Q. What is Cold Laser Therapy?
A. Cold Laser Therapy delivers specific light energy in the form of photons to damaged cells in order to increase blood flow and stimulate natural physiological activity.
Q. How does it work?
A. Cold Laser Therapy increases blood supply and ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) production, which is really the “gas” that runs the body. ATP activates and promotes the body’s own natural healing processes. This can accelerate the healing of damaged tissues, aides in the reduction of pain and inflammation increasing joint mobility and promoting a healthy cell metabolism.
Q. How long are Cold Laser Therapy treatments?
A. Applications can vary based on the strength of the laser being used. Different strengths penetrate to different levels within the body and can also create a variety of responses within the tissues being treated. Treatment times can range from as little as 30 seconds to as much as 15 minutes.
