Cold laser therapy is a treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and help accelerate your healing process. Cold laser treatment can be used on people suffering from acute and chronic conditions in order to eliminate pain and swelling, increase functionality, and reduce spasms.
This laser does not heat up your skin more than about 0.2 degrees Fahrenheit, if at all. When the light energy passes through your skin and reaches the injured area, the energy is absorbed and interacts with the light-sensitive elements in your cells. When cells absorb this light energy, it will assist with normalizing damaged or injured tissue, reducing pain, inflammation, edema, and overall healing time.
Some of the conditions that benefit from cold laser therapy are:
- Acute pain
- Chronic pain
- Strained msucles
- Soft tissue injury
- Tennis elbow
- Back pain
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Sprained Ligaments
