Cold Laser Therapy

Alleviate pain, reduce edema and inflammation, and promote healing.

Low-Level Laser, also known as a cold laser, is a cutting-edge technology designed to alleviate pain, reduce edema and inflammation, and promote healing through the use of low-intensity photonic energy. This non-invasive and fast-acting therapy harnesses the power of light to initiate painless bio-stimulation and cellular regeneration.

Cold Laser functions by delivering photons of light to the targeted tissue, where they are absorbed by the mitochondria, the energy powerhouses of cells. Cold Laser’s potential applications are numerous and it has received FDA clearance for specific treatments, such as Low Back Pain, Plantar Fasciitis and Neck/Shoulder Pain. 

Increases Cellular Energy (ATP Production): Cold laser therapy stimulates mitochondria, the cell's energy-producing organelles, to enhance the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is a crucial molecule that provides energy for cellular activities and accelerates the repair and regeneration of tissues.

 

Cellular Signaling: Laser light at specific wavelengths can initiate signaling pathways within cells. This can lead to the upregulation of genes associated with tissue repair and regeneration.

 

Reduction of Inflammation: Cold laser therapy can decrease inflammation by modulating the production of pro-inflammatory molecules, such as cytokines and prostaglandins. This helps alleviate pain and swelling in injured or inflamed tissues.

 

Increased Blood Flow (Vasodilation): The therapy can promote vasodilation (expansion of blood vessels), which improves blood flow to the treated area. Enhanced circulation delivers oxygen and nutrients to the tissues and removes waste products, fostering the healing process.

 

Release of Endorphins: Cold laser therapy may trigger the release of endorphins, the body's natural painkillers, providing pain relief and enhancing the sense of well-being.

 

Cell Proliferation and Tissue Repair: Laser light at specific wavelengths can stimulate cell proliferation, collagen production, and tissue regeneration. This is particularly beneficial for wound healing and tissue repair.

 

Neurological Effects: Cold laser therapy may have neuroprotective effects by reducing oxidative stress and inflammation in neural tissues.
