Cold Laser Therapy

Hand cold laser toolAt Brown Chiropractic Center, we are pleased to offer patients state-of-the-art therapies to reduce pain and increase healing. We are experiencing impressive results with the use of cold laser therapy. Also known as low level laser therapy, the laser uses red and near-infrared monochromatic light to stimulate the body’s healing process.

A Drug-Free, Non-Invasive Approach

One of the reasons why the usage of cold laser therapy is becoming more widespread is it’s an excellent alternative to painkillers and surgery. Given the devastating opioid epidemic in the United States, many people are looking for alternatives to potentially dangerous painkillers.

Many patients also would like to avoid going under the knife as surgery also has potential risks.


Top Benefits of Cold Laser Therapy

Here are three main benefits of receiving this modality:

Relieves pain

This therapy is analgesic or anti-pain. Because laser therapy reduces inflammation there is less fluid collection and a reduction in pain. Another way laser therapy helps in reducing pain is it produces high levels of pain-killing chemicals including endorphins.

Increases rate of tissue and cell repair

As lasers penetrate deep into the skin the rate of tissue and cell repair increases. The light from the lasers replenishes the cells with energy. As that energy level in the cells increases, they can retain the nutrients faster and get rid of the waste products. As a result cell repair takes place at an accelerated rate.

Helps wounds heal faster

This modality assists in accelerating the wound healing process. How? It stimulates the activity of fibroblast, which produces collagen. This important protein is essential to repair or replace tissue that’s been injured.


The laser is placed on the skin at the site of the injury to penetrate tissue where it increases circulation and increases healing to restore normal cellular function. The laser does not irritate the skin and is very comfortable. Each treatment lasts just a few minutes. Our laser has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as an effective method for pain relief.

The laser can treat both acute and chronic conditions, such as the following:

  • Knee pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Ankle pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Neck pain

  • Back pain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Elbow pain
  • Foot and toe pain
  • Various sports injuries

Is cold laser therapy safe?

Yes, it is a noninvasive, drug-free modality that has no associated side effects.

How many sessions will I need?

It depends on the condition for which you are seeking treatment. Typically, the minimum number of sessions is six with most people needing 8-12.

Do I need to purchase multiple sessions at a time or can I buy them individually?

Treatment can be purchased individually as required.

Is there anyone who can’t receive cold laser therapy?

Although the therapy is highly safe and effective, if you are pregnant you should not undergo the therapy.
