Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy involves the application of light in specific wavelengths and frequencies to facilitate cellular healing, reduce pain and manage inflammation. Light photons penetrate to various tissue depths to stimulate mitochondrial ATP production (the energy substrate of our cells) to provide the energy needed for these processes to occur. This type of laser treatment is considered “cold” because it does not generate heat and is non-thermal in nature.
Cold laser is excellent to use for both acute and chronic injuries, particularly on issues that tend to be slow to heal such as tendons, ligaments, cartilage and intervertebral discs. We have also seen excellent results using cold laser in concussion cases.
