Cold Laser Therapy

Cold Laser Therapy is a treatment whereby a cold laser is utilized to treat chronic and acute pain. Cold laser therapy is used for persons suffering from back and neck pain, musculoskeletal pain, joint pain associated with arthritis, fibromyalgia, tendonitis, bursitis, neuropathy, achilles tendon pain, migraine headaces, sprains and strains, carpal tunnel and other associated pains. Cold laser therapy also treats conditions such as TMJ, reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) and other inflammatory and scarring conditions.

Cold laser therapy is non-thermal and noninvasive. A combination of cold laser and electric stimulation, cold laser therapy is one of the most effective healing therapies in the medical community today. Completed in ten to twelve sessions, cold laser therapy is not only significant in reducing treatment times, it is cost effective as well.

The Healing Nature of Light: First developed over 30 years ago, phototherapy uses a specific type of light to penetrate the skin's surface and underlying tissues to stimulate the body's natural repair processes. The result is faster healing and reduced pain, swelling and inflammation.

When cells are exposed to photon energy, cellular charges are induced to change the cell homeostasis. This entails a cascade of reactions influencing a number of components of the respiratory chain. (i.e. cytochromes and cytochrome oxidase) which are the primary photo acceptors or chromophores, resulting in absorption of therapeutic wavelengths. This causes short term activation of the respiratory chain, leading to changes in redox status and in turn the activation of enhanced synthesis of ATP. The photons also affect hydrogen ion levels in the cell, in combination with increased ATP, affects the cell permeability and flow of sodium, potassium, and calcium. These changes are necessary to control the proliferative activity of the cell.

Some of the unique healing effects of ACNC Phototherapy include:

Increased cell metabolism
Improved localized blood circulation
Development of collagen and muscle tissue
Relief from acute and chronic pain
Reduced localized inflammation and edema
Stimulation for wound healing and tissue repair
Stimulation of the immune system
Stimulation of nerve function

Research demonstrates that phototherapy can be used to effectively treat many conditions. Simulating the body’s natural repair processes using the healing nature of light has been proven particularly effective for certain conditions including:

Arthritis/rheumatism
Tendonitis, tennis and golfer's elbow
Repetitive Stress Injuries (i.e. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome)
Neck and Lower back pain
Soft Tissue Injuries, Strains and Sprains
Migraine headaches
