Cold Laser Therapy

The Healing Power of Light

Cold laser Therapy, also called “photobiomodulation” or “Low Level laser Therapy (LLLT)”, is a healing modality that uses the power of light to speed healing and reduce pain. Within a specific range of wavelengths, light laser of low intensity applied directly to the skin has the ability to penetrate deep inside the body inducing photochemical and photo-biological responses at the cellular level without heating the tissue.
One of these effects takes place within the mitochondria, the organelle (part of the cell) responsible for making ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate). When light is absorbed it causes a build-up of single oxygen molecules that accelerate the formation of ATP, the cells’ energy and fuel source, to 10 times the average rate. Increased ATP production leads to a secondary cascade of reactions: Increased immune response, acceleration of the healing process and reduction of pain. The result is a dramatic decrease in inflammation along with an improved healing speed of damaged skin, bone, muscle, ligament, nerves, and cartilage.

Cold Laser therapy has been found to offer superior healing and pain relieving effects compared to other electrotherapeutic modalities such as ultrasound, especially in chronic problems and in the early stages of acute injuries. It is a complete system of treating muscle, tendon, ligament, connective tissue, bone, nerve, and dermal tissues.
It is a painless and non-invasive modality and a great alternative for taking medications. Cold laser therapy is a natural way to reduce pain, swelling and inflammation and speed up the recovery process from injuries or musculoskeletal conditions without any adverse effect.

Recovery from Injuries

Cold laser therapy is an ideal solution for treating musculoskeletal injuries. Sportspeople and athletes are particularly susceptible to repetitive sprains and strains, so no wonder they are frequent visitors here at Bodywave.
Cold laser therapy can bring significant relief from pain caused by an injury in a natural way without the adverse effects associated with prescription drugs, or the risks involved with surgery. By reducing inflammation, swelling, pain, and speeding up recovery, it allows sports people to satisfy their need for continuous training. Also, the procedure itself is simple and doesn’t require downtime.

It can help with injuries such as:
  • NLigament and tendon Sprains/Strains
  • NMuscle Sprains/Strains/tenderness
  • NTendonitis, Tennis or golf elbow, shoulder bursitis
  • NJoint soreness (knees, wrists, hip, ankle…)
  • NRecovery from surgery/improve wound scarring

Keep functioning at your best

Cold laser therapy is a good choice for all professionals who suffer from occupational disorders due to prolonged sitting and bad posture during work, or repetitive strenuous movements.
Nowadays numerous professions require long hours spent sitting in front of the computer. Over time, unless something is done, this causes uncomfortable conditions accompanied by pain. In some cases, this significantly complicates daily functioning.
Other professions like Hairdresser or massage therapist are frequently prone to carpal tunnel syndrome or tennis elbow. Construction or handling workers would regularly experience lower back pain, hip and knee pain, shoulder bursitis etc.
Causes of chronic pain in most of the cases are irritated nerves due to prolonged poor body posture or the ongoing repetition of inadequate movements. Cold laser therapy has a natural anti-inflammatory and nerve calming effect which can bring significant pain relief and improve mobility. With regular Cold laser treatments, you can minimize the pain and discomfort imposed by your daily work without taking prescription drugs, in a safe and natural way.

Long sitting usually causes:

• Low Back Pain
• Shoulder Pain
• Neck Pain
• Headache and Migraine

Vitality in Later Years

Elderly people often suffer from loss of physical mobility and degenerative disorders that can disrupt both physical and emotional well-being. Bodywave is helping senior patients using regular treatments of low laser therapy. Over time, it is possible to significantly improve their quality of life, by restoring vitality, reducing pain, improving mobility, reducing the frequency or severity of the symptoms.

The most frequently treated conditions among elderly population are:
• Osteoporosis
• Osteoarthritis
• Rheumatoid arthritis
• Neurodegenerative diseases (Dementia/Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease)

Cold laser therapy is a noninvasive technique with no side effects in dealing with these conditions. This may be extremely important having in mind already fragile patients’ health. It can also help eliminate or reduce a patient’s drug dependence in fighting these conditions which are not curable but can be mitigated.

Better Technology, Better Results

Here at Bodywave, we are using medical-grade equipment in treating a range of acute and chronic conditions. We work with the latest generation of medical grade super pulsed laser system from Multi Radiance Medicals which is the world’s first and only FDA registered cordless laser with TARGET and DOSE technology.

The equipment’s inbuilt scanner allows:
• The precise location of treating points – TARGET
• Automatic determination of optimal dose of photons – DOSE

This increases the chances of therapy success to a large degree because missing the problematic spots or applying the wrong frequency or too low dosage is almost impossible. And these are the main reasons why cold lasers therapy sometimes fails to deliver results.

The powerful laser we use is marked as the safest high-powered Class 1 laser on the market.

High power means even shorter treatments and super-pulsed means your body won’t accommodate and build resistance to it in the long term, as opposed to other laser emitters with continuous light.

  • After tearing my shoulder tendon through training part of the rehabilitation included cold laser to help relieve the pain & assist the repair. After a 8 week laser & massage treatment program I was able to return to training, today I have no pain or discomfort and full movement again in my shoulder, I certainly feel the cold laser & massage treatment aided in my recovery avoiding the need for surgery and would recommend the same treatment programme to anyone who is suffering from the same injury. Bodywave explained the whole process thoroughly and provided excellent service, highly recommended

  • I came to Body Wave Massage to have treatment for lower back pain and arthritis pain in wrists and hands. The combination of Cold Laser and Massage hs produced remarkable results. Swelling in my wrists has been reduced and pain significately reduced. Cecile is very professional and intuitive. She found the causes to problems I have had for years and other medical professionals could not, resorting to prescribing pain killers. I have not taken pain killers since commencing treatment with Body Wave Massage. During my treatment it became clear I needed to quit smoking. I have smoked for 30years, tried and failed to quit several times. Cecile developed a Program for Smoking Cessation with Cold laser. After 4 sessions with Cold Laser smoking cessation treatment I feel confident of quitting. I have quit. Like any treatment for smoking cessation nothing will magically make you quit. Quitting involes a lot of will power and self-discipline. Cold Laser Treatment helped to alleviate the cravings and stress involed in tobacco withdrawal. I can highly recommend Body Wave Massage and Cold Laser. Thank you Cecile for helping me find a better way.

  • I've been smoking for 7+ years, close to 20 cigarettes a day. Cecile talked to me about a cold laser therapy to help stop smoking within 2 weeks by reducing withdrawal symptoms. It's been now 1 month that I haven't touched a cigarette, my cravings are gone, I feel healthier and hanging around smokers is not an issue. Thank you Cecile.

  • Cecile at Bodywave has been treating my upper spinal injury with cold laser therapy for a couple of months. The results of the cold laser combined with Cecile's exercise regime has helped me deal with the discomfort and pain. Definitely has delivered positive results and Cecile is an experienced therapist who spends the time to understand the injury, develop the treatment and maintain the required flexibility and range of movement. I am grateful for the care and attention.
