At Advanced Physical Medicine & Rehab of Miami, Cold Laser Therapy is one of the great treatments that we use to alleviate pain and stimulate healing in our patients. Many people find that they experience immediate results after a short laser therapy session.
How It Works
At Advanced Physical Medicine & Rehab of Miami, we use infrared lasers with controlled and adjustable power. With cold laser therapy, photons of laser energy penetrate deeply into tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. As a result of exposure to cold laser therapy, the cells of tendons, ligaments, and muscles repair themselves faster. As inflammation is reduced, the pain subsides very quickly.
When the laser penetrates the tissue, this causes a chain of events that lead to adenosine triphosphate production, which the cells use for energy. This photochemical reaction results in an increase in the cellular metabolism rate, which expedites cell repair and the stimulation of several systems: the immune, lymphatic, and vascular.
This stimulation of the cells enhances healing, improves nerve function, increases vascular activity, reduces pain, and reduces inflammation. The entire process is relatively quick, taking on average 10 minutes per session.
