Cold laser therapy utilizes low levels of light to trigger healing. The procedure reduces swelling and pain while increasing functionality and reducing spasms. Cold laser therapy has an antiedema effect, causing vasodilation, the activation of the lymphatic drainage system, which helps to drain swollen areas. Cold laser therapy is also referred to as soft laser therapy, low power laser therapy and low level laser therapy. It’s used on patients suffering from chronic or acute conditions.
Low level wavelengths of light are applied directly to the problem area. As the tissue absorbs the light, the wavelengths create a biological reaction to the red and infrared light improving regeneration. Cold laser therapy creates no sound, vibration or heat and it’s a painless procedure that takes only a few minutes. It’s safe, cost-effective, nontoxic and noninvasive.
