Cold Laser (Low Level Laser Therapy)

clt1For over 25 years, laser therapy has been successfully used around the globe. MR4 Cold Laser is used to treat various pain syndromes, pathologies, neurological conditions, wounds, fractures, and injuries. It is preferred by patients and doctors alike because it is a painless, non-invasive, drug-free treatment. Ideally, it can be used any time when a patient needs a drug-less procedure for pain control or when conventional therapies haven’t been effective. It can also be used when a patient and/or doctor desire to accelerate healing from injuries.

During laser therapy, low level laser supplies energy to the patient’s body through non-thermal photons of light. Light is transmitted via the layers of skin at all wavelengths in the visible range. Nevertheless, light waves found near infrared ranges go through the deepest of all light waves in the visible spectrum. Low level laser light waves optimize the immune responses of our blood when they penetrate deeply into the skin. This fetches in both immunostimulate and anti-inflammatory effects. As far as science is concerned, we all know that light transmitted to the blood using laser therapy has positive effects throughout the body; it supplies energy and vital oxygen to every cell.

According to most people, laser therapy is somewhat passive because it has no pulsating shock (forms of electronic stimulation), or heat used as with ultrasound. The touch of the laser’s probe head, as it comes in contact with the skin, is arguably the most noticeable sensation. Response of treatment depends with the severity of the condition. Treatment is likely to take longer if a condition is more severe or chronic. On average, the majority of conditions treated take between 4 and 5 or 10 and 15 treatments. The number of treatments depends with the treatment duration or severity of the condition. Although it may take between 4 and 5 sessions before a marked or dramatic change is perceived, you should notice a difference after 1 – 2 treatments.

Physiological Effects of Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)

The physiological effects of low level laser therapy are quite many, and they include:

  • Anti-edematous and anti-inflammatory effects
  • Improved blood circulation and vasodilation
  • Bio stimulation, such as increased cell metabolism and improved metabolism
  • Wound healing simulation
  • Analgesic effect

Benefits of LLLT

Given the techniques and procedures used in LLLT, this form of treatment has benefits to users such as:

  • Reduces inflammation
  • Stimulates nerve function
  • Increases the speed, quality, and tensile strength of tissue repair
  • Stimulates immune system
  • Relieves acute and chronic pains
  • Promotes faster healing of the wound and formation of clot
  • Develops collagen and muscle tissue
  • Increases blood supply
  • Helps in the generation of new and healthy tissue and cells

Published medical reports indicate that numerous acute and chronic conditions may be improved or gotten rid of through laser therapy. Some of these conditions include; arthritis, wound healing, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, swelling, fibromyalgia, sprain/strains, plantar fasciitis/heel spurs, trigger points, migraine headaches, and neuralgia. Others include neck pain/whiplash back pain, tennis elbow bursitis, nerve root pain, tendinosis/tendonitis, pots-operative pain, TMJ pain/dysfunction.

Low Level Laser Therapy or Cold Therapy uses specific light wavelengths to interact with tissue and is thought to help fasten the healing process. It has many advantages; thus, is recommended for patients, especially those with the above conditions.
