Cold Laser Therapy

Cold Laser Therapy (CLT) uses a low-level laser combining a frequency of red LED light, infrared light, and infrared laser, which passes through a static magnetic field.

CLT can be clinically applied to damaged tissue with the goal of helping cells function at a healthy state. In practical terms, we use it to assist with the management of pain and inflammation, and to speed up the healing process.

Growing scientific research shows that CLT can reduce pain, resolve chronic inflammation, reduce swelling, and speed up the healing process while strengthening damaged tissue (1-5).

Cold Laser may be worth considering as a non-invasive treatment alternative to surgery or drugs.

 

We usually incorporate CLT as part of your chiropractic care, however it can also be used as a stand-alone treatment.

Please note that a full physical examination is required to determine if Cold Laser may be able to help you. Simply choose ‘Chiropractic’ appointment on our booking link below.
