Cold laser therapy or Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue. It can be used on patients who suffer from a variety of acute and chronic conditions in order to help eliminate pain, swelling, reduce spasms and increase functionality. When the photons of laser energy reaches the target tissue, it absorbs into the tissue creating a vasodilation, allowing oxygen rich blood to reach even the inner-most part of the joint. This accelerates healing, reduces inflammation and swelling and increases intracellular metabolism by a process called photobiostimulation.
We use the superpulsed Lumix 2 100 watt laser which has two frequencies: 650 mn and 910 nm. Superpulsed technology allows us to deliver a powerful laser treatment and without causing any damage due to thermal heating (as what is caused by other lasers).
For years, physicians have been using cold laser therapy on patients who are seeking effective, alternative methods for pain relief. Since 1967 there have been over 2,500 clinical studies published worldwide. Many of these studies are double-blinded, placebo-controlled and have demonstrated cold laser therapy to be a proven method for pain relief.
