Cold Laser Therapy
Laser is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Unlike the high power lasers that produce heat and can destroy tissue, low level lasers affect the cellular energy of the underlying tissues in order to repair. Studies show that low level laser therapy (LLLT), or cold lasers, increase ATP production in the mitochondria of the cell. This means more energy is now available for many processes in the body and allows for more efficient healing.
Cold lasers have been successfully used for acute and chronic pain reduction, soft tissue strains and sprains, inflammation reduction, enhanced tissue wound healing and more. They can also be used to stimulate energy systems such as the acupuncture meridian system and the chakra system.
Our laser has a wavelength of 635 nanometers (NM), that of a healthy cell, and is found within the “red” spectrum of visible light. It has an anabolic effect on tissues. Treatment times vary from seconds to minutes.
