Researchers have discovered that certain low-level light frequencies can have positive effects on the body. The benefits can range from reducing inflammation to pain management to scar tissue reduction.

Also, these "cold" lasers rely on a narrow frequency that is not only safe for the human body but can also be highly therapeutic. A few of the beneficial applications of cold laser therapy include:

Moms are familiar with the concept of an ultrasound. Instead of using it to monitor the progress of a fetus, we use it to treat a variety of soft tissue injuries. However, the basic concept is the same. Using a rounded headed probe, the ultrasound uses high-frequency inaudible sound waves that produce a warm feeling below the surface of your skin. These high-frequency sound waves are directed to soft tissues and joints. The rise in temperature increases blood flow to the region, relaxes muscle spasms, increases metabolism, and promotes your body’s healing response. Think of ultrasound as a form of deep tissue micro-massage.
