How Cold Laser Therapy Works
by Alesha Wilson
Back pain, joint pain, tendonitis, fibromyalgia, migraine headaches, neuropathy, and neck pain are just some of the health conditions that could be treated by cold laser therapy. This is a type of treatment that is widely used to treat acute and chronic pain in any parts of your body.
Cold laser therapy follows a procedure where the levels of serotonin are gradually increased to help the body heal itself in a non invasive and non thermal way. This type of treatment actually derived from a light healing method called phototherapy that was developed 30 years ago. It uses a certain type of light to penetrate on the surface of the skin covering underlying tissues and stimulating your body's natural way of healing.
A cold laser therapy uses a low level laser light that compresses the wavelength from the red light spectrum to the cold part. Body cells are exposed to photon energy--increases the cells' metabolism to develop muscle tissues and collagen. It improves blood circulation and speeds up the repair of tissue. This process also stimulates the nervous and immune system of the body. Cold laser may also function as acupunctures stimulating acupoints of the body without the use of needles.
The most common cold laser treatment models are use Q1000 Laser, 660 Probe, 808 Probe, Q1000 Propack, and the Q10 Laser. These are simple to use, though it still requires training for effective results. You can even do it at home. These laser models are light to hold and point to an area of your body that needs attention.
Nothing beats an effective natural way of healing through the methods of cold laser therapy.
