What is Cold Laser?

Lasre Therapy is the use of laser energy to create therapeutic effects. Research has shown that these effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling(1).

When laser light is absorbed by living tissue, it triggers biological reactions in the cells. Chemical substances are produced, released and carried by blood and lymphatic flow to other parts of the system. In this way the effects of cold laser light create broad systemic effects(2).

Pain treatment is the most common use of cold laser:

Reduction in pain by causing production of natural pain killer endorphins.

Reduction in inflammation by supressing inflammatory enzymes that create swelling, redness, pain and heat.

Enhanced lymphatic drainage, which increases circulation and reduces swelling.

Release of tight muscles that create chronic pain, joint problems and decreased mobility(3).

  • Acute and chronic pain

  • Ligament sprains

  • Muscle strain
