Cold laser therapy is low-intensity laser therapy, or laser therapy that uses low levels

of light to stimulate healing. Unlike surgical or aesthetic lasers, it does not cause your

tissues to heat up. Cold laser therapy is also sometimes called low-level laser therapy (LLLT), therapeutic laser, biostimulation, or photobiomodulation.

Low-level light is applied directly to the problem area. The tissue then absorbs the light. In a basic sense, this leads to a biological or chemical reaction to red and near infrared light. Damaged cells have a physiological reaction that helps promote their regeneration.

Research shows that the effect of Laser therapy is one of anti-inflammation and muscle relaxation effect. It also increase circulation and improves healing rate of the soft tissue making it ideal to use in sport injuries, muscles spasms, trigger points and any other musculoskeletal areas of increased inflammation .

Differing wavelengths and outputs are used, depending on the purpose of the treatment. There are no know side effects to this type of treatment.
