Cold Laser Therapy

Cold Laser Therapy is the use of low-level light to promote healing of skin and tissue. It is called Cold Laser because temperatures never reach a level where they get hot. It is highly effective in the promotion of healing soft tissue injuries.

Genesis Chiropractic offers Cold Laser Therapy as a means of healing and reducing pain. It is also used in lieu of acupuncture needles as it has proven effective on the same points that are treated with needles. When used in this manner, it is especially effective for patients who would benefit from acupuncture but cannot tolerate the needles.

Dr. Tiffani Fries recommends Cold Laser Therapy for chronic pain patients as well as patients who suffer from inflammatory conditions. This amazing treatment only takes a few minutes a few times a week to bring you the relief you need.
