Maintaining a healthy body starts with identifying the appropriate solutions to accomplish your goals. When you want to improve your body's function from a cellular level, cold laser therapy offers a realistic solution to assist with your goals.
What is Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold laser therapy refers to a type of low light laser therapy that specifically assists with the healing process. As a low light laser, it does not generate the same heat levels.
When you want to address physical discomfort or an injury, the therapy encourages healing through a gentle light and mild warmth. It is sometimes called infrared heat and it allows your body to absorb the light rather than burn from the laser. Essentially, a low level laser initiates microcirculation and causes your body to heal. It creates healthier cell function and encourages tissue regeneration so that you feel less pain over time.
As a general rule, low level laser therapy does not have safety risks or health concerns associated with the light or laser. Since it does not heat up like other lasers, it does not cause burning or discomfort on the skin. Instead, it provides a gentle warm that helps the body heal and improves the function of the body at a cellular level.
The therapy is safe and does not have any negative side effects. It is a gentle and non-invasive way to address certain types of pain and injuries. By reducing the amount of pain through a gentle use of light and mild warm, the laser helps the body work in an appropriate way so that an individual heals and recovers from mild injuries, pulled muscles and similar concerns quickly.
Healing is a natural process and your body recovers from injuries over time, but using a cold laser encourages your body to speed up the process. It causes a reaction in your body so that the injury heals.
