Injury from sport, work or gardening can leave a constant dull ache after the sharp pain has worn off. The natural tissue repair process is to blame.
The damaged tissue cells are replaced with a dense scar tissue. As this repair tissue develops and if left untreated, the fibrotic nodules become harder, causing more damage by constricting the blood and lymphatic vessels.
For the injured and trapped nerves and their receptors, the problem is even greater. The brain expects to receive constant and uninterrupted signals from the body.
Reconnecting the Brain to the Body
Long-term, this interference of communication between the brain and injured nerves leads to deterioration. Researchers discovered that patients with chronic back pain had 5-11% wasting of their brain’s gray matter – that is the equivalent of 10-20 years of natural brain ageing.
Targeting Cold Laser therapy on scar tissue, softens fibrotic nodules. This restores normal local circulation, allowing nerves to regenerate for a more complete recovery.
How Cold Laser works
When Cold Laser (also known as Low Level Laser Therapy) is placed over injured or sick cells, the light energy is absorbed. This stimulates the damaged cells to increase their energy production, which is used to transform the damaged cells into healthy active cells.
Many people experience relief after only 3-5 treatments and depending on the severity of the injury, tissue repair can take up to 12-15 visits.
Is it safe?
Yes, Cold Laser was discovered in 1967 and has been used for over 40 years with no documented serious adverse effects.
There are over 6,000 studies listed on PubMed which includes over 300 clinical trials, plus a new study is added almost every day.
