How Cold Laser Therapy Works
Deep tissue laser therapy applies infrared light to stimulate cells and aid in the healing process. This helps to reduce inflammation, increase healing times and alleviate pain. The laser is placed directly over the injured area for anywhere from 30 seconds to several minutes, dependent upon the severity of the injury. During this time the light that is emitted from the laser passes through the skins layers and reaches the target area.
When cells absorb the light energy, it initiates a series of events that eventually results in normalizing the damaged nerves or tissue as well as reduce the pain and inflammation. This accelerates the overall healing process.
