Laser Q & A

What is cold laser therapy?

Unlike hot laser therapy, which uses heat to cut through tissue or destroy tumors in the body, cold laser therapy, or low-level laser therapy (LLLT), triggers energy production in tissue to relieve pain and stimulate your body’s natural healing abilities.

Cold laser therapy provides numerous benefits when compared to alternative treatments, like surgery. It can:

  • Reduce swelling and inflammation
  • Minimize scar tissue
  • Stimulate nerve function 
  • Restore function and reduce numbness
  • Improve blood flow
  • Accelerate the healing process
  • Relieve acute and chronic pain

Paladin Chiropractic is proud to use cold lasers exclusively from Multi Radiance Medical®, which produces the only cold lasers on the market supported by scientific research.

Why would I need cold laser therapy?

Paladin Chiropractic uses cold laser therapy to treat many pain-related conditions, including:

  • Neck pain
  • Knee pain
  • Arthritis
  • Back pain
  • Bursitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Slow-healing diabetic wounds
  • Tennis elbow
  • Ligament sprains
  • Muscle spasms

Cold laser therapy also reduces inflammation to help heal damaged joints and tissues.

How does cold laser therapy work?

Your chiropractor uses varying wavelengths and outputs of low-level light in the area where you feel the most pain. These non-thermal photons of light penetrate deep into your skin to target your damaged tissues.

Your body then absorbs this light, which isn’t hot enough to cause tissue damage like hot laser therapy. When the cells at your injury site absorb this light, it sparks a regenerative reaction that stimulates your body’s natural healing response.

Over time, your body naturally repairs its damaged tissues, muscles, and joints for lasting pain relief.

What happens during cold laser therapy?

During your cold laser therapy session, your chiropractor uses a small handheld device, about the size of a flashlight, on the area that’s causing your pain. While you can feel the device against your skin, it isn’t cold or painful.

How long each treatment takes depends on your injury or condition and the severity of your pain. You may need multiple sessions to feel lasting relief.

If pain is stopping you from leading a healthy, active life, cold laser therapy can help you return to the activities you love without pain. To schedule an appointment with Paladin Chiropractic, call or book online today.
