Cold laser therapy, also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT), is an innovative technology that applies specific wavelengths of light to a particular surface of the body. This kind of therapy is used on patients with acute and chronic conditions to reduce or eliminate pain, swelling, spasms and increase their function.

Phoenix Thera-Lase Therapy process
A cold laser is a handheld flashlight-like device used by the clinician to perform the therapy. The device is placed on the affected area for 30 seconds to several minutes, depending on how large the affected area is and on the required dose for the treatment. The low powered laser light passes through the layers of the skin and penetrates the skin up to 15 cm deep.
Once the cells absorb the light energy from the laser treatment, they will start to stimulate regeneration, which would result in:
- Regeneration of damaged tissue
- Reduction of pain and inflammation
- Acceleration of healing
- Muscle relaxation
- Stimulation of nerve regeneration
- Improvement of vascular activity
The positive results of thera-lase therapy is mostly experienced on the 3rd or 4th treatment on which the swelling is minimized and pain is greatly reduced. The full effect will be more visible as you proceed to the treatment plan.
