Low level light therapy (LLLT) or “cold laser” therapy is a pain free way to treat whiplash injuries. Cold lasers deliver light energy at specific wavelengths and frequencies. This helps to relieve pain and inflammation as well as reduce the healing time of sprains and strains.
Over 4,000 different studies that show the benefits of LLLT. Laser therapy for whiplash injuries is effective and pain free. The light energy absorbed by the cells stimulates the mitochondria (the “engine” of a cell) to increase production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP. ATP is what all of our cells use for energy. By increasing the amount of fuel available, the function of any cell improves, speeding up the healing process for injured or damaged tissue.
Whiplash Associated Disorders (WAD) describes the many types of tissue injured in whiplash injuries. One of the many benefits of LLLT for whiplash injuries is it’s versatility. Cold lasers can be used to treat ligament, tendon, disc, and muscle injuries. If you’ve been in an auto accident, schedule a FREE consultation with our preferred provider.
