Understanding Cold Laser Therapy

What is Cold laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy, an innovative technology, offers a safe, non-invasive and non-addicting treatment to patients who suffer from a variety of acute and chronic conditions. Cold laser therapy is also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT), low-power laser therapy (LPLT), soft laser biostimulation and photobiomodulation.

It can utilize specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and accelerate the healing process of injured cells. Generally, surgical lasers used to destroy tumors tend to heat the tissue. Cold laser therapy is called “cold” because the non-thermal photons of light aren’t powerful enough to heat up your body’s tissue.

Nowadays, cold laser therapy is usually used as a complementary or alternative therapy to increase the efficiency of traditional physiotherapy and conventional treatments. It is regarded as the most popular therapy to stimulate cellular metabolism, improve blood circulation, diminish inflammation, relieve pain and accelerate tissue repair.

How Does Cold Laser Therapy Work?

Cold laser therapy employs the light with a wavelength in the red to near-infrared region of the spectrum. These wavelengths have the ability to penetrate the skin, soft tissue, and hard tissue.

The cold laser energy can reach the target areas easily. Then, the low-level light energy can be absorbed and interact with the light-sensitive elements in the cells. This process can be compared to photosynthesis in plants – sunlight is absorbed by the chlorophyll within plant cells, which is then converted to usable energy so that the plant can grow. Via this mechanism, cell metabolism and mitochondria function are restored. Mitochondria, where metabolism takes place, are “the cellular power factories” in our cells. They can convert food molecules and oxygen into energy (also called ATP) by a series of biochemical reactions. In other words, this mechanism can help human and animals revitalize cells, repair injured tissue and recover from health conditions.

What Are the Benefits of Cold Laser Therapy?

According to plenty of clinical trials, cold laser therapy can stimulate all types of cells and tissue including muscle, ligament, cartilage, nerves, etc. It can benefit both human and pets.

Some of the conditions that may typically be treated by cold laser therapy include:

  • Ligament sprains, muscle strains
  • Tendonitis, bursitis, arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, frozen shoulder
  • Neck pain, lower back pain, knee pain, sciatica
  • Tennis elbow, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Acne and acne scars, psoriasis, vitiligo, dermatitis and rashes
  • Wound healing, ulcerations, burns, edema
  • Chronic autoimmune diseases

In addition, acupuncturists often use cold laser therapy for clients who are uncomfortable with needles. The low-level laser beams can stimulate your acupoints without piercing your skin.

What Are the Advantages of Cold Laser Therapy?

As a non-invasive treatment, cold laser therapy does not require a surgical incision. It means that you don’t have to experience unbearable pain and prolonged recovery time

Cold laser therapy does not have side effects and complications when used properly. So, patients who are worried about the potential dangers of medications prefer to choose cold laser therapy.

Is Cold Laser Therapy Real for You?

Although cold laser therapy is quite safe and healthy, it is not recommended in some cases.

Cold laser therapy shouldn’t be used on carcinomas or cancerous lesions. It should also be avoided on the thyroid or eyes. With little research done in this area, cold laser therapy has not been proven to be safe for unborn children. So, it’s not suggested that pregnant women use this type of treatment.
