Cold Laser

Low Level Laser or Cold Laser Therapy

What is Cold Laser Therapy?
Low-level-laser therapy harnesses and magnifies energy from the invisible spectrum of light. The therapeutic laser gives these photons of light the ability to reach tissues up to 2 inches below the skin's surface. This process delivers energy and therapeutic light into damaged cells, so the process of repair and healing are greatly accelerated.

The laser in this office is a Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) device. LLLT has been scientifically proven to reduce pain, reduce inflammation, reduce swelling, and accelerate the healing process while strengthening damaged tissue.

Is it Safe?
Is it safe? Yes! Low-level-laser therapy has been in use for over 20 years around the world. Hundreds of clinical studies and scientific papers have documented the effectiveness and safety of this therapy. The FDA has cleared this laser device for use in the United States.

What conditions are normally treated?
There is a wide range of conditions that may be successfully treated:
Back Pain TMJ Fibromyalgia Arthritis Osteo and Rheumatoid
Neck Pain Tendinitis Tennis Elbow Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Muscle Pain Sinusitis Plantar Fascitis Post Operative Healing
Contusions Bursitis Wound Healing Repetitive Stress Syndrome

How long does a treatment take?
Laser treatment may last as little as 5 minutes, or as long as 20 minutes. The total number of treatments is generally 8-15 depending upon many factors which will be evaluated by your physician. It is important to remember that an immediate relief of pain does not mean the condition is fully healed. So, if a course of therapy is suggested, completing all of the treatments will improve your chances of long term success.

When will I feel results?
The actual effect of laser therapy begins at the time of treatment, but generally only becomes noticeable several hours after the treatment. Some patients will feel relief of pain and experience an increased range of motion right away. If the condition being treated is chronic and severe, it may take several treatment sessions to produce a significant noticeable result.

Are the results long lasting?
Laser therapy is about producing a healing effect in the cells and structures of the body. Unlike other therapies which mask or cover up the condition, laser light is actually influencing your body to speed up and strengthen the healing process. The effect of laser therapy is not just temporary relief, it is cumulative over time, so the more treatments you have, the stronger and more permanent the effect. Because laser light interacts with the cells and a natural healing process is generated, the results are quite long lasting. In many cases, the problem may be permanently resolved.

What does Cold Laser Therapy feel like?
Most people feel nothing at all during the treatment session. Some patients will feel slight tingling sensation brought on by the increased blood flow to the area being treated. Since the laser produces no heat, no burning sensation or warmth from the device can be felt. Low Level Lasers are sometimes referred to as Cold Lasers or Soft Lasers.

Review By Our Satisfied Patient

  • "Chiropractic care throughout my pregnancy was the best choice I ever made! I had a quick and easy delivery and feel so much better this time than with my first child. My one-week old was adjusted by Dr. Walsh and I noticed a difference in nursing him and his overall state of being that very afternoon. I recommend Dr. Walsh to every pregnant person I know! It really does make a difference."
