Pain management relief with cold laser

I am not a clinician of any sort But I have been so pleased for myself I want to share. I am in US and not familiar with what is or is not approved across the globe.

I have a person who regularly does massages for me and they are wonderful. She also does cold laser therapy with her own laser. I am always interested inno drug treatments so after some research I tried it.

She followed an RA protocol for me. It took some time and then!!! I have experienced less pain and less intense pIn since. This and myassages are not covered by insurance ce but I lucky enough to be able to afford it.

Once the initial weeks was over I just get periodic "tune up."

Hello Multijo

I have never heard of this therapy but if it works for you that is brilliant.

I am guessing I have never heard of it could be because it is not universally used in our healthcare system.

I would be interested in anyone has tried this in the uK, the results and if it was done privately.

Hi Multijo

I sincerely hope that you are feeling as well as you possibly can be today? I am so truly delighted to read that this is having a positive effect for you, and I sincerely hope that it continues in this way. I have watched an interesting documentary on this and seen it in action. I have pasted an excerpt below from the *Cold Laser Website about what they use to treat with this. It is available on the NHS in the UK at certain hospitals and was featured in an episode of 24 hours in A&E the other week:

*Cold Laser therapy offers a non-intrusive option to acupuncture and surgery. It also provides a non-addicting treatment that eliminates the complications of long-term drug treatment programs. Cold lasers are FDA cleared and widely use for treatment of:


Acute and chronic pain

Ligament sprains

Muscle strain

Soft tissue injuries



Tennis elbow

Back pain


Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

The equipment can be purchased by anyone but I would have thought to use it safely yourself you would need to undergo extensive training? I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck and please take care of yourself my friend.

All my hopes and dreams for you



Just seen this post. we in Chester have been using triple infrared class IV K laser for FMS for about 3 years now with about a 70% success rate with long term relief of symptoms. We can not promise a cure but we have not come across anything better and have a lot of experience with this (much more powerful than cold laser) modality.

Its amazing to us that the news has not spread widely but we are quite busy as it is and prepared to get another laser or open up more centres when it does get around.
