Cold Laser Therapy
Light has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries. Cold Laser or Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a form of concentrated light therapy. The acronym “Laser” stands for light amplification through the stimulated emission of radiation. The application of it has been used in the field of physical medicine for over 30 years. Here in the Kansas City area, we have utilized this therapy for 9 years. There are published papers on topics such as joint pain, trigger point activity, decreased circulation, wound healing and others.
The cold laser therapy works similar to sunlight hitting plants and causing them to grow with nutrients and water present. In our bodies when light hits our cells certain things happen as well. Increased ATP production which is the energy we burn, stimulation of collagen synthesis, the acceleration of the inflammatory process and thereby wound healing, decrease in pain, increased immune response in the area. So as you can see only positive things happen when we apply this light to our bodies and with no known side effects in 30 years of usage and research.
The cold laser treatments are painless, effective and quick. We have helped things with our laser treatments such as shingles, wound healing, burns, sprains and strains, plantar fasciitis, meniscus tears, bursitis, pain and many more. Call us today to see if we can help with your particular problem!
