Cold Laser Therapy in Tyler

Are you looking for cold laser therapy in Tyler? Laser stands for: Light Amplification of the Stimulation of Radiation (Light Energy). Cold laser (low intensity) differs from Hot Lasers (high intensity). Hot lasers are used in industry and have some uses in surgical treatment. In 1969, a Hungarian scientist named Endre Mester, presented his findings of using low level (cold) lasers in Medicine. He found that this beam of light energy had positive effects in reducing inflammation, relieving pain, and speeding up the healing process.

In recent years, many medical and alternative health clinics have begun including light therapies into their traditional treatment methods.  One of the most popular light therapies being used is cold laser therapy or low level laser therapy.  When tissues are damaged, cells begin to die and scar tissue formation often begins.  Both of these consequences can slow or even limit the healing process.  Modern day cold laser units have been specifically engineered to produce the essential wavelengths of light necessary stimulate the damage cells, break up the formed scar tissue, and stimulate the healing process.

Cold laser units come in various sizes and shapes.  Often the units used are handheld and similar to the size of an average flashlight.  The treatment time required is usually dependent on two factors, the condition being treated and the size of the area affected.  A major advantage of cold laser therapy units is the ability to penetrate deep into tissues and joints while retaining the capability to also treat conditions closer to the skin surface.  People utilizing cold laser therapy as a non-invasive form of treatment report feeling little or no sensation during the treatment process.  Regardless of how deep the light waves penetrate, the energy is eventually absorbed by the damaged cell providing it with the boost to begin working.  Plants using the suns light to stimulate growth and healing is a good analogy to demonstrate the effects of cold laser therapy.   As these cells are repaired, the body is able to decrease the sensation of pain, reduce swelling, and accelerate the time required to heal.


THE SCIENCE BEHIND COLD LASER THERAPY

Photons are present in all light energy. These photons are absorbed by the part of the body the laser is focused on, and this accounts for the positive effects of the laser treatment. The light energy produced by the laser is absorbed by the cells up to 3 inches deep. The absorption of this energy increases ATP (adenosine triphosphate) and results in the reduction of inflammation, swelling, and pain. Because it increases the formation of collagen, it speeds up the healing and repair of the tissue it is focused on.

There are over 2500 studies demonstrating the beneficial effects of cold laser therapy.
