What is Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold Laser Therapy (also known as Low Level Laser Therapy, or LLLT) makes use of much more innovative technology than chiropractic, physical therapy, and other manipulative treatment methods. Cold Laser Therapy involves specific light wavelengths to engage with damaged tissue to boost the body’s natural healing process. Patients who prefer a non-invasive approach when dealing with swelling and pain can opt for cold laser therapy.
The technology involved consists of handheld devices similar to flashlights. These cold laser devices are pointed over the damaged part of the body for several minutes. The strength of these lasers allow the light photons to pass 2-5 centimeters through the skin. This allows for the energy to directly engage with the damaged tissue, thus boosting the patient’s natural healing.
Cold Laser Therapy Goals
– Non-Invasive Approach: Cold Laser Therapy requires no surgical tools and no medication, making it highly appealing to many patients looking for a cleaner and quicker treatment alternative. However, as Cold Laser Therapy is less intrusive, it also requires anywhere from 10-30 treatments.
– Pain Reduction: By promoting a biochemical boost in cell energy, Cold Laser Therapy utilize the body’s natural healing process and reduce pain and stiffness in damaged areas.
