The Cold Laser: The Most Versatile Healthcare Tool of the 21st Century

Laser  therapy aims to photo-biostimulate chemically damaged cells via specific wavelengths of light.  When cells are chemically damaged they stimulate the pain cycle.  Laser excites the kinetic energy within cells  by transmitting healing stimuli known as photons.

The skin absorbs these photons via a photo-chemical effect, not photo-thermal; therefore, it does not cause heat damage to the tissues.  Once photons reach the cells of the body, they promote a number of cellular activities.  Laser therapy light can start the production of enzymes, increase the communication between cells, stimulate mitochondria, increase vasodilation and lymphatic drainage, ATP synthesis, and elevate collagen formation substances to prevent the formation of scar tissues.  This is a critical step in reducing long term disabling chronic myofascial pain syndromes.   Simply stated, laser enables patients to get out of pain faster and heal at the same time.

My office offers two of the most advanced cold laser therapies used in the industry. The cold laser has been called “The Therapy” of the 21st century. In over 1700 publications, there have been no recorded negative side-effects.  This versatile tool is totally safe, non-toxic, and easy to use.  In around thirty years of using the cold laser, it has become one of the most versatile conjunctive tools I have ever used.  It has potent synergistic effects with nutritional therapies.  It is both doctor and patient friendly.

This promising tool is called the cold laser, the soft laser, the low-power laser, or the low level laser.  The term laser is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emissions of Radiation.  All lasers emit coherent, focused light that travels in a narrow beam in one direction.

High Power, “hot” lasers have shorter wavelengths, which have catabolic effects that can deliberately destroy tissue in cauterizing and surgical applications

Low Power, “soft”, “cool”, or “cold” lasers have longer wavelengths that have anabolic effects that promote rapid reduction of pain, accelerate healing time, and accelerate growth and repair.

Cold lasers or low-level laser therapy (LLLT) have stimulative effects rather than destructive ones.  It may be the perfect  conjunctive tool for chiropractic treatments and myofascial release.

Clinical applications of the cold laser have included acute and chronic pain reduction from many etiologies, inflammation reduction, enhanced tissue healing, and cell regeneration.  The results have shown very rapid pain reduction and accelerated recovery times, far exceeding conventional methods.

Benefits of Laser Therapy:

Non-ToxicVirtually No Contra-Indications


Easy to Apply

No Side Effects or Pain

Very Safe

Highly Effective for Patient (more than 90% efficacy)

Superior Alternative to: Analgesics, NSAID’s, Other Medications, Other Modalities

Reduces Need for Surgery

Therapeutic Laser Biological Effects:

Rapid Cell Growth — Laser light accelerates cellular reproduction and growth.

Faster Wound Healing — Laser light stimulates fibroblast development and accelerates collagen synthesis in damaged tissue.

Increased Metabolic Activity —  Higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells and thus greater production of the basic food source for cells, Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP).

Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation — Laser light reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from cuts, scratches, burns or post surgery.

Anti-Inflammatory Action — Laser light reduces swelling caused by bruising or inflammation of joints to give enhanced joint mobility.

Increased Vascular Activity — Laser light induces temporary vasodilation increasing blood flow to damaged areas.

Stimulated Nerve Function

Slow recovery of nerve function in damaged tissue can result in “dead” limbs or numb areas. Laser light speeds the process of nerve cell reconnection to bring the numb areas back to life
