Cold laser therapy is a form of phototherapy or light therapy. The cold laser device produces a beam of light, which is applied over the injured area to stimulate healing. There is no pain with the treatment. When laser light is absorbed by a living tissue, it triggers biological reactions in the cells. Chemical substances are produced, released and carried by the blood and lymphatic flow to other parts of the system. In this way the effects of cold laser light may not be only local, but can also achieve wide systematic physiological responses: http://www.apollopt.com/
- Reduction in pain by causing production of natural pain killers, endorphins.
- Reduction in inflammation by suppressing inflammatory enzymes that creates swelling, redness, pain, and heat.
- Enhanced lymphatic drainage, which increases circulation and speeds healing.
- Release of tight muscles that create chronic pain, joint problems and decreased mobility.
- Faster bone repair by stimulating fibroblastic and osteoblastic proliferation.
