EXAMPLES OF COLD LASER THERAPY APPLICATIONS
WHAT IS COLD LASER THERAPY?
When the body has an injury, the cells are damaged and fail to function within
normal parameters. Low level lasers from the Cold Laser machine penetrate
deeply into the skin and work to restore this normal cellular function. Cold Laser
uses a non-heat producing light laser, which is locked at a specific wavelength
that is optimal for treatment and can penetrate deeply into tissue. Cold Laser
or Low Level Laser Therapy is emerging as the therapeutic modality in the
healing arts community.
The biological effects of Low Level Laser Therapy have been shown to
significantly accelerate and enhance the body's natural defense and repair
abilities when injured. By reducing the duration of inflammation as well as
enhancing specific repair and healing process, Low Level Laser Therapy
has been proven to provide pain relief, reduce damage due to the injury and
loss of function. Low Level Laser Therapy enables the body to have a more
rapid repair and stronger tissues once healed.
Physiologic effects include improved metabolism, circulation and
PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES: To treat top athletes in order to return
them to competition at a much accelerated pace. If you remember
last year, Lance Armstrong and the US Postal Service team were
involved in quite a few bad wrecks, yet were able to race the next
day. According to Jeff Spencer, Armstrong's chiropractor, who
treated him with Cold Laser, if an athlete can get in for laser
treatment within 2-3 hours of the injury, rehabilitation time can
be cut in half.
BURN VICTIMS: To accelerate wound and burn healing, at a
rate 25-40% faster and with less scarring. This is an excellent
demonstration of external healing reflecting what is happening
on the cellular level where internal healing is often neither seen
nor felt by the victim.
NERVE AND SPINAL INJURIES: To rehabilitate severed nerve
bundles, at a rate 300% faster than a control group tested in a
University of Health and Sciences, Bethesda MD., (research
study conducted by Anders and Broke). This was after only
14 daily, 90 minute treatments. It suggests promising results
will be found in the future for peripheral nerve damage and
possible spinal cord damage.
OTHER INJURIES: To increase the range of motion (ROM), to
increase muscle strength, to decrease pain and inflammation
and to accelerate overall healing time for a variety of injuries.
Chiropractors and physical therapists use the cold laser for
whiplash-strain-sprain, chronic frozen shoulder, long standing
TMJ problems, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, and
other conditions such as sinusitis, etc.
