What is cold laser therapy and how does it work?
Cold laser is different than heat emiting lasers that are used in many surgical procedures to cut or cauterized tissue in that they do not have a thermal effect and are used to stimulate, rather than destroy tissue.
Cold lasers emit visible and non visible light that is applied to the injured area and/or to spinal nerve roots that innervate the innervate area. Laser Light (photons) are absorbed by the cells of the injured tissue resulting in an increase in cellular metabolism, increased mitochondrail production of ATP and increased cell membrane permeability. This results in increased microcirculation and enhanced tissue regeneration. The overall effects are decreased pain and inflammation including increased range of motion.
