Cold laser improves cellular health so the body can heal. Also known as low-level laser it is a non-invasive and non-drug treatment for most musculoskeletal conditions. There are no side-effects and it’s painless to receive so patients of all ages are able to be treated for conditions such as neck pain, back pain, sports injuries, tendinitis, sciatica and bursitis. Conditions less well understood by doctors such as fibromyalgia and CRPS can also respond to treatment.
Whilst cold laser is more widely available in Europe and the U.S., its become increasingly popular in Australia and is used in a range of hospitals and medical clinics. There are decades of scientific research explaining how cold laser works and importantly that it can lead to long-term improvement in conditions in addition to more immediate symptom relief.
When certain wavelengths of light and certain doses are applied to the injured or painful area the light is absorbed and converted into energy. As that energy (ATP) is restored to the cell, oxidative stress is reduced and this stimulates the body’s healing response. The scientific mechanism by which this works is well understood and documented.

Low-level laser therapy has in excess of 30 years of medical and scientific evidence, thousands of published reports and hundreds of clinical trials.
- Treats the causes
It's important to note that laser therapy treats the underlying causes of pain not just the symptoms
Low-level laser therapy is totally non-invasive as opposed to surgical intervention.
- Painless to receive
Patients may only feel mild warmth during treatment but the treatment itself is painless
LLLT delivers photons (light) to the affected area needing treatment. Unlike medications we are not introducing a synthetic substance to your body.
