What are the Benefits of Cold Laser Therapy

Advanced Pain Relief

Cold laser therapy can treat a variety of chronic and acute conditions. Sometimes also called low-level therapy or infrared laser therapy, cold laser therapy is painless. Cold lasers are small handheld devices that your chiropractor places over areas of your body for a short period of 30 seconds to a few minutes. During this time, non-thermal photons pass through the skin to reach the target areas. Once at the target area, the light interacts with the cells to temporarily relieve pain and eventually heal the injured tissue. Cold laser therapy is one of the many modalities we use at Advanced Pain Relief Clinic in Kitchener and Owen Sound.

Pain Relief

A primary benefit of cold laser therapy is relief from pain caused by conditions such as arthritis, tendinitis, ulcers, fibromyalgia, tears, sprains, headaches, overuse injuries, back pain, neck pain, and plantar fasciitis. Although you may feel some relief after your first session, generally, several sessions bring the best outcome.


Cold laser therapy is non-invasive, meaning that you’ll have none of the recovery time associated with surgical treatments. No medications are involved, and no side effects have been reported. Unlike surgical lasers, cold lasers do not heat the body’s tissues.

Works Alone or In Combination

Because cold therapy is a natural treatment, it works well both alone and in conjunction with many other treatments. These might include spinal manipulation and active release technique. Our chiropractor will assess your condition and recommend the right treatment plan for you.
