Benefits and Uses of Cold Laser Therapy
Cold Laser Therapy Applications, Uses & Benefits
The World Health Organization (WHO) Uses the term Cold Lasers and other terms that are interchangeably used to describe the same thing: Low Level Lasers, Soft Lasers, Healing Laser, Therapeutic Laser, PhotoBioModulating Laser, Biostimulating Laser, Personal Portable Laser and Professional Laser. The most recent attempt at naming this therapy goes to Photobiomodulation or PBM, which is considered a non-invasive, non-thermal therapy that stimulates cells to generate more energy and undergo self-repair through the use of near infrared (NIR) light. The beauty of Cold Laser Therapy (CLT) and PBM is that there are no negative side effects.

Many Clinical Case Studies Prove Low Level Laser Therapy’s Effectiveness Treating Numerous Conditions Including:
• PAIN – Low Level Laser Therapy has been cleared by the FDA as an adjunct treatment method for pain related to shoulder injuries.
• Carpal Tunnel Syndrome – Low Level Laser Therapy has been cleared by the FDA as an adjunct treatment method for this condition.
• Epicondylitis (Tennis Elbow) – Simunovic treated 324 patients . . . complete pain relief and restored functional ability were achieved in 82% of the acute patients and 66% of the chronic cases. J Clin Laser Med & Surg. 1998; 16 (3): 145-151
• Fibromyalgia – Longo treated 846 patients with fibromyositic rheumatism during a 15 year period. About 2/3 benefited from the treatment with regard to local pain, hypomobility and phlogosis. J Clin Laser Med Surg. 1997; 15 (5): 217-220
• Headache/Migraine – Wong treated 20 patients with migraine or symptoms resembling migraine. The pain disappeared after 1-5 minutes. Proc 9th Congress Soc Laser Surgery and Medicine, Anaheim, CA: 2-6 Nov. 1991
• Low Back Pain –Soriano performed a double-blind trial with elderly people suffering from chronic low back pain. Treatment was effective in 71% of the laser group and 36% of the sham group. The pain disappeared completely in 45% of the laser group and 15% of the sham group. Lasers Surg Med. 1998 Suppl 10, p. 6
• Rheumatism/Osteoarthritis – Palmgren conducted a controlled double-blind study on 35 patients with rheumatoid arthritis of the hand. In the experimental group, grip strength and movement were improved while swelling, pain and morning stiffness were reduced. Lasers in Medical Science, 1989; 4: 193.
• Wound Healing – Palmgren investigated the effect of Low Level Laser Therapy on infected abdominal wounds after surgery. Healing time to half wound size was 6.8 days in the laser group compared to 14 days in the placebo group. Lasers Surg Med 1991; Suppl 3:11
• Acupuncture – In addition, laser light can be used to stimulate acupuncture points in a non-invasive, pain-free manner. Low Level Laser Therapy Provides New Treatment Possiblities, Dr. Melyni Worth, Ph.D., World Equine Veterinary Review, Vol. 3, No. 3, 1998
• Bacterial Infection – In research led by Michael Hamblin of Mass. Gen. Hospital and Harvard Medical School, mice with surgically induced wounds were dosed with bioluminescent bacteria to create potentially lethal infections. Utilizing a 665 nm laser diode photodynamic therapy (Low Level Laser Therapy) the researchers found that “infected wounds healed significantly faster with the PDT method. PDT shows promise as a topical antimicrobial alternative that may work even faster than antibiotics.” The Journal of Infectious Diseases, June 1, 2003, PP 1717-1725.
• Allergic Rhinitis – Neuman & Finkelstein studied 50 patients in a double-blind randomized study. Following treatment with a 660 nm red laser, 72% of the treatment group reported improvement of symptoms as compared to 24% of the placebo group. Ann Allergy Asthma Immunol 1997;78:399-406
• Blood Pressure – Umeda tested the effects of a Low Level Laser on the control of blood pressure via energy administered via the medulla oblongata. The results from a group of 30 patients suffering from hypertension were positive in 80% of the patients. Laser Therapy. 1990; 2(2): 59

Medical Uses Of Low Level Lasers aka Cold Lasers:
NOTE! The following reviews of low level lasers and low level laser products is taken from recently published international literature, much of which is available utilizing any good web search engine and the search terms “low level laser” or “low level laser therapy”. In most countries other than the United States, low level lasers are legal to use on human subjects by both medical practitioners and by the lay people themselves. Dozens of Therapeutic Cold Laser Devices have been FDA Cleared for use in the US, and a number of them are approved as home use laser with the highest level of Class I for safety. Also popular are Class 3b lasers that pose a little more risk to the eye, and are thus sold with eye protection.

Veterinary Use Of Low Level Lasers
Low level laser therapy has been used in the US by veterinarians since the mid 1980’s. These lasers are mostly higher power low level lasers, aka Cold Lasers. These lasers range in power from 20-50 mW in the visible light range a 500 -1000 mW in the infrared range. Wavelengths vary, but the most common are 635-660 nm in the visible spectrum and 808 to 830 in the near infrared spectrum. Some of these lasers are a single laser diode for acupuncture on animals or for the treatment of small areas. Some of the best at home use Cold Lasers or Veterinary Lasers that we have found here.
Veterinary lasers are registered with the FDA and are legal to sell and buy.
