Cold laser therapy is a relatively new technology when compared to many alternative therapies like Chiropractic, Acupuncture and Physical Therapy. Many alternative medicine practices are evolving to include light therapy. In general, cold lasers can be used in 2 distinct ways:
Cold Laser therapy offers a non-invasive option to acupuncture and surgery. It also provides a treatment plan that eliminates the complications a prescription drug program may cause.
The goal of laser therapy is to deliver light energy units from infrared laser light, called photons, to damaged cells. Photons absorbed by the cells through laser therapy stimulate the mitochondria to accelerate production of Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP) or cell energy. This biochemical increase in cell energy is used to transform live cells from a state of illness to a state of health.
