Cold Laser Therapy

While high power lasers use heat and destroy tissue, low energy lasers (or “cold lasers”) use focused light energy to heal the body on a cellular level.

Low-level laser therapy was approved by the FDA in 2002 as a safe and effective treatment for carpel tunnel syndrome. Since then, cold lasers have been widely used in the NFL, as well as on the USPS Tour De France Team, to provide pain relief and promote healing for a variety of injuries and medical complaints. Cold Laser Therapy is drug-free, painless, non-burning and non-toxic.

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is used to speed healing from trauma.

When the body sustains an injury, cells are damaged and fail to function normally. The Cold laser administers low-level light through the skin layers where it eventually is absorbed by the light-sensitive elements in the cell. Similar to photosynthesis where sunlight is absorbed by a plant and then converted into energy so that the plant can grow, the laser light is absorbed by the cells causing a biochemical change that helps restore normal cell activity. Because the intracellular metabolism is increased, patients experience accelerated healing, as well as a reduction in swelling, pain and inflammation.

Studies have shown that low-level lasers can treat a variety of pain syndromes, injuries, wounds, fractures, neurological conditions and pathologies up to 60 percent faster than traditional therapies. Cold Laser therapy can treat both acute and chronic conditions, including:

  • frozen shoulder
  • fractures
  • golf & sports injuries
  • post-operative wounds
  • muscle sprains and strains
  • scar tissue
  • autoimmune disorders and diseases
  • chronic or acute pain
  • tendonitis
  • wound healing
  • rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis
  • migraines
  • disc herniations
  • minor nerve damage
  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • heavy metal detoxification
