Cold Laser Therapy Q & A

What is cold laser therapy?

Cold laser therapy uses cutting-edge technology to boost your body's natural healing processes. Some medical-grade lasers resolve illnesses by using heat to destroy diseased tissue, but cold lasers don't heat your tissues. Instead, your body absorbs this low-level light. 

Once your body absorbs the cold laser energy, an internal reaction occurs. This reaction promotes cell regeneration and speeds up healing. Cold laser therapy is ideal for deep-tissue injuries and inflammation.

What are the health benefits of cold laser therapy?

Stratford Acupuncture & Nutritional Wellness Center uses cold laser therapy for many injuries and illnesses. Cold laser therapy can help with:

  • Muscle strains and sprains
  • Chronic pain
  • Athletic injuries
  • Muscle spasms
  • Autoimmune disease

Since laser therapy boosts cell turnover, it also has aesthetic properties. Cold laser therapy may also help with psoriasis and dermatitis.

What happens during a cold laser therapy session?

During each session, a member of the Stratford Acupuncture & Nutritional Wellness Center team uses a handheld laser device that is about the size of a flashlight. Your provider places the device over the treatment area for a few minutes. 

The laser passes through your skin's surface and into deep tissues. This process is painless and noninvasive and doesn't cause any vibration or noise.

Cold laser therapy carries few risks and seldom causes side effects, so after your treatment is complete, you can return to your normal activities right away. 

What results can I expect with cold laser therapy?

Cold laser therapy helps stimulate cell regeneration, but this process doesn't happen overnight. It may be several weeks before you notice full results.

Depending on your wellness goals, you may need several sessions. The Stratford Acupuncture & Nutritional Wellness Center team can develop a treatment schedule that meets your needs. 

No matter what your wellness goals are, Stratford Acupuncture & Nutritional Wellness Center offers cutting-edge solutions. Call the office today or request an appointment online.
