What is Low Level Cold Laser Therapy?

Cold laser therapy (commonly called LLLT, low level laser therapy) painlessly assists and reduces pain and neurological symptoms. In clinical settings for over 30 years, the noninvasive cold laser uses special light to promote healing in tissue and cellular functions. These low level lasers can treat and soothe pain and neurological syndromes without heating the tissue. Cold and hot lasers differ. Cold laser is therapeutic, but hot lasers are for surgery and aesthetic procedures where heat is necessary to cut or coagulate tissues.


How Does Low Level Laser Therapy Heal?

Low level lasers supply energy to the body as non-thermal photons of light. Ordinary light penetrates through the skin’s layers (the dermis, epidermis and the subcutaneous tissue or tissue fat under the skin) at all wavelengths.  But low level laser light waves penetrate deeply into the skin, optimizing the immune responses of our blood. This boosts immunity and soothes inflammation. Light transmitted to the blood helps the whole body by supplying vital oxygen and energy to every cell.

I'm so glad I found Dr. Tammy Atkinson! After dealing with constant headaches, neck and shoulder pain for months now, I finally found some relief. After only one session my awful headache is gone. I had a treatment and spine adjustment done in the morning and it's evening time now and still no headache :) I didn't think it could work so fast but she has the magic touch. I'm looking forward to more treatments for my neck and shoulder's chronic pain.. I think I might have convinced my husband to get an adjustment also since he sees the difference it made for me. Feeling hopeful that I'll be able to once again live pain free.. Thank you Dr. Atkinson!
