Cold laser therapy is used primarily to treat pain but has other uses as well for example in the world of cosmetic treatment (by improving cell, perhaps collagen, growth). Cold laser therapy is safe, effective, and completely noninvasive. Also known as low level laser therapy, the cold laser has the ability to penetrate the skin to assist healing even in deep joint problems.
Cold laser increases metabolic activity, has anti-inflammatory action, increases vascular activity, reduces fibrous tissue formation, and stimulates nerve function. I treat muscle and joint pain, arthritis stiffness and pain, carpal tunnel and other hand or wrist pain, neck and lower back pain, and more. Treatment does not take very long (usually appointments are no longer than 30 minutes) and several treatments a week are needed for healing.
