What Is Cold Laser Therapy, and How Does it Work?

The "cold" in "cold laser" refers to the relative frequency range of low-level laser therapy compared to the frequencies used by surgical lasers, which cut and cauterize tissues with pinpoint precision. By contrast, a cold laser doesn't damage or affect the skin at all; instead, it passes harmless and painlessly through the skin to direct its energy on the tissues underneath.

The wavelength of the cold laser has remarkable effects on the area of tissue being treated. For one thing, the laser energy causes the mitochondria in cells to produce more of a substance called adenosine triphosphate, or ATP. Since ATP fuels cellular repair and regeneration, the cells can greatly increase their work of rebuilding injured or ailing tissues. This makes cold laser therapy a powerful healing and rehabilitation tool. Cold laser therapy also has a circulation-boosting effect, enhancing both flood flow and fluid drainage at the treatment site. This aids in the reduction of edema (swelling), pain and inflammation. Not only can this benefit provide pain relief and pain management for a variety of conditions, but its inherent safety allows you to make use of it as frequently as needed, with no worries about drug interactions or other side effects.

A Multitude of Healing and Pain Relief Applications

Cold laser therapy has demonstrated an ability to support muscle repair, collagen and cartilage regeneration, bone formation and even nerve healing. This versatility, coupled with its warming and relaxing effect on muscles, means that it can prove effective for conditions such as:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Sports injuries
  • Back and neck pain
  • Tendonitis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Knee pain
  • Tennis elbow
  • Arthritis
  • Headaches and migraines

Our chiropractor may include cold laser therapy as part of an individual, multi-modal treatment plan designed to suit your specific needs. This technique complements such other natural, conservative measures as chiropractic adjustment and massage therapy. A typical cold laser session at Anew Medical and Rehabilitation takes just a few minutes (depending on the location and severity of the condition) and causes no discomfort whatsoever -- in fact, you will most likely enjoy the warming effect it produces.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
