Cold Laser Therapy
The first thing people usually say when I tell them we do Cold Laser Therapy is: “You do WHAT?!?” Cold laser (Low Level Light) therapy has been around for many many years but only for the past few years have there been units available for small office use.
Cold lasers are healing lasers. No, they’re not like cutting lasers used during surgery, or the light sabers on Star Wars! These lasers are designed to actually encourage your cells to function the way they were normally created to function by returning them back to what we call “homeostasis” or “normal”.
The lasers really work off of frequencies. Frequencies are like very small vibrations, some so small (like with the laser) that you can’t even feel or see them. Set to specific frequencies to correspond with different tissues in the human body (organs, skin, cartilage, etc) the laser frequencies penetrate through the tissue and work on a cellular level to help that particular cell do its job better.
Benefits of Cold Laser Therapy
- decreasing inflammation
- reversing scar tissue
- decreasing pain
- burn repair
- much much more
We’ve seen dramatic results with extremity injuries (shoulders, knees, etc), post surgical healing (abdominal surgeries, c-sections, knee replacements, shoulder repair, brain surgery..) and pain reduction that is due to inflammation like neck spasms or hot low backs.
We incorporate the laser with almost every single treatment we do in our office because it speeds up the healing process so much.
How Does it Feel to Get Treated?
The great thing about the laser is that you don’t feel a thing while it is working on you so anyone can use it! If you feel like you or someone you love would benefit from the laser, contact our office.
