Cold Laser Therapy is Hot

The Cold Laser was designed by a team of doctors and medical engineers in the 1960’s and has been used around the world since then to improve healing and reduce pain in patient care. Now approved by the FDA, this painless therapy is capable of penetrating two inches into the treated tissues, resulting in a photochemical reaction that produces an increase in the cellular metabolic rate. This increase speeds up cellular repair and stimulates the immune, lymphatic and vascular systems resulting in the reduction of pain, inflammation and swelling. A recent study at Baylor College of Medicine and General Motors Co. has documented an 82% success rate in pain reduction of Carpal Tunnel patients treated in a double blind study. The Cold Laser is also used for the treatment of joint injuries, tendonitis and tennis elbow, hip and leg pain, shoulder and neck pain, arthritis, TMJ syndrome and neuralgia. Many professional and college sports teams are now treating their athletes with Cold Laser Therapy.
