What is Cold Laser Therapy ?

February 28, 2022

Cold Laser Therapy uses red light energy to repair tissue, reduce inflammation and significantly  reduce pain. The process of which the red light energy is used is known as photobiomodulation. Photobiomodulation is the process by which light energy enters the mitochondria of the cell in order to promote a more effective healing process. In turn, the activity of the lymphatic system increases which increases circulation and reduces pain and inflammation through the musculoskeletal system.
