Healing with Cold Laser Therapy in NE Calgary

Are you suffering from acute or chronic musculoskeletal pain? Then the non-invasive, non-toxic cold laser therapy is an option for NE Calgary residents.

The low-intensity laser stimulates healing at the cellular level and speeds up recovery from pains and injuries.

How Does Cold Laser Therapy Work?

Cold laser therapy uses energy particles generated from superluminous and laser diodes. When applied at the targeted area, the laser light is absorbed into the damaged cells thereby triggering physiological reactions including the release of enzymes. The enzymes, in turn, stimulate the growth of the damaged cells and tissues. As a result, cell regeneration takes place and normal cell structure and function is restored.


The wavelengths between 600 and 700 nanometers are used when superficial tissues are treated. If tissues need deeper penetration, wavelengths between 780 and 950 nanometers are required.


Studies have shown that cold laser therapy provides pain relief as a result of the release of endorphins and serotonin. Studies by NASA have shown that tissue repairs itself up to 40% faster when it is treated with an infrared and visible red light. At our physiotherapy centre in NE Calgary, you can have access to the treatment.
