At Core Wellness Centre in Toronto, we’re excited to introduce you to cold laser for pain relief – a cutting-edge treatment using low-level light therapy (LLLT) for pain relief.

Whether you’re recovering from a sports injury, managing chronic joint pain or seeking relief from tissue damage, cold laser therapy offers promising results.

Here we delve into the science behind cold laser therapy and its potential to ease pain and stimulate the body’s own natural healing processes.

Benefits of Cold Laser for Pain Toronto

What is Cold Laser Therapy?


Cold laser therapy, also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT) or photobiomodulation, is a non-invasive treatment that uses specific wavelengths of light to stimulate the cells in the body and promote healing.

Unlike surgical lasers that produce heat and are used for cutting or cauterizing tissue, cold lasers emit low levels of light that do not generate significant heat.

At Core Wellness Centre, we utilize state-of-the-art cold laser for pain relief to deliver targeted light energy to affected areas of the body.

This gentle yet powerful approach allows us to address a wide range of conditions without causing discomfort or tissue damage.

Common Conditions We Treat with Cold Laser Therapy

  • Sports injuries (sprains, strains, tendonitis)
  • Joint pain (arthritis, bursitis, osteoarthritis, knee pain)
  • Migraines and tension headaches
  • Soft tissue injuries (carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, scar tissue)
  • Back pain (herniated discs, shoulder pain)
  • Neck pain (whiplash, cervical spondylosis)
  • Tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow
  • TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders / Jaw Pain
  • Post-surgical pain and inflammation

How Does Cold Laser for Pain Work?

How does this innovative treatment actually work? Let’s break it down in simpler terms.

Imagine your body’s cells are like little engines, constantly working to keep you healthy and functioning properly.  Cold laser therapy applied to the area acts as a gentle boost of energy for these cells.

When we apply the cold laser to your skin, it sends out tiny particles of light called photons. These photons dive deep into your tissues, where they interact with your cells.

The photons act like a switch that turns on your cells’ engines, making them work more. This boost in energy production helps your cells do their job better, like repairing damaged tissues and reducing inflammation.

Cold laser for pain also has another neat trick up its sleeve—it helps to ease your pain, by basically telling your body’s pain signals to quiet down and releasing the body’s natural painkillers – endorphins.

Cold laser for pain is like giving your cells a little pep talk, encouraging them to work their magic and help you feel better. It’s a gentle, non-invasive way to promote healing and relieve pain, making it a great option for a variety of conditions.
