What Is Cold Laser Therapy

Low Level Laser Therapy is a form of phototherapy or light therapy. This involves the application of low power light (red and near infrared light) to injuries or wounds to improve soft tissue healing and relieve both acute and chronic pain. It is also known as cold laser, soft laser or low intensity laser. Low level laser therapy aims to bio-stimulate. Because of the low power nature of low level laser therapy the effects are biochemical and not thermal and cannot cause heating and thereby damage to living tissue. The therapy is precise and accurate; and offers safe and effective treatment for a wide variety of conditions including:

  • Arthritis
  • Acupuncture Points Stimulation
  • Back Pain
  • Enhances Lymphatic Drainage
  • Releases Tight Muscles
  • Soft tissue injuries, including sprains and strains and tendonitis
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Chronic Pain
  • Nerve Regeneration
  • Neuropathy Musculoskeletal Pain
  • Myofascial Pain
  • Tendonitis
  • Sports Injuries
  • Wound Healing (Speeds Healing)
  • Pain relief as a result of increased endorphin release
  • Strengthening the immune system


How does it work?

Low-level lasers supply energy to the body in the form of non-thermal photons of light. Light is transmitted through the skin’s layers (the dermis, epidermis and the subcutaneous tissue or tissue fat under the skin) at all wavelengths in the visible range. However, light waves in the near infrared ranges penetrate the deepest of all light waves in the visible spectrum. When low level laser light waves penetrate deeply into the skin, they optimize the immune responses of our blood. This has both anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive effects. It is a scientific fact that light transmitted to the blood in this way has positive effective throughout the whole body, supplying vital oxygen and energy to every cell.
