Soft Tissue Injuries Q & A

What is cold laser therapy?

Cold lasers emit specific wavelengths of light that create energy. This light energy stimulates a series of metabolic reactions in cells that eventually result in repairing damaged tissue. Pain, swelling, and inflammation decrease as the damage is repaired.

What conditions can you treat with cold laser therapy?

The light energy produced by the cold laser affects all cell types, including muscle, ligament, cartilage, and nerve cells. Conditions that may respond to cold laser therapy include:

  • Chronic arthritis pain
  • Neck, back, and knee pain
  • Acute strains and sprains
  • Tendonitis
  • Neuromuscular conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome and fibromyalgia

Dermatologists use cold laser therapy for skin rejuvenation and to treat various skin problems, such as burns and rashes. It’s also effective in treating hard-to-heal wounds diabetics sometimes experience. Ongoing research is evaluating its potential for treating brain injury, spinal cord injury, degenerative nervous system diseases, and numerous other illnesses.

What is a treatment like?

Cold laser systems include a handheld device that your chiropractor places directly over the injured area. Depending on the area being treated, the device is held in place for 30 seconds to several minutes. The red and near infrared light emitted by the laser can reach a depth of 2-5 centimeters.

Is it safe?

The low-level light energy used in cold laser therapy is nonthermal, meaning the laser doesn’t heat your tissues. There’s no discomfort during the therapy session. It’s a completely noninvasive treatment method that requires no recovery time and no reported side effects. It’s considered quite safe when administered by a qualified professional, such as the experts at First Team Medical Clinics.

Will cold laser therapy work for me?

We take a holistic approach to treatment. Our trained medical providers assess your soft tissue injuries to determine which treatments, including cold laser therapy, can eliminate your pain and heal your injuries.

Cold laser therapy is a quick treatment process, designed to boost your body’s healing processes. Several sessions may be necessary to achieve desired results.
