It’s the new thing!
Not only is it new, it’s powerful and we believe it has become the very best way to supplement adjustments in order to bring our patients to a better overall level of health.
The Dallas Cowboys recently purchased their own cold laser machine in order to treat their athletes more effectively and to reduce their healing time by up to three times that of the normal healing time. We feel that if it’s good enough for the Cowboys, then it’s good enough for our patients!
What Is Cold Laser Therapy?
Low Level Laser Therapy (Cold Laser) is a treatment whereby a laser is utilized to emit high intensity light treat chronic and acute pain and stimulate healing. Cold Lasers can strengthen and heal damaged cells. Using photochemical processes, laser light inserts bio-photons into damaged cells. The tissues are healed, and pain disappears. If damaged cells have died, the bio-photons help the division of neighboring cells, generating new tissues, and thus bring about healing. Therapeutic Laser has been well-researched and has been around since the mid 1950’s. In fact, insurance companies are currently in the process of testing cold laser therapy extensively.
Thanks to some of the current technology, the power of the lasers has increased, while the costs have decreased. Cold laser therapy is noninvasive and produces no heat. With very few side effects and very few reasons to prevent it’s use, cold laser therapy is one of the most effective healing therapies available in today’s healthcare system. The treatment works by using high intensity light to penetrate the tissue of the body. The light waves stimulate the cells, exciting them to speed up the healing process. Think about the science experiment in junior high. You have a balloon that is tied off at the end. You heat the balloon and it expands. You did not add air but it expanded due to the molecules being excited by the heat.
Treatment is often completed in only ten to twelve sessions. Cold laser therapy is not only significant in reducing treatment time, but it is cost effective as well.
