What is Cold Laser or Low Light Therapy (The Scientific Stuff)
So What is Cold Laser Therapy and How is it Different?
Cold Laser Therapy or Low-Level Light Therapy (Photobiomodulation) was originally developed in the 1960’s for the Russian cosmonauts to fast track healing of soft tissue injuries sustained during mission take-off.
Cold Laser Therapy is SAFE, SCIENCE BACKED and TGA Approved for the purpose of muscular and skeletal conditions and pain management in general.
Cold Laser Therapy promotes pain relief by using a very specific type of light that works at the cellular level stimulating the body’s natural healing process. Adenosine TriPhosphate (ATP)is a very specific fuel made only by the cells and it is this that powers our entire bodies continuously, 24/7. This energy always keeps the body and its many systems running, however when we hurt ourselves through illness, accident or surgery, significantly more fuel is required, and this can and does strain the daily requirements of the system.
Cold Laser puts the fuel back into the tank of the over-loaded cells so they can continue to help the body recover.
Super Pulsed Cold Laser ensures the maximum dose of photons reaches the target area and unlike continuous light beams, tricks the body so it doesn’t adapt and stop the healing process as is often the case with medications, exercise and diets.
In simple terms, if you have cells and we are all made up of trillions of cells this pain free, non-invasive, cutting edge technology, can be applied successfully to a wide range of health conditions.
How Cold Laser Therapy assists with Pain Relief
By targeting areas of pain with Low Level Light Therapy pulsed light beams provide energy to restore Adenosine TriPhosphate (ATP) which in turn provides energy and oxygen to promote muscle contraction, communication between cells, repair of damaged cells and removal of waste products.
What is Adenosine TriPhosphate?
Adenosine TriPhosphate (ATP) is a naturally produced chemical compound within the body, ATP is commonly referred to as the “Energy Currency of Life”.
Adenosine TriPhosphate molecule
When the third Phosphate group breaks away from the molecule it releases energy and leaves a depleted Adenosine DiPhosphate (ADP) molecule behind.
Energy Released and Adenosine DiPhosphate Molecule
Cold Laser Therapy adds light to the Adenosine DiPhosphate cells giving them new energy to recreate Adenosine TriPhosphate molecules which can once again power the body into healing, rebuilding of cells and removal of waste products, supplying new energy to assist with pain relief and body rebuilding.
