Frequently Asked Questions
While this page is dedicated to answering the common
questions people ask, there may be an additional question that you
have that is not answered here. Please email me at email@example.com so
that I can answer your question specifically.
What is Cold Laser and how does it help my condition?
laser, or low level laser, is one of the newest and most promising physical
therapy modalities on the market today. The cold laser delivers 7
different wavelengths from 470 - 940 simultaneously, while the enhancers
deliver a 660 nanometer wavelength and 808 nanometer, respectively.
frequency is matched to the frequency of light emitted when cell regeneration
occurs in our body. Introducing laser frequency into the specific malfunctioning
tissue results in an increase in mitochondrial production and cell regeneration. This
modality is used on professional athletes; in fact, Lance Armstrong's
chiropractor Dr. Jeff Spencer used the cold laser therapy on his body
during the Tour de France in each of Lance's victories.
How does laser light differ from "normal" light?
Light emitted from a laser diode is monochromatic (having only one wavelength),
parallel and coherent (having waves with similar direction, amplitude,
and phase). These qualities make laser light much more valuable for therapeutic
Are cold lasers safe?
Industry has been using
laser diodes for years in such applications as bar code check outs, CD
players, laser printers and pointers. The FDA has listed bio-stimulation
lasers as non-significant risk (NSR) devices.
Have cold lasers been scientifically studied and proven?
Low level lasers have been used world-wide for nearly 30 years. Over
2000 studies have shown that low level lasers:
(1) REDUCE PAIN by
stimulating cells to produce their own endorphins, a natural pain killer, (2)
PROMOTE FASTER HEALING by stimulating cells to increase the
production of two major healing enzymes by as much as 75%, (3)
REDUCE INFLAMMATION by as much as 75%, (4) INCREASE
BONE REPAIR SPEED by stimulating fibroblastic and osteoblastic
proliferation, (5) RELAX MUSCLES and muscle spasms, (6)
DECREASE SWELLING by stimulating lymphatic drainage, (7)
ENHANCE THE IMMUNE SYSTEM by increasing the number of "killer" cells
by 400-900%, and most importantly, (8) RE-ENERGIZE CELL MEMBRANES to
allow transport of essential nutrients across cell walls (nutrients will
not cross an injured or sick cell wall, thus slowing healing) allowing
a healthy new cell to grow.I hope this helps to answer your questions, but if it isn't here, please
