Low-level laser therapy (LLLT), or soft laser are other names for cold laser therapy. This treatment is believed to have been developed by Endre Mester in Hungary. He noticed that the mice treated with lasers were healthier than the ones in the control group. The idea of light-assisted healing was born.
More than 30 years ago, coherent light beams were developed. They have been used to treat many conditions, mainly in Canada and Europe. To avoid the heat, the beams can be administered in a single beam, or multiple beams at once.
There were not yet any studies to prove that these devices could provide significant benefits. This led to initial attitudes of skepticalness towards the treatment. Further research was required to provide more convincing proof. You can find more details on cold laser physical therapy through www.sheldonwellness.com/services/cold-laser-therapy/.
This non-invasive treatment for injuries sprains strains and pains in joints, appendages, and soft tissue is now being accepted by many bodies.
These light devices can be used to treat two types of areas: one that targets a specific area and one that covers an entire area. You can choose the treatment that will produce the desired outcome. The first method is used if a treatment similar to traditional acupuncture is needed, in which trigger points are targeted.
The second is used to treat damaged tissue in a larger area. It is intended to find areas that are more severely damaged than others and stimulate healing. The second type of treatment is faster because it covers a larger area.
The light-mediated treatment has two main effects. It reduces pain and inflammation and promotes the healing of cells to repair damaged tissues.
