Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy is low-intensity laser therapy that stimulates healing while using low levels of light.
During this procedure, different wavelengths and outputs of low-level light are applied directly to a targeted area. The body tissue then absorbs the light. The red and near-infrared light cause a reaction and the damaged cells respond with a physiological response that promotes regeneration.
Although you’ll feel the laser device touching your skin, the procedure is painless and non-invasive. There will be no sound and you’ll feel no vibration or heat. Each treatment typically takes only a few minutes.
Chiropractors, sports medicine, and physical therapy practices often use cold laser therapy in the treatment of minor injuries and sprains, such as:
Pain associated with muscle spasms
It’s also used to help reduce swelling and promote healing of the joints and soft tissue.
