The science behind Cold Laser Therapy
Cold Laser Therapy or Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is also now known as PhotoBioModulation (PBM). This involves modulating the activity of the body’s cells through targeting them with controlled wavelengths of light.
Are there risks?
The cells are not heated up or damaged in any way and there are no side effects from treatment. The only risk to the body is if the laser beam is shone directly into the eyes, and this risk is eliminated by the wearing of specifically designed safety glasses (conforming to safety standards EN 207) which filter the laser energy.
What are the benefits?
Chemical processes in our cells work using tiny amounts of energy travelling through our membranes. Low levels of Infrared and red light stimulate these processes and have a therapeutic effect on our bodies in three ways:
- Faster healing
- Pain relief
- Immune system support
Short and long-term effects of treatment
The immediate effect of laser treatment with the probes is pain-relieving. Some patients feel a reduction in pain within minutes and others, within hours. Recent, acute injuries experience quicker pain relief compared to chronic, long-term conditions.
Longer-term effects are the stimulation of tissue healing, meaning that injuries are likely to resolve and heal within weeks rather than months.
Please note that every patient is an individual and will respond slightly differently to treatment, depending on their general state of health, age and medical history.
The client’s medical history and condition requiring treatment will be discussed with the Laser Therapist.
If the client is suitable for treatment and there are no contraindications then a Treatment Record Card is prepared detailing a personalised treatment record.
The number of sessions and frequency are dependent on the nature of the condition. Typically, two or three sessions are recommended over two or three days for the first week for acute pain, then one or two sessions a week for up to six weeks.
A 30 minute treatment session costs £30.
Please note that this treatment regime is a guideline. Clients may require fewer or more than six sessions depending on the nature of their injury.
