Pulsed Cold Laser Therapy
We utilize a 25,000 - 50,000 mW FDA‐approved Class III laser in this practice specifically designed for human exposure. The physiological effect of photons depends upon their wavelength. By combining cold laser therapy (905 nm) with the infrared spectrum (875 nm) and the visible red spectrum (660 nm), we are able to achieve optimal tissue saturation and penetration as each wavelength is absorbed at different depths.
Cold laser therapy is thought to affect cellular physiology through the excitation of cells by light. Scientists have demonstrated that light can enhance communication between cells in addition to stimulating chromophores (light-sensitive enzymes) that play a role in several metabolic processes. The biggest impact appears to occur within the mitochondria where ATP production is increased. It is through this stimulatory effect that low-level laser treatment can act as a powerful analgesic by improving blood circulation, stimulating peripheral nerves and fighting inflammation in troublesome areas of the body.
