How Does Cold Laser Therapy Work?
The XLR8 Cold Laser is a small handheld device that our chiropractor uses on patients for purposes of modifying cellular functions and providing effective pain relief. The red laser beam is placed directly over the injured or affected area.
Different wavelengths of light and outputs of low-level light are used for this purpose. That’s when the device emits non-thermal light photons that penetrate the skin’s layers.
The process has been likened to photosynthesis in plants, and it helps promote cellular regeneration. It can be used on muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves for a variety of conditions like the following:
- Neck or back pain.
- Pain from fibromyalgia.
- Carpal tunnel syndrome.
- Knee and shoulder pain.
- Sprains and strains.
- And many other conditions and injuries.
