Low Level Laser Therapy, also known as Cold Laser Therapy, has been in use for over 40 years, but was finally approved by the FDA in 2002. Laser therapy has primarily been used to relieve pain, heal wounds and scar tissue, and regenerate nerves.
There are over 2000 published studies on the cold laser showing absolutely 0% negative side effects. What drug can show the same results?
Cells in the body produce a chemical known as ATP (adenosine tri-phosphate) to run the body and heal tissue. All of our body’s activities result from the use of ATP. Low Level Laser Therapy stimulates a structure within the cells called the mitochondria to produce slightly higher amounts of ATP. With more ATP at the cell level, tissues heal faster, and relief comes faster.
Four to twelve treatments may be needed for complete healing of an injury or relief of pain, but I have found major relief after just one session with the laser.
