Chiropractic Vacaville CA Are You Qualified For Cold Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy in Vacaville CA is a low-intensity laser therapy that promotes healing using low levels of light.

The reason why this therapy is called "cold" laser is because it only uses low levels of lights that won't cause heat to your body's tissue. There are other forms of laser therapy but this one has the lowest level of light.

Cold laser is also known for other names, such as:

  • Photobiomodulation
  • Soft laser biostimulation
  • Low-level laser therapy (LLLT)
  • Low-power laser therapy (LPLT)

How does cold laser therapy work in Vacaville CA?

This procedure applies different wavelengths and low-level light outputs directly to the targeted area. The light is then absorbed by the body tissue. Both the red and near-infrared light causes a reaction and will cause the damaged cells to respond with a physiological reaction that promotes healing.

Wavelengths that range between 600 and 700 nanometers can treat superficial tissue. Deeper penetrations will require wavelengths between 780 and 950 nm.

You will feel the laser device touching your skin but there's no need to worry because the entire procedure is noninvasive and painless. It doesn't emit any sound and you won't feel vibration or heat. The treatment only takes a few minutes, so you don't have to wait for long.
