What’s cold laser therapy?
Cold laser therapy is low-intensity laser therapy that stimulates healing while using low levels of light.
The technique is called “cold” laser therapy because the low levels of light aren’t enough to heat your body’s tissue. The level of light is low when compared to other forms of laser therapy, such as those used to destroy tumors and coagulate tissue.
Surgical and aesthetic lasers heat the tissue being treated. True to its name, cold laser therapy does not.
How does cold laser therapy work?
During this procedure, different wavelengths and outputs of low-level light are applied directly to a targeted area. The body tissue then absorbs the light. The red and near-infrared light cause a reaction, and the damaged cells respond with a physiological reaction that promotes regeneration.
Superficial tissue is commonly treated with wavelengths between 600 and 700 nanometers (nm). For deeper penetration, wavelengths between 780 and 950 nm are used.
Although you’ll feel the laser device touching your skin, the procedure is painless and noninvasive. There will be no sound and you’ll feel no vibration or heat. Each treatment typically takes only a few minutes.
What’s cold laser therapy used for?
Doctors, dentists, physical therapists, and other medical professionals use cold laser therapy in a variety of ways. The main uses for cold laser therapy are tissue repair and relief from pain and inflammation. Minor injuries and sprains, Sports medicine and physical therapy practices often use cold laser therapy in the treatment of minor injuries and sprains, such as:
It’s also used to help reduce swelling and promote healing of the joints and soft tissue. and conditions, including: traumatic brain injury (TBI), & spinal cord injury
Your brain consists of networks. It creates pathways automatically, helping you function without the need to make decisions every second. These pathways are created based on the requirements of your daily life and eventually become your habits.
Your brain is a very flexible system. New pathways can be created up into old age. This amazing capability is called neuroplasticity and helps you adapt to changing requirements in your daily life. Throughout your entire life, your brain can build up new pathways and get rid of the ones you do not need anymore. By engaging in an active lifestyle, you can train your brain and improve neuroplasticity and your brain’s health.
