Cold Laser Therapy
Find Fast Relief for Your Aches and Pains with Cold Laser Therapy
Did You Know Cold Laser Therapy Could Help You Beat Your Pains?
Cool Laser Therapy heals tissue ailments by injecting billions of photons of visible and invisible laser light deep into tissue structures. Tissue naturally contains protein strands called chromophores and cytochromes located in the mitochondria of a cell (known as the cell engine), which have the unique ability to absorb laser light energy and transform it into chemical energy for the cell. This chemical energy is utilized by the tissue to significantly accelerate the healing process and reduce pain in the body naturally.

How does Cold Laser Therapy work?
Cool Laser Therapy (“CLT“), also referred to as Low Level Laser Therapy (“LLLT”) or PhotoBioModulation (“PBM”), has been actively used and researched for nearly 60 years. To date, there are more than 4,000 published studies worldwide involving CLT, with approximately 400 of those being double-blind randomized controlled studies.
Do cold laser therapy treatments hurt?
There is always some apprehension that comes along with laser therapy – we always receive questions such as, “does it hurt?” or “is it safe?”
It is understandable to be hesitant before receiving a new form of treatment that you may not be entirely familiar with. However, we can definitively say that laser therapy does NOT hurt and it IS completely safe!
Cold laser treatments are completely pain-free, despite common skepticism. When you receive a laser treatment, you will feel little to no sensation at all, depending on the type of laser that is being used.
What you may feel is a gentle, soothing warmth from the laser, that many patients report as being quite pleasant. Treatments typically last between 2-10 minutes and patients begin seeing results after just a few short sessions.
How do I know if cold laser therapy will benefit me?
Cold laser therapy can be used for both acute and chronic conditions, including neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain and sciatica, arthritis, bursitis, disc injuries, TMJ, sports injuries, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, migraines, soft tissue damage, and MORE!
Before determining your treatment plan, one of our dedicated Toronto physiotherapists and chiropractors will conduct a physical evaluation and assessment of your medical history in order to diagnose your condition and decide which treatment options will best benefit you.
Both the type of the cold laser and its strength will be dependent upon the results of your initial evaluation.
