Cold Laser Therapy is one of the most amazing advanced medical technologies to surface in the last 20 years. Cold laser Therapy utilizes the light that we see is the visible part of the spectrum of electromagnetic radiation. Just picture a rainbow. The light that is visible to us is a specific range of colors in that spectrum, but not the whole spectrum.
Since 1967, more than 2,000 clinical studies have been published worldwide on Cold Lasers. In fact, the proof of the tremendous healing potential of the Cold Laser FINALLY was put to the test… the outcome was FDA Approval in February of 2002!
Cold Laser was initially used to treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Research boasts over a 70% success rate with Cold Laser treating Carpal Tunnel. Compare this to the “other” alternative (surgery), which has a dismal success rate (~ 33%) and it’s plain to see why this BEGAN as the “Carpal Tunnel Treatment”.
Tons of research has since show the tremendous healing power of the Cold Laser for many OTHER conditions as well. Such as: Rotator cuff, ankle sprains, plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, tennis elbow, golfers elbow, muscle strains, etc.
The Cold Laser is a MAJOR part of the arsenal for many professional sports physicians due to the tremendous healing power. Generally speaking the Cold Laser:
● Relieves acute and chronic pain
● Increases the speed, quality and tensile strength of tissue repair
● Increases blood supply
● Stimulates the immune system
● Stimulates nerve function
● Develops collagen and muscle tissue
● Helps generate new and healthy cells and tissue
● Promotes faster wound healing and clot formation
● Reduces inflammation (swelling)
The BEST thing about Cold Laser (besides it takes away your pain and HEALS the injured tissue), is that it doesn’t hurt at all. In fact, most patients report feeling only a slight tingling or warmth… if anything at all!
In Short: The cold laser addresses the SOFT TISSUES (Nerves, tendons, ligaments, muscles, etc.) and it takes away pain & swelling and actually HEALS injured tissue WITHOUT the major potential side effects and poor success rates of risky drugs and surgery!
