3 Reasons Why Cold Laser Therapy is An Effective Treatment For Back Pain
Cold Laser Therapy has clinically been proven to be an effective treatment for a broad range of conditions including muscoskeletal injuries, arthritis, soft tissue damage and sports injuries.
in the short term, the body produces and releases beta-endorphins to control the sensation of pain, plus, cortisol production is increased to combat the stress associated with the trauma or disease process.
Over the long term, ATP (adenosine triphosphate) production is increased resulting in improved cellular metabolism. DNA (deoxyribonucleiacid) the protein building block of tissue is substantially increased.
Neurotransmission is facilitated secondary to elevated levels of serotonin and acetylcholine. Mitochondrial activity is stimulated resulting in cell replication for replacement, regeneration and repair of abnormal cells, and other cellular level changes take place.
The process results in the elimination of symptoms, including pain and enhances the body’s immune system response, facilitating natural healing.
Phototherapy / Cold Laser Therapy:
Cold laser therapy is a medical treatment that uses low-level lasers. The technology utilizes super luminous and laser diodes to irradiate diseased or traumatized tissue with photons. These particles of energy are selectively absorbed by the cell membrane and intracellular molecules, resulting in the initiation of a cascade of complex physiological reactions. This leads to the restoration of normal cell structure and function.
- Cold laser therapy or phototherapy is considered safe. It is non-invasive, painless and drug-free. There have been no reported adverse results or side effects of BioFlex Laser Therapy throughout the company’s nearly 30 year history.
- Numerous clinical studies have demonstrated the benefits of using LLLT (Low Level Laser Therapy) / Cold Laser Therapy / Phototherapy, as it reduces pain caused by rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and improves microcirculation in the irradiated area.
