Cold Laser Therapy
What is it?
Laser and LED beams of light can stimulate the cells in the body that repair tissue, reduce inflammation and transmit pain. They are called cold lasers or soft lasers because they do not emit heat and therefore do not cause tissue damage, but do not make the tissue cold.
At this time, scientific studies indicate that cold lasers are more effective at penetrating the skin than LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) and are therefore more effective. Laser light is able to penetrate through tissue layers and help to stimulate cellular energy and metabolic processes which promote healing and tissue regeneration (including increased collagen and epithelial production). Cold Laser light can also stimulate the release of natural pain killing endorphins within the body which facilitate long lasting pain relief.
