Cold Laser Therapy

Are you looking for cold laser therapy in Durham?

In recent years, many medical and alternative health clinics have begun including light therapies in their traditional treatment methods. One of the most popular light therapies being used is cold laser therapy or low-level laser therapy.

When tissues are damaged, cells begin to die, and scar tissue formation often occurs. Both of these consequences can slow or even limit the healing process. Modern-day cold laser units have been specifically engineered to produce the essential wavelengths of light necessary to stimulate damaged cells, break up scar tissue, and promote the healing process.

How does cold laser therapy work?

Cold laser units come in various sizes and shapes, often resembling handheld flashlights. The treatment time required usually depends on two factors: the condition being treated and the size of the affected area. One major advantage of cold laser therapy units is their ability to penetrate deep into tissues and joints while also being effective for conditions closer to the skin surface. People undergoing cold laser therapy report feeling little to no sensation during the treatment process. Regardless of how deep the light waves penetrate, the energy is eventually absorbed by the damaged cells, providing them with the necessary boost to initiate the healing process. An apt analogy to understand the effects of cold laser therapy is how plants utilize sunlight to stimulate growth and healing. As these cells are repaired, the body experiences a decrease in pain, reduced swelling, and accelerated healing time.
