Cold Laser Therapy Q & A

by Kevin McNabb, DC

What is cold laser therapy?

Cold laser therapy uses low levels of light to stimulate healing. Unlike surgical or aesthetic lasers, cold laser therapy doesn’t cause your tissues to heat up. Professionals refer to this technique as “cold” laser therapy because the low levels of light aren’t enough to heat your body’s tissues. The level of light is low compared with other forms of laser therapy, such as those that destroy tumors and coagulate tissue.

How does cold laser therapy work?

Dr. McNabb applies low-level light directly to your problem area, where your tissue then absorbs the light. The infrared light therapy leads to a biological reaction that helps your damaged cells regenerate.

During the procedure, you feel the device against your skin, but it creates no heat, sound, or vibration. The treatment is entirely noninvasive and painless. Most of the time, one session takes only a few minutes. Dr. McNabb will determine the number of sessions you need based on your condition.

What’re the benefits of cold laser therapy?

Cold laser therapy is a safe, noninvasive, and effective treatment for acute and chronic conditions. Because this procedure doesn’t require you to take medication, you don’t have to worry about unwanted side effects. Other benefits include the following:

  • Improved circulation
  • Improved healing time; three to five times faster than with other treatments
  • Reduced pain and inflammation
  • Pain relief effects felt immediately

What conditions does cold laser therapy treat?

The primary uses for cold laser therapy are tissue repair and relief from pain and inflammation. Dr. McNabb uses his expertise to apply cold laser therapy to treat a variety of other conditions:

  • Neuropathy: numbness, weakness, and pain from nerve damage, usually in your hands and feet
  • Carpal tunnel: numbness and tingling in your hands and arms caused by a pinched nerve in your wrist
  • Plantar fasciitis: inflammation of a thick band of tissue that connects your heel bone to your toes
  • Tendonitis: inflammation of the tissue connecting your muscle to your bone
  • Pain: shoulder and knee
