One of the most popular Google searches right now in the Amarillo, TX region is the search for cold laser Amarillo. What does that mean exactly? It means that more and more people in our area are hearing about cold laser therapy. Cold laser is also known by the name “Low Level Laser.” So, why not call it one or the other? Why have it separated into cold laser or low level laser?
It is actually pretty smart when you think about it. Our common perception of the word “laser” is of a burning and cutting laser. Low level laser commonly used more and more by surgeons, chiropractors in Amarillo, and physical therapists is not a burning laser. It’s actually just enough to excite the tissues in the area without causing any tissue damage.
If the originators of the therapy wanted to avoid any negative connotation or association, they would need to make it sound much less threatening. Thus, the moniker Cold Laser was born.
Now, back to the search “cold laser Amarillo.” It appears that more and more folks are getting the word and getting interested in cold laser therapy in Amarillo. Therefore, more people are searching for those offices like ours, Creek Stone Integrated Care, that offer the service.
History of Cold Laser Treatment
Cold Laser treatment was originally born back in the 1967, when a Hungarian scientist named Dr. Endre Mester was doing some testing with mice and carcinogenesis and noticed an added benefit of the cold laser. Where the mice had been shaved for the experiment, the hair grew back faster in the population of mice that were treated with the cold laser. Pretty cool, right?
Since then, scientists, researchers, and companies have eagerly expanded on treatment with cold lasers to the point we are at today. Nowadays, the search term “cold laser Amarillo” yields a wealth of information on WHERE you can find cold laser therapy but not necessarily WHAT you can expect from cold laser.
