We have been pioneers in the Cold Laser Universal Protocol Accelerated Healing, for the past few years. With our expert experience and combined LightForce Chiropractic care, we have witnessed countless health victories with adding Cold Laser to any other health approach.
HOW COLD LASER WORKS
When the body has an injury, the cells are damaged and fail to function within normal parameters. Energies from the Cold Laser penetrate deeply into the skin and work by restoring 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 without cutting or burning. Cold Laser or Low Level Laser Therapy is emerging as a premiere 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. By reducing inflammation as well as enhancing specific repair and healing processes, Low Level Laser Therapy has been proven to provide pain relief, reduce cell damage due to the injury and resulting loss of function. Low Level Laser Therapy enables the body to have a more rapid repair and stronger tissues once healed.
Cold Laser accelerates the cells’ healing response.
Physiologic effects include improved metabolism, circulation and tissue healing.
Laser therapy may be a useful adjunct for the following:
- chronic shoulder problems
- scar tissue
- chronic or acute pain
- disc herniations
- minor nerve damage
- carpal tunnel syndrome
- skin and collagen repair
- and countless other health challenges
Laser therapy is based on photochemical and photobiological effects of the cells and tissues. With laser light, cell functions are stimulated, especially the increase of a cell’s ATP (energy). This increase in ATP synthesis is associated with increased cell metabolism, increased collagen synthesis, stimulation of DNA formation, improved immune system function and increased new formation of capillaries. The laser also has been shown to increase neurotransmitters (serotonin), to increase and enhance tissue regeneration through increasing fibroblasts and keratinocytes. The laser can also increase antioxidants and accelerate bone and scar healing.
