It is estimated that 116 million+ Americans experience musculoskeletal pain every year, and as a result, many people suffer daily with painful and debilitating symptoms.
Those who seek help for relief from their pain are often subjected to invasive surgical procedures, addictive pain medications, and expensive appointments that may be especially difficult to afford when long recovery periods require time away from work.
The good news is, advances in modern medical technology have produced many alternative therapies that not only provide significant pain relief, but are also easy for patients to endure. One such remarkable therapy is known as cold laser therapy, or low-level laser therapy (LLLT).
What is Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold laser therapy is an innovative treatment method that utilizes a hand-held low-intensity laser to reduce pain and stimulate healing. This non-surgical technique requires the application of low-level light directly targeted to areas of injury, inflammation and/or pain, without causing injury to your body’s tissue.
How it works
When the low-intensity light is passed through layers of epidermis, it is then absorbed by the body’s tissue to interact with light-sensitive cells, (similar to the way that sunlight is absorbed by plants for photosynthesis and growth). Damaged cells respond to the light energy with a physiological reaction that promotes regeneration for more rapid and effective healing.
What Conditions Can Be Treated with Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold laser therapy is used to treat myriad conditions, including:
- musculoskeletal pain
- sports injuries
- joint pain
- back pain
- knee pain
- soft tissue injuries
- minor sprains
- muscle strains
- general aches & pains
- muscle spasms
- carpal tunnel syndrome
There are a variety of other ailments that may be treated with cold laser therapy. To determine whether your condition may benefit from this effective treatment, consult with a qualified medical provider who offers cold laser therapy as an available treatment option.

- Non-invasive (non-surgical)
