Cold Laser Therapy

What is Cold Laser Therapy?

  • Cold laser therapy utilizes an impulse of light at a specific wavelength (usually 600 to 980nm) that penetrates deep into tissues increasing cellular metabolism, cellular repair, improving blood circulation, decreasing pain, and inflammation.

 How Does Cold Laser Therapy Work?

  • The cold laser transmits non-thermal photons of light through the skin layers (dermis, epidermis, and subcutaneous tissues) to the underlying structures, which stimulates an immune response.  This response has anti-inflammatory effects and helps to supply vital oxygen to areas that have been injured or undergone trauma.
  • This is a painless and noninvasive treatment, great for a variety of conditions including: Back PainNeck Pain/WhiplashTendonitis (Tennis Elbow)Sprains and StrainsMuscle SpasmsCarpal Tunnel SyndromeHerniated DiscsKnee PainTMJWound HealingBursitisPlantar FasciitisTrigger PointsNerve Pain/NeuralgiaSciatica, and Arthritis/Arthralgia.

What to Expect During Treatment?

  • The most noticeable sensation is the probe placed on the skin. There is no electronic stimulation, heat, or pulsating sensations.

 Benefits of Cold Laser Therapy:

  • Reduced pain
  • Improves circulation to injured areas
  • Increased healing time
  • Stimulation of new and healthy cells and tissues
  • Reduces inflammation and edema
  • Stimulates nerve function
