Cold Laser Therapy: What’s It All About?Posted on October 10, 2012 in Cold Laser Therapy, Low Level Laser Therapy
Though you may recognize cold laser or low level laser therapy by its name, can you honestly say that you know what it is and how it works? Before you go ahead and make any assumptions, allow us here at Cold Laser Therapy in Rochester, NY to explain the ins and outs of the treatment.
For starters, cold laser therapy is a therapeutic non-surgical medical grade laser treatment that non-invasively and painlessly penetrates three to five inches deep into the body with non-visible and visible light, into an injured area, to stimulate a new healing cycle. Now we know that this may be difficult to picture, but it actually does work!
When that laser light penetrates the body, it stimulates those injured or damaged muscles, ligaments, nerves, bones, joints and soft tissue that have been causing you all of that pain and discomfort. That stimulation takes effect on the cells in a way that increases lymph flow and decreases the firing of pain fibers, reinitiating the healing process. As treatment continues, your joint mobility will increase, while you feel inflammation decrease and decrease until it’s gone all together. Your body will be restored to its pre-injury condition and you won’t have had to endure any painful surgeries.
