What is cold laser therapy?
It is a sterile, painless, drug-free modality, non-invasive therapy that is used for a variety of conditions, including treating acute and chronic pain. During a laser treatment, the light will penetrate the skin and is absorbed by a particular receptor within the mitochondria. Receptor stimulation with light promotes energy production, biochemical reactions, protein and growth factor synthesis, cell growth and proliferation and enhanced blood and oxygen flow. Raised blood flow decreases inflammation that can cause pain. The cold laser therapy offers great benefits over pharmaceuticals and the related side effects. Cold laser therapy is also known by the name photobiomodulation and phototherapy which uses light energy from light-emitting diode or lasers to elicit biological or cellular responses in the body.
Cold laser therapy has already proved its effectiveness in treating chronic back pain, tendon strains, cold sores, burns, and strokes; it is used commonly in many clinics. Besides, the growing occurrence rate of cancer has also made cold laser therapy a novel treatment option in the field of clinical research.
The newest class 4 medical laser provides specific red and near-infrared wavelength lasers to induce photochemical reactions and therapeutic effects. Physiological effects include increasing circulation, reducing inflammation, reducing pain, and enhancing tissue healing. High-intensity lasers, also called "photobiomodulation" (PBM), are being used by doctors, chiropractors, dentists, physiotherapists, pedicures, veterinarians, etc.
