Cold laser therapy also known as "soft laser therapy" is a medical treatment form, which uses low level lasers to stimulate the damaged tissues, thereby enhancing the progress of healing and providing relief from pain and inflammation. The cold laser treatment has a very good potential to ease chronic pain and inflammation due to its capability to penetrate the skin and treat soft tissue injuries.
The relief and healing provided by the cold laser is due to the several mechanisms, which the therapy induces. There is increased production of the serotonin in the brain and the stimulation of the neuro-endocrine system, which promotes the sense of overall well-being. In addition, the progress of tissue repair is enhanced and pain is alleviated. When the targeted body part is exposed to the cold laser, the cells are exposed to photon energy, which increases metabolism of the cells and promotes collagen growth and muscle cells. The blood circulation improves and thus the wounds heal faster. The cold laser treatment is highly beneficial for those, who suffer from acute or chronic pain.
