what is cold laser treatment?
Cold laser therapy utilizes a narrow spectrum of red and near-infrared wavelength light to improve circulation, diminish pain, and reduce inflammation. Together, these photochemical benefits also accelerate tissue healing. This treatment is totally drug, pain, and surgery free and has been FDA approved for over a decade.
the types of injuries helped by cold laser treatment
Acute injuries (strains, sprains, and shoulder injuries)
Repetitive-use injuries (such as Carpal Tunnel)
Chronic issues (such as frozen shoulder and Arthritis)
THE UNIQUE POWER OF COLD LASER THERAPY
Light cleanly passes through tissue barriers, allowing for this treatment to reach areas that would otherwise be inaccessible to practitioners. Through cold laser therapy, soft or hard tissues can be treated, including muscles, ligaments, and bones. Microcirculation is promoted through the introduction of controlled wavelengths, bringing about health benefits from the cellular level up. Laser light itself does not directly produce improvements; rather, it accelerates the natural recovery of tissues within the body.
How long has cold laser treatment been around?
Laser therapy has been used in Europe since the 1970’s and was approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2005.
How long is a session?
A typical session will last between 5-20 minutes, depending upon the severity of your condition and the range of tissues the practitioner is reaching.
How many sessions are required before I feel better?
As with the duration of each session, many factors influence the total length of treatment. However, most conditions are improved within 6 to 12 sessions.
Is this the same cold laser treatment some vets use?
Yes! Many veterinarians have observed the same benefits of cold laser therapy, and introduced the technique into their practice.
