When tissues are damaged, cells begin to die and scar tissue formation often begins. Both of these consequences can slow or even limit the healing process. Modern day cold laser units have been specifically engineered to produce the essential wavelengths of light necessary to stimulate the damaged cells, break up the formed scar tissue, and stimulate the healing process.
Cold Laser therapy reduces pain, increases wound and tissue healing, increases circulation, stimulates regeneration of peripheral nerves, improves nerve function, reduces muscle spasms, speeds up tissue repair, reduces inflammation, swelling and scar tissue formation.
Is it safe?
The Cold Laser is a pain-free, non-surgical medical device that works by stimulating the body’s natural healing processes, providing pain relief and reducing injury damage. This leading edge technology has an impressive success rate of returning patients to work, sports and competitive activities, as well as everyday life. Patients treated with the Cold Laser often show a higher level of function, both during and after the treatment period. The therapeutic laser provides a tremendous alternative for those facing surgery.
There are over 3000 scientific research studies on laser therapy that have verified the clinical value and effectiveness of laser therapy.
Is it painful?
During the treatment the patient will feel deep soothing warmth. This pleasant sensation reassures the patient that the laser is stimulating cellular activity. People with pacemakers and other types of implants or prosthesis can still safely receive cold laser treatments.
What does it treat?
Laser therapy quickly and effectively relieves pain for
- plantar fasciitis, Neck Pain
- Low Back Pain
- Foot Pain
- Plantar fasciitis
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Knee Pain
- Shoulder pain/frozen shoulder
- Various Tendonitis (Tennis Elbow)
- Painful Joints
- Sprains and strains
- Disc Issues
- Jaw Pain/TMJ
- Various Forms of Acute and Chronic Pain
- ….. and many more conditions
Alternative modalities may relieve pain but do nothing to promote deep healing of damaged tissue. Electrical stimulation is often uncomfortable. It lacks the consistent pain reduction of laser therapy. Ultrasound is not as effective at blocking pain, and studies show that it weakens tissue. Neither of these methods provides the same stimulation of tissue healing as laser therapy.
With treatment times of 15-45 minutes, the Cold Laser allows many conditions to vastly improve within a few visits.
