Cold laser, or low-level laser, is a therapy that uses low-level lasers to alter cellular function. Non-thermal photons of light penetrate the skin to reach the targeted area. It is absorbed and interacts with the light-sensitive elements in the cell.
This results in reduced inflammation, normalization of damaged or injured tissues, and increased intracellular metabolism-which reduces healing time. You can know more about the working of cold laser therapy via https://www.sheldonwellness.com/services/cold-laser-therapy/.
Cold laser is used to relieve pain for a wide variety of ailments that include:
- Soft tissue injuries
- Sports injuries
- Muscle strain
- Acute and chronic pain
The therapy is also pain-free, drug-free, and non-addictive, as opposed to most of the leading treatments, and is performed right in our office. Patients can use cold laser in conjunction with all of our other therapies and generally are recommended to do so. This therapy only lasts between 10 and 15 minutes each time, which makes it convenient, as well.
Not only does it offer many advantages over alternative forms of treatment, but cold laser is also a very versatile therapy. Not only does it provide increased circulation to the targeted area, promoting natural healing, but it also reduces inflammation and breaks up scar tissue. Hence, cold laser therapy can help to treat about 300 health issues.
