What is Cold Laser Therapy and How is it Beneficial?
You may have never heard of cold laser therapy before. So what exactly is it?
Cold laser therapy is an innovative technology when compared to much longer-standing treatment methods such as chiropractic (1895), acupuncture (between 8000 and 3500 B.C.) and physiotherapy (between 500 and 400 B.C.).
The purpose of cold laser treatment is to provide damaged cells within the body with light energy via infrared laser radiation (also known as photons). Once the cells absorb these photons by way of laser therapy, mitochondria are stimulated and the production of ATP increases. This biochemical process boosts energy within the cell and can be utilized to repair damaged / ill cells to a state of healthiness.
Today, a variety of different fields of medicine are expanding to include light and / or laser therapy. Recent technological advancements in low-level lasers has made it possible for every day people such as chiropractors to acquire their very own. Low-level lasers (LLL) is another term for cold lasers, such as those used in the TLC-2000 Theralase laser system.
A Proven Technology
According to Theralase, nearly 4000 experiments have been done as of late to validate the effectiveness of cold laser treatments. Findings from the associated reports include:
- Alternative to pain killers
- Non-invasive, non-toxic
- Very safe and simple to implement
- 90 percent effectiveness in treating various health ailments
- Work synergistically with other treatment methods
Cold laser therapy is a non-intrusive alternative to receiving acupuncture, physiotherapy and surgery. However, it may or may not be able to completely replace these other forms of treatment; it usually works best when used in a tandem treatment plan – such as with chiropractic care, for example. Just ask Eric about His Cold Laser Therapy Experience at RHC.
