Cold Laser Therapy Toronto
What is Cold Laser Therapy and what are the benefits?
Laser light therapy involves directing infrared laser light into the tissue surrounding an injury. The light energy absorbed by the tissue stimulates the body’s natural cellular pathways to reduce pain and inflammation. Lazer therapy can reduce scar tissue and improve circulation and lymph flow and re-energize the healing process.
What is involved in Cold Laser Therapy?
Application of the laser light is by a trained technician, under the supervision of a health care professional. The light can penetrate up to 3 inches deep into the tissue to stimulate heat. The treatment will typically take between 3 and 15 minutes and is painless. Between 3 to 20 treatments maybe required, depending on the injury and rate of healing.
How does Cold Laser Therapy work and why is it effective?
Laser light supplies energy to the body in the form of photons or light. Every cell contains a receptor called a “chromophore” which absorbs the energy from the laser light and converts it into metabolic energy (which kick-starts the healing process). The laser energy is absorbed through the skin and causes tissue changes, stimulates tissue repair and creates an analgesic anti-inflammatory effect.
