Cold laser therapy is also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT), low-power laser therapy (LPLT), soft laser biostimulation and photobiomodulation. It can deliver non-thermal photons of light to the body to help heal injured cells. Generally, surgical lasers used to destroy tumors tend to heat the tissue. Cold laser therapy is called “cold” because the low levels of light aren’t enough to heat your body’s tissue.
Nowadays, cold laser therapy is regarded as one of the most popular, natural and non-invasive treatment without side effect. Cold laser therapy is very safe and usually used as a complementary or alternative therapy to increase the efficiency of traditional physiotherapy and conventional treatments.
