To reduce pain
Cold laser therapy helps reduce pain by supporting one’s ability to heal faster. This is accomplished by focusing on things like reducing any inflammation present and correcting any nerve dysfunction.
To reduce inflammation
Inflammation is often the body’s natural response to injury, which can lead to patients experiencing various levels of discomfort and/or pain. Cold laser therapy helps reduce inflammation, allowing for less pain and more mobility.
To stimulate nerve function

To improve vascular activity

To decrease scar tissue
The development of fibrous tissue is reduced when cold laser therapy is utilized on scars, no matter how they are obtained, e.g, cuts, scratches, burns, etc.
To increase metabolic activity
When cold laser therapy is utilized, it delivers more oxygen to the area being treated, which in turn increases metabolic activity that leads to faster healing time.
