Cold Laser Therapy (Low-Level Laser Therapy, LLLT):
Cold laser therapy, often referred to as low-level laser therapy (LLLT), involves the use of low-intensity laser light to stimulate cellular function and promote tissue healing. LLLT operates at low power levels and does not produce a significant thermal effect. Instead, it is believed to influence cellular processes at the molecular level, including enhancing mitochondrial activity, reducing inflammation, and promoting tissue repair. Cold laser therapy is often used to address a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, including soft tissue injuries, joint pain, arthritis, and neuropathic pain. It is also utilized for wound healing and tissue regeneration.
· Power Levels: Cold laser therapy operates at low power levels,
· Thermal Effect: Cold laser therapy does not produce a significant thermal effect,
· Mechanism of Action: Cold laser therapy primarily influences cellular processes at the molecular level,
· It's important to note that the selection of laser therapy modality should be based on a thorough assessment and diagnosis by a qualified healthcare professional, typically a chiropractor, physical therapist, or other healthcare provider.
