What is Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold laser therapy delivers specific light energy in the form of photons, to damaged cells in order to increase blood flow and stimulate natural physiological activities.
How does it work?
Cold laser light increases blood supply and ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) production, which is the "gas" that runs the body. ATP activates and promotes the body's own natural healing processes. This can accelerate the healing of damaged tissues, aides in the reduction of pain and inflammation increasing joint mobility and promoting a healthy cell metabolism.
How long does each treatment take?
The typical treatment duration is 5-15 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated and the condition being treated.
How often should the area be treated?
This depends on the nature of the condition being treated. For some acute conditions, 1-6 treatments may suffice. Those of a more chronic nature may require 10-15 treatments. Conditions such as severe arthritis may require ongoing periodic care to control pain.
How long before the results are felt?
You may feel improvement in your condition (usually pain reduction) after the very first treatment. Sometimes you will not feel improvement for a number of treatments. This does not mean that nothing is happening. Each treatment is cumulative and results are often felt after 3-4 sessions.
