Cold Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy, also referred to a low level laser therapy (LLLT) is a non-invasive and simple way to treat pain and several other health conditions.
What is cold laser or low level laser therapy (LLLT)?
Laser Therapy is the application of red and near infra-red light over injured tissue to improve soft tissue healing and provide relief for acute and chronic pain.
 
The intensity of LLLT lasers is not high like a surgical laser, there is no heating effect. The effect of cold laser is photochemical, similar to like photosynthesis in plants. Red light aids the production of ATP thereby providing the cell with more energy which in turn means the cell is in optimum condition to play its part in a natural healing process.
 
Laser Therapy is used to:
Increase the speed, quality and tensile strength of tissue repair
Give pain relief
Resolve inflammation
 
How does LLLT work?
Like photosynthesis, appropriate wavelengths and power of light, at certain intensities, can increase ATP production at the cellular level by targeting the fourth enzyme in the electron transport chain and increasing its productivity. Increased ATP means increased cellular energy, which aides in more effective pain relief, tissue healing and regeneration.
 
Laser Therapy is Popularly Used For:
Pain Relief (muscles, joints, nerves)          Fibromyalgia / Myofascial Pain
Whiplash                                                        Sprains and strains
Plantar Fasciitis                                             Post-operative pain
Wound Healing                                             Post-operative wounds
Trauma                                                           Tennis Elbow
Arthritis                                                          Golfer’s Elbow
Migraine headaches                                    TMJ Dysfunction
Lower back pain                                           Soft tissue injuries
Repetitive Stress Injuries (RSI)                   Swelling
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)                  Burns
Tendonitis                                                     Rotator Cuff Injury 
 
How Long are the Treatments & What are they like?
Treatments can vary in time from seconds to minutes depending on the condition. Research studies show that there may be a dose dependent response, so it may be more effective to treat a condition multiple times at lower doses, rather than applying a single treatment at a high dose.
 
The treatments are painless and there is no immediate sensation from the laser other than it being in contact with the skin. Generally the laser is placed in direct contact with the skin over the affected area.
