Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy is an effective, non-invasive treatment that can eliminate pain quickly with virtually no side-effects.
Healing and Pain Relief Virtually at the Speed of Light
Organelles within each of your cells called mitochondria are responsible for energy production. The more mitochondria you have in given cells or increased efficiency of these organelles allows your cells to perform better. Laser light therapy stimulates the mitochondria to work more efficiently allowing cells to recover, rebuild and function better.
The Story of Cold Laser Therapy
The first lasers were discovered in 1960-1961. Soon after, Hungarian Endre Mester noted possible medical applications of lasers in 1967 wherein hair was seen to grow and wound healing was stimulated in mice. (1)(2)
Cold laser therapy, also known as Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) or photobiostimulation has gained favor in the medical community, particularly in the fields of physical medicine and rehabilitation. These specialties concern themselves with treating patients with manual therapies and avoid medication or surgery until absolutely necessary. Cold laser therapy is a perfect match and has found its way into rehab centers and sports physician offices worldwide. Every major professional and many collegiate and Olympic training facilities use laser therapy today.
Medical use of lasers has grown over time to include conditions such as myocardial infarcts, stroke, brain disease such as degeneration and traumatic brain injury.
Neurology continues to be the most widely recognized medical use of lasers. Brain diseases and traumatic brain injuries are successfully managed via transcranial laser light therapy with the benefits of virtually no side-effects and no invasive procedures such as surgery or medications. Outside of the central nervous system, peripheral nerve regeneration and pain relief can be attained with laser therapy benefiting patients with carpal tunnel syndrome, peripheral neuropathy, nerve entrapment, neuritis, fibromyalgia, etc.

Our Orange, CA Chiropractic Rehabilitation center has successfully used cold laser therapy since 2005. We have developed specific treatment protocols for quickly relieving pain and improving function for many conditions including:
- Mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) and Concussion from sports injuries and car accidents
- Chronic headaches
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Peripheral neuropathy
- Plantar fasciitis
- Radiculitis and neuritis
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Tendinitis (Tennis and Golfer’s elbow, Rotator cuff syndrome)
What to Expect with Cold Laser Therapy
First, an initial evaluation/examination must be done to determine whether your condition is right for therapy.
Next, a plan is devised to implement cold laser and other therapies to correct and heal your condition.
Research indicates that it can take anywhere from 6 to 30 sessions for improvement. Your specific plan designed after your exam will have a more specific schedule with numbers of visits, insurance implications and out of pocket costs.
