Cold laser therapy is an application of red and near infrared light over an injured area to improve soft tissue healing and relieve both chronic and acute pain. Non heat producing or "cold" laser light energy directs light energy to the body's cells without injuring them. Cold laser light dramatically boosts the body's natural healing response.
The Kinesio Taping Method is felt to cause physiological effects on several body systems. The systems affected by the tape are thought to include the circulatory, lymphatic, neural, muscular, and fascial systems, as well as the joints. Kinesio Taping is currently being used by therapists to change muscle tone, move lymphatic fluids, correct movement patterns, and improve posture. The Kinesio Taping Method is a unique method of applying Kinesio Tex Tape in a specific manner to create change in the aforementioned systems. Benefits of using the tape are that it is more economical over time than other modalities, it is easy to learn to apply, there are less types of tape, and it may be used over a longer period of time.
