Cold Laser Therapy

What is Cold Laser Therapy?

Lasers have many uses in medicine, and we at Luke Chiropractic and Sports Injury are happy to be able to offer cold laser therapy to our patients. Cold laser therapy, also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is the “cold” laser equivalent of “hot” lasers (lasers dialed up to a high level) which are used for medical precision. The wavelengths of light used in cold laser therapy were discovered by accident when a scientist in the 60’s realized that his lasers were on too low in the experiments he was conducting but still produced tangible, beneficial results. Ever since its discovery, cold laser therapy has helped athletes and lay people alike recover faster and more completely from injuries.

How Does Cold Laser Therapy Work?

Cold laser therapy works by stimulating accelerated cellular reproduction and growth. During treatment, the laser is placed on or near the affected area, and then photons from the laser are absorbed in the mitochondria of the cell and create position physiological changes. This is due to the fact that photons are small enough for cellular permeability. Cold laser therapy can cut down healing time drastically--with cold laser therapy, it is even possible to heal twice as quickly.

What Does Cold Laser Therapy Treat?

Cold laser therapy is an extremely versatile treatment option\that can be utilized in treating many different ailments. Cold Laser therapy treats a myriad of physical ailments including:

  • Chronic pain
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • scaring
  • sports injuries
  • swelling
  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • soft tissue injuries
  • spasm
  • whiplash
  • joint pain
  • neck pain
  • ligament sprains
  • tendonitis pain
  • back pain
  • neck pain
  • inflammation
  • circulation
  • and more

How Does Cold Laser Therapy Feel?

The word “laser” might make some patients feel wary, but cold laser therapy is actually completely painless. Some patients report feeling some tingling, but this is normal. The tingling sensation can be caused by increased blood flow due to blood-vessel dilation and by cells stimulating nerves as they heal themselves. This may feel strange, but there are no negative side effects. Cold Laser Therapy is FDA approved and completely safe.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I have benefitted tremendously from the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Anderson. Not only has the adjustments helped alleviate my stiffness and aches, but it has helped me have more energy and just feel more balanced over all. A few months ago, I was able to resume a favorite hobby of mine: golf. Due to my previous pain, I never thought that’d be possible."

  • "I was very impressed with the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Anderson. I had received chiropractic in the past for my neck pain, but not to this level of care. After only a few sessions, my symptoms began to disappear, especially my neck pain, and I know I would not have been able to perform to my everyday work functions without the treatment I received."

  • "May says, Dr. Luke is the Best Chiropractor Doctor, I have gone to in all my life. Before seeing Dr. Luke, I used to receive massages and I took Advil daily. I had symptoms of lower back pain, headaches, and pain in my abdomen. Dr. Luke and his style of Chiropractic relieved my headaches and lower back pain; Chiropractic has made me feel much better since I started adjustments with Dr. Luke. Event the pain in my abdomen is gone. I never thought another Chiropractor would be beneficial but I found out that Dr. Luke is the Best that there is. He does make a huge difference and would recommend Dr. Luke to everyone. Thank You, Dr. Luke!"

  • "I am a professional landscaper constantly using my back and body my work is very physical. With severe back pain especially in my lower back area. I would tell anyone the importance of proper alignment, which leads to a good physical body. Your body needs correction and you must take the steps to correct your problem. Whoever hesitates to correct the body's misalignment will lead to malfunctioning and a crippled body. Dr. Luke adjusted my body to have correct alignment. I'm back to work and good to go. Mahalo, Dr. Luke!"

  • "Awesome!!! Helped both my husband and I. First it was my husband- his shoulder would lock up and was stiff and painful. 1st treatment with Cold Therapy/adjustments his shoulder unlocked!!! no more pain or stiffness.
    Then recently I injured my knee, I was on pain medicine and told by my doctor I would need surgery to fix this. I ended up in Dr. Luke's office and have already felt tremendous relief. I mustered up the courage and one day got my back and neck adjusted as well. OMG!!! I am truly enjoying my smooth turning neck and less lower back stiffness due to the adjustments, Don’t be scared just do it !!! And feel great.
    Both my husband n I continue our visits with Dr. Luke . We enjoy the easy going atmosphere . Dr.Luke will teach you how to care for your specific condition . Come and check it out !!! You will be amazed and most happy that you did.."
