How does Cold Laser Therapy work?
Healing is essentially a cellular process. Cold Laser Therapy stimulates the cell activation process, which initiates a chain of reactions, from the cell membrane to the cytoplasm, to the nucleus and DNS. This is called cellular amplification, whose demonstration earned the Nobel Prize in 1994.
Unlike high power lasers that use heat to cut or burn tissue, low energy cold lasers boost biochemical reactions in the targeted tissue. Visible light is directed to a specific area, the light energy passes through the skin, and enters cell membranes by special light receivers. This increases the cells energy which results in changed cell membrane permeability. Several biological processes are then affected, such as ATP stimulation, that then initiates an increase in cell regeneration and protection, and decreases cell death.
The results for physical injuries and disorders include a reduction in swelling, an increase in tissue healing, reduction in pain, increased mobility, and maximum recovery.
- Relieves acute and chronic pain
- Increases the speed, quality and tensile strength of tissue repair
- Increases blood supply
- Stimulates the immune system
- Stimulates nerve function
- Develops collagen and muscle tissue
- Helps generate new and healthy cells and tissue
- Promotes faster wound healing and clot formation
- Reduces inflammation

Treatments take just a couple of minutes and may be performed through clothing. There is often no sensation during treatment, some patients report mild tingling. The number of treatments depends on your condition and your body’s ability to heal. You may be relieved in as little as one treatment. Typically, the longer you’ve had your condition and the more severe it is, the longer treatment will take. That’s why it is always best to take care of the source of your pain right away. One thing you can be assured, research and clinic practice proves that Dr. Winchell’s treatments will relieve your pain and help you heal quicker than the alternatives, with long-term results.
