Cold Laser Therapy uses applied beams to improve tissue repair, pain reduction and inflammation reduction. This therapy is used by our physicians at Nelson and Nelson Chiropractic. Treatment sessions usually last ten minutes and are frequented two or more times weekly.
Cold Laser Therapy has been used on various sport injuries, arthritic joints, neuropathic pain syndromes, back pain, and neck pain for many years. Over two hundred clinical trials, randomized, have been published on Cold Laser Therapy mostly involving patient pain and after effects.
How It Works
When the body receives any injury, cells are damaged, resulting in failure to function within normal parameters. Low level lasers, from the Cold Laser machine, penetrate deeply into skin working on restoration of cellular function. It reverts the abnormal cellular function back to normal cellular function.
Cold Lasers are non-heat producing lights, which are locked in a specific wavelength optimal for treatment and penetrating into deep tissue layers. Cold Laser or Low Level Laser Therapy is emerging as a modality representation of Therapeutic Arts.
The biological effects of Low Level Laser Therapy have shown significant acceleration and enhancement of the body’s natural defense and repair abilities. By providing inflammation reduction and healing processes, Low Level Laser Therapy has proven to provide multiple benefits. The benefits include pain relief, damage reduction due to the injury or loss of function, and rapid cellular repair. Low Level Laser Therapy enables the body to maintain stronger tissues once healed.
