Cold Laser Therapy

Cold Laser Therapy (aka Low Level Laser Therapy) offers patients a painless option for recovering from injuries sooner by reducing pain, without the use of drugs or invasive surgeries. This is commonly used in athletes  as well as the average individual looking to return to pain-free activities more quickly.  The laser light stimulates the cells in your soft tissues to heal themselves; without any irritation to the skin or any discomfort to the patient. 

How it Works?

Laser therapy is a  photochemical process using red and near infrared light.  It is photochemical, rather than thermal, and therefore does not feel warm  to the touch.  Low level laser therapy decreases oxidative stress and promotes ATP production which increases cell metabolism, reduces inflammation and inhibits pain fibers to decrease overall pain.  It is commonly used in the chiropractic office to:

  • Reduce swelling/inflammation in muscles, soft tissues, tendons and ligaments

  • Reduce muscle tension and nagging 

  • Strengthen bones

  • Reduce pain intensity

  • Reduces recurrence of acute neck and low back pain

  • Enhance and strengthen your natural immunity; providing ideal environment in the area for healing to occur naturally.

Conditions that can benefit from cold laser therapy (LLLT):

  • Acute muscle sprains & strains

  • Post-surgical pain

  • Whiplash injuries

  • Muscular back pain

  • Cervical or lumbar radiculopathy

  • Tendinitis

  • Chronic conditions of the joints (I.e.  osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, frozen shoulder, neck and back pain, epicondylitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinopathy, fibromyalgia, plantar fasciitis, post tibial fracture surgery, chronic regional pain syndrome

  • Neuropathic pain conditions (I.e. post herpetic neuralgia, trigeminal neuralgia, and diabetic neuropathy



Who should not have cold laser therapy:

LLLT is a very safe and painless therapeutic technique.  LLLT should not be used over active cancerous lesions unless recommended by an oncologist for relief of pain in late stage cancer.  Other regions to be avoided include over the developing fetus in pregnant females or directly over the eyes.
