What is Cold Laser Therapy?

Laser therapy is not a new practice in the medical field. Cold laser therapy, however, is different from traditional therapies. Despite its name, the laser used is not actually cold. Cold laser therapy, also called low-level laser therapy, is called "cold" because the light used in the therapy is not strong enough to produce heat. Unlike other laser therapies, the low-level laser is used to stimulate healing, whereas higher-powered lasers are used to destroy tumors and other invasive procedures. Our chiropractors provide cold laser therapy at United Chiropractic Health Center in Ontario.

How Does Cold Laser Therapy Work?

The device used by a chiropractor for cold laser therapy is hand-held. This allows the chiropractor to apply the therapy exactly where it is needed. The light of the laser causes a reaction in the damaged cells that promotes healing. This is a non-invasive therapy that can be done in-house at United Chiropractic Health Center. While it is not the same as a plant's use of photosynthesis, thinking of it in this way can be helpful to understand how light can affect your body.
