Cold Laser Therapy – what does it do?
Cold Laser Therapy, also known as Low-level Laser Therapy, uses low levels of light to help stimulate the healing process of damaged tissues. It also helps relieve pain and inflammation of the tissues by reducing swelling.
Cold Laser Therapy is effective and a non-invasive treatment to help with healing, with typical wavelengths used between 600 nanometers to 950 nanometers. The red and near-infrared light used during Cold Laser Therapy causes a reaction in the damaged tissues, and the cells respond with a physiological reaction that promotes regeneration.
It can help with minor injuries and sprains, including:
- Tennis/Golfer’s elbow
- Lower Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Ligament Sprains
- Muscle Strains
- Muscle Spasms
Cold Laser Therapy is a painless and a drug-free alternative to painkillers and anti-inflammatory medications.
