Cold Laser Therapy
Low level laser therapy, "cold laser", is an alternative method of treatment where the injured body part is exposed to lasers of low intensity, which stimulate the cells and tissues and quicken the healing process. The photon energy produced by the laser beam, is transformed into biochemical energy and the cumulative effect after subsequent sessions at set intervals restores the normal functioning of the cells.
Low level laser therapy is very popular because it creates quick initiation of healing, alleviation of pain, inflammation and no negative effects on the cells, which are functioning normally. Laser therapy restores normal body functioning without the use of painkillers, is non toxic and non-invasive.
Low level laser therapy is very safe and its capability to penetrate the tissues makes it a stimulant, which induces cell growth and tissue repair. Through enhanced activation of the mitochondria (power plants) in the cells, the damaged cells are restored to normal functioning. Increased blood circulation to the area also quickens the healing process.
Conditions treated with cold laser therapy:
- Inflammatory conditions, bursitis, tendonitis, fasciitis
- Speeds tissue repair in ligament strains and sprains, burns, muscle tears, sports injuries and lacerations
- Joint pain such as arthritis, joint pain (ankle, shoulder, hip and knee), carpal tunnel and sciatic pain
- Acute and chronic pain control for back, rheumatoid arthritis, tendonitis, discogenic radiculopathy and neuralgia
- Skin lesions like ulcers and dermatological problems
