Cold Laser Therapy in Loveland!
If you have been living in pain or experiencing a long recovery period after an injury, Cold Laser Therapy (also known as Low-level Laser Therapy or LLLT) may be the answer you’ve been waiting for…
It is rare that a few simple changes to lifestyle can reap as many benefits as simply adding exercise and hydration to your daily routine. For people newly-incorporating these simple lifestyle changes, the benefits are nothing short of “miraculous.”
Rivaling the impressive list of miraculous benefits or water and exercise, with minimal side-effects or risk, is our latest addition to patient services: Cold Laser Therapy. This non-invasive, drug-free treatment is a highly-effective treatment for many conditions while promoting healing and speeding recovery.
Cold Laser Therapy is a process that involves shining a low-level laser light at the areas of your body that require healing and relief from tension. This is a painless process. The professional Laser lights used to apply this method are “cold,” meaning there is no heat. There is no pain, no preparation for the procedure, and no side-effects.
LLLT can be applied to any area of the body. Injuries to the back, arms, legs, joints, muscles, and face may all benefit by this breakthrough procedure. Studies have shown up to a 95% confidence level that these treatments are highly effective in reducing pain through a prescribed course of treatments.
“If a drug company found a drug that could do all of that, it would immediately be hailed as a miracle drug-the most dramatically beneficial drug ever created.
If one supplement could do all of that, every American would be taking it every day.
The only reason why healthcare providers are not performing Laser therapy on EVERY patient is the lack of knowledge of the far-reaching effects of this technology. The case could be made that Low Level Laser is the single most important therapy a practitioner can add to their services.” ~ Dr. Trevor Berry DC, DACNB
How Does Cold Laser Therapy Work?
Lasers come in different colors and power outputs, and not all lasers accomplish the same goals. Lasers that cause a “healing” affect in the body are specific in their energy output and color wavelength.

Cold Lasers are applied precisely per a narrow “therapeutic” or “healing” window, advanced technology and focused training by the provider. These lasers need to be low level (around 5 mW) and need to be in the 635 nm wavelength (the red color). Lasers outside of this range or color will not have the same healing effect.
This level of light is painless and does not create heat or discernible reactions by the body.
The healing effect of the laser is in its ability to stimulate the body cells to increase more energy (thereby increasing healing) and to increase the cells’ ability to communicate. Cells that communicate more effectively are better at handling body stress.
Cold Laser Therapy is now being used to treat a myriad of conditions, including:
Cold Laser Therapy (LLLT) can quickly and dramatically reduce acute and chronic pain
- Reducing inflammation
- Reducing free radical production and oxidative stress
- Improving blood flow
- Enhancing tissue repair
- Improving cellular energy production (increasing production of cellular ATP).
We offer personalized treatment programs that include Chiropractic and LLLT options, for a treatment plan designed to provide you with maximum results.
The Best Kept Secret of the Medical Profession
Light energy for healing is not a new concept. This treatment has been around for over 20 years, although the Medical Community has only recently adopted the widespread use of LLLT therapies.
Western Medicine has always focused on the treatments taught in schools and commonly used by Practitioners and is slow to adopt modalities that fall outside the surgical and pharmaceutical treatment realm. Healing is less often a priority over immediate relief or the “quick fix.”
Light therapy invokes a healing response at the cellular level. This response encourages your body to “heal itself,” more efficiently and rapidly. Think of it as focusing healing energy on the areas that need it most.
FACT: Chronic Pain affects an estimated 20% of Americans.
FACT: Opiod addiction is at epidemic levels.
Most patients do not know that about the safe options to surgery and medications that are available. Addressing, and healing, the cause of pain, helps you to avoid the constant cycle of temporary pain relief and suffering.

There are many biological processes that take place in tissues that have been shown to respond to LLLT in the 630-640 nanometer wavelength range. One of these processes is the enhancement of ATP production in the mitochondria, which provides more energy substrate for cellular healing and tissue recovery post injury. This wavelength has also been shown to decrease inflammatory mediators in wounds and increase endogenous endorphin release. ~ Healed by the Light By Jeffrey M. Nelson, MD and Karen P. Nelson, MA
About Our Low Level Laser Applications
We use low level lasers or “cold lasers” to stimulate and upregulate the tone and balance of muscles. The goal of the adjustment is to re-align the bones of the spine. Muscles around corrected joints can remain tight or contracted. Muscle memory will work at undoing the work of the adjustment, left untreated.
Many patients benefit by Cold Laser Therapy after even the first visit. Subsequent visits provide additional benefits.
Your initial consultation will include tests that will help you to decide if LLLT will benefit your condition and recovery. Throughout your treatment period, we will monitor your progress and help you to gain the maximum benefits of your Laser & Chiropractic Center of the Rockies program!
