Why Cold Laser Therapy instead of Electrical Stimulation or Ultrasound?

Alternative modalities may relieve pain but do nothing to promote deep healing of damaged tissue. Electrical stimulation is often uncomfortable. It lacks the consistent pain reduction of laser and does not provide the same stimulation of tissue healing. Ultrasound is not as effective at blocking pain as a laser. It can mildly stimulate healing, but studies show that it does this by weakening the tissue, whereas laser actually causes tissue to strengthen.
