How Does Cold Laser Therapy Work?
A small laser light is administered to the targeted area and penetrates through the layers of skin to directly affect the cells around the area. Depending on the size of the area, the amount of time it takes for the doctor to apply this treatment could be a mere 5 minutes or it could be 20 minutes. The cells beneath the layers of skin use the energy from the laser light to begin to repair cells and tissue that are damaged and inflamed.
The overall affect of this light brings damaged cells in the affected area to heal more quickly, rapidly reducing the amount of time you are in pain as well as stuck on the sideline. It’s simple, effective and is one of many natural alternatives we have to help you on your road to recovery.
