Frequently Asked Questions About Cold Laser Therapy
1. What is Cold Laser Therapy (CLT)?
CLT is the application of a cold laser over body, muscles, joints, spine, skin, organs, glands or acupoints to deliver photons (energy packets) to sick, injured or compromised cells and tissues. Thus boosting a natural healing response, increasing blood circulation, ATP production, endorphin release, pain reduction and accelerated healing.
2. Is CLT painful?
Cold Laser Therapy is a painless procedure. You may feel a warm sensation or slight tingling because nerves are being stimulated, but it is completely painless and if any sensations are felt they will subside shortly after your treatment is finished. Most commonly people will feel a sense of relaxation, slight euphoria, relief from pain and stress and an overall sensation of increased relaxation in body and mind.
3. Does CLT involve any medication and is it safe?
Cold Laser Therapy is a completely safe, non-invasive, medication and drug-free treatment.
4. How long are CLT treatments?
Treatments can vary from seconds to minutes per point or location, depending upon the treatments protocol, type and power of the laser. Many people experience significant relief in 1-2 treatments. The length of treatment depends upon the number of things being treated, including the type of therapist doing the treatment and the type of laser being used. While some complete treatments will occur in 5-20 minutes other types of treatments can take 30-60 minutes treating the entire body and working on a variety of different systems such as blood, lymph, nervous system, chakras, organs, glands, joint, spine and musculoskeletal system issues.
5. What is Cold Laser Therapy generally used for?
CLT is incredibly useful for rehabilitation and general pain complaints. This type of therapy treats a wide variety of pain, spine and nerve issues including neurological conditions, pain syndromes such as sprains and strains, acute and chronic injuries, and speeds up wound healing and fractures. The additional ATP along with reduction in inflammation supports deep transformative healing. Improves performance and recovery in sports and reduces athletic recovery in both human and animal patients.
6. Are there whole body benefits in addition to reducing pain?
Yes, whole body inflammation is reduced overall with this therapy. When we complement Cold Laser Therapy with chiropractic and/or massage care, it can help increase the rate, strength and quality of healing tissue. This therapy also helps regulate the immune system and stimulates nerve tissues to function optimally. In terms of healing, it has been shown to generate new, healthy cells within soft tissue to promote wound healing with less scarring.
7. Is this therapy FDA approved?
Cold Laser Therapy has been practiced and used successfully for the past 50 years. It is FDA approved and the Scalar Wave Laser is FDA Cleared and Health Canada Cleared for a wide range of common issues including pain relief, reduction of inflammation, increasing blood circulation and relaxing contracted tissues. CLT is used by US Olympic teams and most sports teams worldwide, to increase performance and recovery from accidents, injuries and overexersion.
8. Will it take long to experience results?
Most people experience results within their first or second treatment. Results are almost immediately evident, but some people may need 3-12 sessions to feel significant improvement in stubborn issues that are either chronic or that have not responded well to other forms of treatment. If you are experiencing a degenerative or immune compromised condition, it would be most advantageous for you to own and use your own laser regularly. This would allow for you to continue experiencing the many healing benefits and rejuvenating qualities of CLT on a regular basis in the comfort of home.
9. What are some of the health concerns that Cold Laser Therapy can treat?
Many specific conditions, both acute and whole body respond to cold laser therapy. These may include, but are not limited to, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, frozen shoulder, back pain, neck pain, fibromyalgia, headache, migraine, carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), sinus concerns, deep bruising, tendon and ligament issues, and sciatica.
10. How long do the effects of the treatment last?
A single treatment can continue working in a persons body for up to 24-36 hours. Treatment length and frequency varies, depending upon the condition. An acute soft tissue injury or open wound may require multiple short treatments initially. The interval between treatments will lengthen as the issue improves. Chronic conditions typically take longer to treat, with more treatments being the norm (up to 20), in order to support a change or transition out of old holding patterns, to allow deeper and more transformative healing to occur. The treatments have a cumulative effect, where each proceeding treatment builds on the success of the previous treatments to alleviate pain and inflammation, supporting rejuvenation and the overall healing process.
