Risks and Benefits of Cold Laser Therapy
What is Cold Laser Therapy?  

Cold laser therapy, aka low level light therapy, is a light therapy used to treat various musculoskeletal injuries. The laser emits infrared light that when absorbed by cells causes biochemical changes that can help promote healing. 

Specifically, infrared light when used at therapeutic levels promotes vasodilation, increasing blood flow to the tissues. Additionally, laser therapy can promote fibroblast stimulation and collagen synthesis leading to fibrous scar tissue reduction and faster wound healing.


Laser therapy has additionally been shown to play a role in local nerve stimulation,serving as a potential additional therapy for patients experiencing neurologic deficits surrounding incisions. 

Class 4 cold laser therapy was FDA approved in 2001 for professional use. Risks associated with cold laser therapy may consist of ocular damage if not properly used. During your laser therapy session, you will be provided protective eye wear to minimize the risk of ocular damage.
