What is Cold Laser Therapy?

Acute and chronic conditions can both be treated by cold laser therapy. Here at Summit Chiropractic and Longevity Center in San Rafael, CA, we utilize cold laser therapy to help our patients get back to what is most important- life.

There are many different types of conditions that can benefit from cold laser therapy including arthritis, tendonitis, neck pain, and back pain. In addition, soft tissue injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, and fibromyalgia are also a few conditions that benefit from cold laser therapy.
Cold laser therapy can relieve pain, promote faster healing of injuries, reduce swelling and spasms, and increase functionality. This procedure involves emitting non-thermal light through the skin and into the tissue that is affected. The cold laser can react with all types of cells. The light reacts with elements in the cells and creates a photosynthesis-like reaction. The reaction creates energy and events in the cells that lead to faster healing, reduced pain, and reduced inflammation.

If pain is slowing you down, be sure to find out if cold laser therapy could help you. To schedule an appointment with Summit Chiropractic and Longevity Center, call our San Rafael, CA office at (415) 721-7520 or visit our website,
