Low-level Laser or Cold Laser Therapy also known as Phototherapy, exposes the cells of the body to light, and particular wavelengths of light are able to produce photochemical reactions, stimulating the cells of the body into producing more energy. This increase in energy levels allows the cells to work more effectively in properly balancing the cellular components, so that the cells can function properly. The laser light functions as biochemical energy and improves the efficiency of the body’s healing capabilities. The result is that the body is able to heal itself in a shorter period of time.
Low-level Laser Therapy has been used successfully to treat athletic injuries, acute & chronic conditions, repetitive strain disorders, tissue healing and much more. Some common injuries treated with Low-level Laser Therapy include: repetitive strain injuries, muscle sprains/strains, tendon/ligament tears, bursitis/tendonitis, Osteoarthritis, Fibromyalgia, post-surgical scarring, lower back pain/disc herniations and much more.
The unique healing effects of Low-level Laser Therapy include: increased cell metabolism, improved localized blood circulation, development of collagen and muscle tissue, relief from acute and chronic pain, reduced localized inflammation and edema, stimulation of the immune system and stimulation of nerve function. This innovative therapeutic alternative may also eliminate the need for painful, debilitating surgeries and drug therapies so often accompanied by harmful side effects.
