Here at Meek Chiropractic, we endeavor to always be at the forefront of innovative therapeutic services and technologies. One of the exciting healing treatments we offer is cold laser therapy. Cold laser therapy, also known as low-level laser therapy, has a variety of healing applications that can help with many different conditions.
What is Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold laser therapy gets its name from the fact that the lasers have no thermal effect. The intensity of the lasers is so low that they don’t heat body tissue. Typically, higher intensity lasers are used in surgery to destroy tumors or tissue. Low-level lasers are instead used to stimulate tissue.
The cold laser is applied to a specific area of the body, where the light is then absorbed. The cells react in a way that promotes healing and regeneration. The treatments are straightforward, quick, non-invasive, and pain-free. Also, the FDA has cleared these lasers for use in the USA, so you can rest assured that your treatment will be very safe.
As far as results go, it’s important to keep in mind that cold laser therapy is focused on healing your body’s cells. This means you will most likely feel relief within a few hours of the procedure, but the effects tend to be cumulative. Meaning the more treatment you receive, the stronger your cells become over time. Ongoing treatment can eventually get you to a point where you don’t need treatment anymore, and you may even achieve permanent relief.
What Does Cold Laser Therapy Treat?
Cold laser therapy has a wide array of applications. The conditions that can possibly be treated with cold laser therapy include, but are not limited to:
- Muscle Pain
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Arthritis Pain
- Carpal Tunnel
- Tennis Elbow
- Neck Pain
- Back Pain
- Post Operative Healing

Cold laser therapy is even used for acupuncture and skin rejuvenation. It’s an extremely promising technology and new applications are being found for it regularly.
