Cold Laser Therapy (LLT)

Serving Patients Since 1993

Low Intensity "Cold" Laser Therapy is a painless, highly effective, non-invasive treatment for many soft-tissue injuries, pain, arthritis and other conditions.

LLT uses light energy (photons) at power levels and wavelengths specific to your condition, laser directed light goes through body tissue to stimulate cells directly. Your cells then convert this energy to repair themselves, aiding in your body’s natural healing process.

The therapeutic light beam of low intensity lasers help heal your condition at its root rather than just controlling the symptoms. After 20 years in use by medical professionals and supported by vast international research, there are no known negative side effects associated with laser therapy.

Advantages of Low Intensity Laser Therapy:

  • Painless

  • Non-invasive

  • Non-toxic

  • Easily applied

  • Highly effective

  • No known negative side effects

  • Effectiveness does vary from patient to patient

As with any treatment received at In-Joy Life Chiropractic and Laser Care, your first visit will consist of a detailed health history followed by a physical examination by the doctor and his staff, all of whom are fully trained and certified in low intensity laser therapy. Following your examination and subsequent diagnosis, we will determine whether you are a suitable candidate for laser therapy. A consent form will be provided, outlining any potential risks and side effects.

Depending on the body part that requires treatment, you will either lie down on a table or sit in a chair. Wearing of athletic type clothing helps us to engage and work with body parts with ease and it is recommended that you wear this type of clothing for your treatments. Eye protection will be provided and is mandatory when receiving low intensity laser therapy. Failure to wear eye protection during treatment may result in permanent eye damage. Patients must also agree to never look directly into the laser beam or stare at their bright reflections, due to risk of permanent eye damage.

During treatment, the laser light source is placed directly on the skin and you should not feel any discomfort or pain from the application of the low intensity laser. The Bioflex Laser System is non-toxic, non-traumatic, and non-invasive. Occasionally, you may feel a warm sensation on the skin. You will be asked to notify us if this sensation becomes too intense, so the factors can be adjusted to your needs.
