Cold laser therapy, also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT) or photobiomodulation, uses low-powered lasers at highly specific frequencies to promote tissue healing. While stronger “hot” lasers cause tissue destruction, such as those used in cosmetic clinics to remove unwanted body hair, age spots, or scars, cold laser therapy stimulates regeneration and energy production. 

When the laser reaches the target tissues, it interacts with the cells through molecules that match its light frequency. This soothes inflammation; boosts metabolism, both in terms of energy production and repair; and can even break up scarring as healthy tissue forms. 

The regenerative properties of cold laser therapy may relieve: 

  • Pain, both acute and chronic
  • Muscle and ligament strains
  • Tendonitis 
  • Bursitis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Arthritis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Burns
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia 


Unlike pharmaceutical interventions for pain and inflammation, cold laser therapy is not addictive, does not damage tissue, and can be used alongside other treatment without safety concerns. You may notice reduced pain, increased function, and faster wound healing.
