Cold Laser Therapy

cold laser therapy

Are you looking for cold laser therapy in Lexington?  In recent years, many medical and alternative health clinics have begun including light therapies into their traditional treatment methods.  One of the most popular light therapies being used is cold laser therapy or low level laser therapy.  When tissues are damaged, cells begin to die and scar tissue formation often begins.  Both of these consequences can slow or even limit the healing process.  Modern day cold laser units have been specifically engineered to produce the essential wavelengths of light necessary stimulate the damage cells, break up the formed scar tissue, and stimulate the healing process.

How does cold laser therapy work?

Cold laser units come in various sizes and shapes.  Often the units used are handheld and similar to the size of an average flashlight.  The treatment time required is usually dependent on two factors, the condition being treated and the size of the area affected.  A major advantage of cold laser therapy units is the ability to penetrate deep into tissues and joints while retaining the capability to also treat conditions closer to the skin surface.  People utilizing cold laser therapy as a non-invasive form of treatment report feeling little or no sensation during the treatment process.  Regardless of how deep the light waves penetrate, the energy is eventually absorbed by the damaged cell providing it with the boost to begin working.  Plants using the suns light to stimulate growth and healing is a good analogy to demonstrate the effects of cold laser therapy.   As these cells are repaired, the body is able to decrease the sensation of pain, reduce swelling, and accelerate the time required to heal.
