Cold Laser or Low Level Laser (LLT) is a safe, non-invasive, and effective method to treat a myriad of health conditions that include vertigo, infertility, internal and external scar tissue, and muscle and joint pain, to name a few.
Light therapy uses a specific wavelength from a laser to elicit localized tissue responses. Light therapy stimulates the inner membranes of the mitochondria of the cell (“battery” of a cell). This, in turn, excites the ATP of the cell (“powerhouse” of the cell). This activity promotes new cell and healthy tissue growth.
Cold laser increases blood flow and collagen in the affected regions and is used to rebuild nerve tissue damaged by surgery or trauma, necrotic muscle tissue and fascia, stimulates follicle growth, and helps rebuild connective tissue and dispel scar tissue.
