The Cold Laser Process
Usually the size of a flashlight, cold lasers are handheld devices used by our chiropractors in order to provide pain management. For cold laser therapy, we place the laser directly over the injured area for 30 seconds up to several minutes, depending on the size of the treated area as well as the dose provided by the cold laser unit. During this low-level cold laser treatment process, the non-thermal photons of light from the laser pass through the layers of the skin, including the dermis, epidermis, and the tissue fat that is under the skin. This light also has the ability to penetrate two to five centimeters below the skin. Once it passes through the skin and reaches the targeted area during the cold laser therapy, the light is absorbed and interacts with the light-sensitive elements found in the cell.
When the cells absorb this cold laser light energy, it initiates a process in the cell that results in rehabilitating damaged or injured tissue. It also includes a reduction in pain, inflammation, and even healing time by increasing the intracellular metabolism.
