Class 3B Cold Laser

Cold Laser treatment has been used around the world in human medicine for over 30 years. There are absolutely NO known or documented negative effects.

It has, however, been successfully used to address numerous conditions, including:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Hip dysplasia
  • ACL tears
  • Degenerative myelopathy
  • Intervertebral disc disease
  • Chronic trigger points
  • Muscle and tendon contractions
  • Lick granulomas
  • Aural hematomas

Cold Laser is a non-toxic, non-invasive, non-painful treatment that uses coherent light emission from a low intensity laser diode placed directly on the area to be treated. The absorption of this light increases the cellular metabolic rate, releases beta-endorphins, increases cortisol production, facilitates neurotransmission, improves lymphatic drainage, stimulates the immune response, promotes healthy tissue growth, and essentially begins a cascade of positive effects.

Because Cold Laser has a cumulative effect, typically 3 to 5 treatments, varying from 15 to 30 minutes in duration, are required to see results. The end result of Cold Laser treatment is the restoration of normal function of the cell unit. It should be noted that normally functioning cells are not adversely affected. In contrast to other therapies, Cold Laser is repairative rather than simply modulating symptomatology.
