Cold Laser Therapy
cold laser therapy for neck, low back and shoulder pain.       
The goal of laser therapy is to deliver light energy units from infrared laser radiation, called photons, to damaged cells. The consensus of experts is that photons absorbed by the cells through laser therapy stimuate the mitochondria to accelerate production of ATP. This biochemical increase in cell energy is used to transform live cells from a state of illness to a stable, healthy state.
 
 
What is Laser or Light Therapy? Low level laser & LED Therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near infared) to create therapeutic effects. These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling.  The light may be provided by a low power laser or an LED (light emitting diode).  Laser emits energy in a form of photons; these particles of energy are absorbed by the cells and tissue resulting in conversion of light into biochemical energy. Multiple physiological responses are thereby initiated and normal cell function is restored.  This process is curative and eliminates symptoms (i.e. pain, edema etc.)
 
Research Demonstrates
 
  • Injuries treated with laser therapy heal faster
  • Laser Therapy has a strengthening effect on tissue repair
  • Laser Therapy improves blood flow and lymphatic drainage
  • It is an effective means of relief for many pain syndromes
  • It can improve immune response
