With cold laser therapy, it is possible to help relieve pain in the back, neck, knee and more areas of the body. This treatment involves the use of a low-level medical laser that reaches through the epidermis (skin) to other tissue. This laser can still reach around 2 to 5 centimeters below the skin. Benefits of this treatment include:

  • Promoting a faster healing process for injuries
  • Reducing pain and swelling
  • Helping limit spasms in the specific area of the injury
  • Helping increase overall functionality
  • Customized treatment

Treatment Process

While some people may believe that a medical laser is a large device, the device for cold laser therapy is about the size of a flashlight. During the treatment, we will hold it over the specific spot for around 30 seconds to a few minutes. The amount of time will depend on the patient’s condition and the size of the area we need to treat.

With cold laser therapy, we can treat chiropractic injuries and pain in the:

  • Knee
  • Back
  • Wrists and arms
  • Neck
  • Tendons
  • Back

The treatment process will involve an initial appointment where we will review the patient’s medical history, current condition and symptoms. We will examine the patient to identify the source of the pain instead of merely treating the symptoms. While store-bought painkillers can help to provide temporary relief, it will not provide lasting recovery that our treatment can help promote.

This procedure will not cause pain. However, not all patients may be candidates for cold laser therapy. With that in mind, we will determine which treatment is the most effective option for the patient.
