FDA approved Cold Laser Therapy, also known as Low Level Laser Therapy or Phototherapy, has been widely used by health care professionals for over thirty-five years. In addition, this therapy has been the subject of numerous studies with over 3,500 scientific papers published worldwide.
Cold Laser Therapy is treatment that produces a beam of light in which high energies can be concentrated to a specific area. This laser light has unique physical properties, which no other ordinary light has. The unique properties of coherence and monochromaticity are the key to why laser light is so effective compared to other kinds of light in pain reduction and healing.
Cold Laser Therapy can strengthen and heal damaged cells. Using photochemical processes, laser light inserts bio-photons into damaged cells. The cells begin to produce energy (ATP), which improves their function, assists their division, strengthens the body's immune system, and causes the secretion of various hormones. 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.
