Cold laser therapy is the application of a low-energy laser to the tissue in order to stimulate cellular metabolism and enhance biochemical functioning. Enhanced healing is one of the benefits of cold laser therapy. Cold laser reduces the duration of inflammation as well as enhances specific repair and healing processes. It has been proven to provide pain relief, reduce damage due to injury, and restore function. It actually biostimulates tissue growth and repair which results in accelerated healing and dramatic decrease in pain and inflammation. Cold laser actually heals injured tissues as well. Cold laser therapy also provides a powerful non-addictive form of pain management.
Cold laser therapy has been used effectively for many conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, bursitis, fibromyalgia, back and neck pain, osteoarthritis, neuralgia and herniated discs. It is also excellent on sprains and strains.
