Cold Laser Therapy
Cold Laser Therapy
Laser therapy uses cold light to penetrate deep into the muscle tissue to promote stimulation of the body’s own healing mechanisms. This process increases metabolism at the cellular level, which accelerates cell repair, increases blood flow and stimulates the immune and lymphatic systems.
Cold laser therapy is used in a variety of ways by doctors, dentists and other allied health professionals. Our therapists are trained in the use of cold laser therapy.
The main use of cold laser therapy is to provide relief from pain and reduce inflammation. Treatment takes about 30 minutes per session and to be effective, should be applied two or more times per week.
Cold laser therapy is used for:
- Pain management and minimisation or relief from pain that may be caused by:
- Ligament sprains, muscle strains, tendonitis, bursitis, tennis elbow, neck pain, lower back pain, knee pain, pain associated with muscle spasms.
- Fibromyalgia and carpal tunnel syndrome.
- Reduction in inflammatory responses such as rheumatoid arthritis and other chronic autoimmune diseases.
- Skin rejuvenation in the treatment of acne and acne scars, psoriasis, burns, vitiligo, edema or swelling of the skin, dermatitis and rashes.
- Wound and ulcer repair including wounds related to diabetes.
- Recovery from other sports injuries and rehabilitation.
For benefits to be evident, several treatment sessions will need to be undertaken.

“Cold Laser therapy has the clinical benefits of tissue repair, inflammation, oedema, pain and improved muscle performance. Cold Laser is not heat therapy or like high-power lasers which can destroy tissue, the application of low-power lasers enhances cell function. The therapy is non-invasive and almost completely absent of side-effects. Scientific research suggests that it can be beneficial in the treatment of muscle pain, injury and dysfunction, oral mucositis, lymphoedema, wound healing, neuropathic pain, fibromyalgia and orthodontics” Jenny Watts, SIT.
