The Wonders of the Cold Laser
It’s a revolutionary, FDA-approved device that uses safe low-level infra-red light for the treatment of back pains and other pains have gained quite a following. Though the healing powers of light waves have long been ascertained, it was only in this millennium that certain cold laser devices were given the go signal for.
The wavelengths used are not really cold but their low frequencies suffice to treat painful or swelling tissues. They are unlike other laser devices that involve heat to destroy tumors or tissue. No heat is involved and no vibrations are felt with cold lasers. Best of all, a treatment will only take a few minutes. It is used for pain relief and pain reduction in sports injuries, chronic back pain, swelling and inflammation of joints and tendons. Not only chiropractors, but dermatologists, dentists and other health care providers have used cold lasers in their practices.
If it is at all a disadvantage, cold laser therapy necessitates several sessions before a complete recovery for long-standing pains is achieved, considering only a few minutes of exposure are carried out at a time.
