COLD LASER THERAPY
Cold lasers are called such not because they are cold but because they do not burn through soft-tissue. This treatment is not invasive and may be used as an alternate to acupuncture treatment.
The cold laser emits light from LED electrodes and produces a therapeutic effect at the site of where the device is applied. The light energy produces improvement of blood circulation and this in turn will help to reduce inflammation over and then help with tissue healing. The treatment allows for good outcomes. Other benefits are that it is easy to apply, is non-toxic and non-invasive and does not produce a side effect of pain.
