There are several ways that cold laser therapy helps the brain. The laser increases the neurotransmitters produced by the brain, reduces swelling, speeds the rate of circulation of the blood in the brain, reduces inflammation, and may change or balance certain hormones. Endorphins are increased by laser therapy and these endorphins help reduce cravings for several addictive substances. Addictions often have several neurotransmitters that are out of balance. These include serotonin and dopamine.
Can you describe how the laser is used in treatment?
The cold laser therapy uses a focused laser beam which is narrowed through an attachment onto the machine. This beam is narrowed to the size of a very small pinpoint. The frequency of cold grade laser beam measures 780 to 950 nanometers for the invisible infrared laser used in laser equipment. There are other types of laser beams that may cut through skin and are used for surgical procedures. A stronger concentration laser beam travels deeper into the body.
