Chronic Pain Management

With over 50 million people suffering from chronic pain in North America alone, it is not surprising to learn that a large number of patients are seeking alternative treatment methodologies to the overused prescription medications that are now clinically proven to have significant side-effects.*

Cold Laser Therapy
is a non-invasive, non-toxic treatment methodology that is able to be used for numerous types of acute and chronic pain. The treatment works by delivering billions of photons to the tissue surface driving this energy down to the damaged cells that require this energy for healing.  The superpulsed laser technology is able to drive light energy up to 4” below the skin surface. Light energy of the correct wavelength(color) and power is able to dramatically increase the healing rate of damaged cells; thus allowing the body to heal itself at an accelerated rate. Pain is believed to originate from an ionic differentiation of potassium and sodium gradient across a cellular membrane. The superpulsed technology with its 905nm near infrared technology has been clinically proven to be absorbed by the inter-lipid layer forming the cellular membrane of cells.  The increase in cellular membrane permeability induced by the laser treatment causes a reabsorption of sodium and potassium molecules thus removing the gradient and hence the pain signal.*


Anti-Inflammation

Cold Laser Therapy has an anti-edemic effect as it causes vasodilation, but also because it activates the lymphatic drainage system (drains swollen areas).

Anti-Pain (Antalgic)

Due to less inflammation, there is less of an oedema and thus less pain. Cold Laser Therapy stimulates the vasodilation and lymphatic drainage, which increases the re absorption of pain-causing products. Cold Laser Therapy regulates the sodium-potassium pump (this pump maintains the potential across the membrane of a nerve cell, which leads to pain transmission signals) and thus removes the transmission of pain signals from this area.*



“I had to withdraw from the Rogers Masters in Montreal due to a severe abdominal muscle strain. For the next two weeks, I had two laser treatments per day, which accelerated the tissue healing and reduced the pain. In the next two tournaments I was runner-up at the Western & Southern Financial Group Masters at Cincinnati and I then clinched the Pilot Pen Tennis at New Haven. Laser treatments were very helpful in accelerating my recovery time.”*

“I feel compelled to let it be known how successful Laser Therapy has been in reducing swelling and pain of osteoarthritis in my right hand and fingers. After four to five sessions of Laser Therapy, there was an extremely noticeable reduction in swelling. It was now almost pain free and because of the increased motion in fingers, I was able to resume activities which for a long time which hadn't been possible.”*
