue overall.
