Cold laser therapy is an advanced therapy technique designed to help reduce pain and to encourage soft tissue healing. Cold lasers are given their name because they have a focused, low-level light beam that does not get hot or cut the skin, and is therefore, used for therapeutic purposes. The light is able to penetrate the skin and is strong enough to stimulate the body's own natural cellular reactions which helps to promote healing and relieve pain. If you are looking for pain relief or treatment of an injured area, we at Arlington Chiropractic Clinic, P.C. in Arlington Heights, IL, are here to assist.
What Is Cold Laser Therapy Used For?
Cold laser therapy can help deal with chronic issues such as the inflammation of an arthritic joint, or conditions that are more acute. Cold laser therapy can help with the following situations:
FDA cleared for:
- • Minor muscle and joint pain
- • Arthritis and muscle spasm
- • Joint stiffness

What to Expect
During a cold laser therapy session, we will give you protective goggles to wear, and hold a device, about the size and shape of a flashlight, over the area of your body to be treated. The light will travel through the upper layers of your skin, and interact with the lower layers of tissue receiving the therapy, commonly causing a warming sensation.
Cold laser therapy has been approved by the FDA and is safe in treating many disorders. It is evidence-based and safe, effective at tissue healing and pain modulation, is simple to use, with fast treatment delivery, and encourages accelerated healing.
