Cold Laser Therapy in Fort Collins

Laser beam illustrationCold laser therapy is a treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and help accelerate your healing process. Cold laser treatment can be used on people suffering from both acute and chronic conditions in order to eliminate pain and swelling, increase functionality and reduce spasms.

How It Works

Dr. Kellams will place the cold laser directly on the injured area for a few minutes. At this time, the non-thermal photons of light will be emitted from the laser and pass through the skin layers. The light has the ability to penetrate two to five centimeters below the skin at 90 mw and 830 nm.

When the light energy passes through your skin and reaches the injured area, the energy is absorbed and interacts with the light-sensitive elements in your cells. When cells absorb this light energy, it will assist with normalizing damaged or injured tissue, reducing pain, inflammation, edema and overall healing time.

Dr. Kellams will assist you in getting to the root of your problem as quickly as possible. We understand the many benefits of cold laser therapy and will always go above and beyond for you. If you have any questions about your therapy procedure, we are always willing to answer them. We want you to feel completely comfortable throughout the entire process.

Do I need to be a chiropractic patient to get cold laser therapy?

No, although having chiropractic care in addition to cold laser therapy is always ideal.

How does cold laser help the body heal?

It speeds up your ATP, the energy unit of the cell, to promote healing in your body.

How often will I need cold laser therapy?

It depends on your particular condition. For example, if you sprained your ankle, Dr. Kellams would want to see you three days in a row and you should see significant improvement. If you have inflammation like bursitis, she will recommend that you come in a couple of times a week for probably two or three weeks, depending on your age.

Can I have cold laser therapy before and after surgery?

Yes; before surgery, you will want to have the therapy every day for three days leading up to the surgery and then frequently after the surgery.
