Cold Laser Therapy at The Callard Clinic

How Does Cold Laser Therapy Work?

laser therapy being applied on a patient's shoulderThe device uses low levels of energy, or photons. Unlike higher-frequency lasers used for surgery, they don’t heat or cut your skin. Photons penetrate deep into a painful joint. The light triggers chemical changes that help damaged cells and tissues heal and regrow.

Cold Laser alone has been shown to help reduce scar tissue, inflammation, adhesions, and pain. It also will create more cell activity to increase the speed of recovery in most cases.

Some examples of what we use cold laser therapy to treat at The Callard Clinic include:

  • Joint pain from arthritis
  • Muscle strains and joint sprains
  • Muscle spasms
  • Neuropathic pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Neck pain and stiffness
  • Sports injuries
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Tennis elbow and runner’s knee

  • Treatment is painless
  • Highly effective for many diseases and conditions
  • Eliminates pain
  • Reduces the need for pharmaceuticals
  • Restores normal range of motion and physical function
  • Easily applied

  • Non-invasive
  • Non-toxic
  • No known adverse effects
  • No drug interactions
  • Often makes surgical interventions unnecessary
  • Provides a treatment alternative for patients that have not responded to other therapies

To see if cold laser therapy is right for you, you should find out if you’re a good candidate for the therapy before seeking treatment. Most people can safely undergo cold laser therapy because it’s gentle and noninvasive. You may be a good candidate for cold laser therapy if:

  • You have nagging muscle or joint pain
  • You have a prior injury site that still bothers you
  • You still experience pain and discomfort after a surgery

At your consultation, your provider will help you determine whether cold laser therapy is right for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many treatments will I need?

The treatment plan depends on the nature of the condition being treated. For some acute ( less than 6 weeks) conditions, 3-6 treatments may be sufficient. More chronic (6 weeks to several months) conditions may require as many as 6-15 sessions. Conditions such as moderate to severe arthritis may require ongoing periodic care to control pain.

How long before I will feel the results?

You may feel improvement in your condition (usually pain reduction) after the very first treatment. Each treatment is cumulative and results are often felt after 2-4 sessions. Treatments just take a few minutes, however the therapeutic effect continues to relieve symptoms and heal tissues long after your treatment.

Are the results long-lasting?

Therapeutic laser therapy is about healing – not masking a condition, or covering it up. People feel better from this therapy because they are better, and that’s long-lasting relief.

Can laser therapy be used in conjunction with other forms of treatment?

Yes. In fact, laser therapy is even more effective when combined with other forms of therapy. These may include, chiropractic, massage, soft tissue mobilization, electrotherapy, and following surgery.
