Also known as low-level laser therapy, cold laser therapy uses specific wavelengths of light for the purpose of interacting with the tissue. As a result, it leads into the acceleration of the healing process of the damaged tissues. It stimulates all cells, including nerves, cartilage, ligaments, and muscles. It is a relatively new process, and it targets the same pressure points that are targeted by acupuncture. It is different from aesthetic lasers and surgical procedures in the sense that it does not heat the tissues.
It works basically through the application of low-level light in the specific portion that is meant to be treated. The tissue absorbs the light that is applied. A physiological reaction will be stimulated, which is where healing comes in. Different wavelengths are used in cold laser therapy, the intensity of which will differ depending on the condition of the individual. Wavelengths can typically be from 600 to 900 nanometers. The higher the wavelength is, the deeper the penetration will be. A device will touch your skin during the treatment, but you will not feel vibration or pain. It is noninvasive, painless, and can be completed within a few minutes.
Since the time cold laser therapy has been introduced, it has been the subject of numerous clinical studies. Although most of these studies were small scale, they had one conclusion – it is effective in the treatment of various conditions. Some of the issues that it can address include acute and chronic pain, ligament sprains, soft tissue injuries, muscle strains, arthritis, back pain, skin problems, carpal tunnel syndrome, knee pain, and tendonitis, among others. It can be effective in the elimination of swelling, increase of functionality, and alleviation of pain.
