Cold laser therapy works primarily via its effect on our mitochondria, where it increases ATP production. Increased ATP leads to increased energy for the cell, to aid nutrition and eliminate waste products. Cold laser therapy also stimulates collagen formation, leading to replacement of damaged tissues and repar of tissue injury. Cold laser therapy also starts a cascade of beneficial intracellular effects in the body including repair of the lymphatic system, increase in blood vessel formation, and increase in circulating levels of serotonin and endorphins in the blood. This cascade can lead to pain relief, improved tissue repair and reduced inflammation.
