Common Conditions where laser therapy is effective: Pain, inflammation, congestion, muscle and other soft tissue dysfunction. For more information see below.
The truth is that laser therapy is commonly used for literally dozens of diseases and conditions. So how does laser actually work? The laser that we use is known as a cold laser or a low level laser. It is based in quantum physics. This means that it utilizes particles and waves that are smaller than an atom. In good health there is an optimum rate or speed of the electrons as they revolve around the nucleus of the atom. When a person is sick or injured the electrons revolve around the nucleus of the atom at a different rate. When the laser is applied to the sick or injured area, the electrons are returned to their normal or healthy flow rate. This causes the sick or injured cell to heal because cells are made of molecules and molecules are made of atoms. Cold lasers are very safe with almost no chance of injury. The only place that we do not lase with the cold laser is in the eye. The cold laser should not be confused with the hot or burning laser as they are totally different.
