What is Cold Laser Treatment?

Cold Laser Treatment, also known as Low Level Light Therapy, has been found to be very effective for both chronic pain and acute injury.  The visible red light emits frequencies to the treated area, which promotes healing.  This happens because the frequencies increase the energy levels in the cells and the communication between the cells. The results are decreases in inflammation, increases in blood flow, and improvement in neurotransmitter release.

Cold laser treatments can be used right after a new injury to speed healing, restore joint function, and stop further injury.  Bodies that have endured chronic injury can benefit through pain reduction, improved muscle strength, and increased joint movement.

Some issues that Cold laser treatments are effective in treating:

  • Sports injuries
  • Sprains and strains
  • Chronic inflammation
  • Post surgery recovery
  • Knee pain
  • Hip pain
  • Sciatica
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Planter Fasciitis
  • Bursitis
  • Plus many more

Cold Laser Questions/Answers

  1. What is Low Level (Cold) Laser?
    The visible red laser light is emitted at the 635nm frequency which has been found to optimally affect the cells of the treated area.
  2. What does it do?
    The laser helps promote healing by increasing the energy levels in cells and communication between cells. This in turn decreases inflammation, increases blood flow, and helps improve neurotransmitter release.
  3. When do you use cold laser?
    Right after a new injury to speed healing, restore joint function, and stop further injury. Chronic injuries can benefit by reducing pain, improving muscle strength, and increase joint movement. Cold laser is also beneficial to help correct dysfunction in cellular communications resulting in disease.
  4. Can I feel the cold laser?
    No. While the Multi-Radiance Medical Laser emits 45 billion light particles per second, there is no heat or vibration generated by the 5m W laser.
  5. How is cold laser therapy done?
    The affected area and its nerve root are showered with the laser. This improves the healing effect of the therapy and the communication of the cells involved.
  6. How long is each treatment?
    Treatments usually last about 6 minutes depending on the area and condition being treated.
  7. Why did we choose cold laser for our clinic?
    Cold laser is the latest technology in providing the best care for our patients.
