Is anybody experimented with Light Cold Laser Therapy? Apparently it is FDA appproved and is used for treatment and pain relating to inflammation,pinched nerves, herniated discs,etc..., and also for acupunture.

Any insight to this topic is greatly appreciated. :H

  • Look out Google here I come!
  • but not sure of the effectiveness. Isn't this the same thing that is done for painful, arthritic knees?

  • I woould be interested maybe. What is it? Does it work? I am ready to try anything for some relief! If anyone knows please tell.
  • It offers the same type of benefits of acupunture. They basically work on the same concept. So no I wonder since it's FDA approved would my insurance company pay for it because they definitely will not pay for acupuncture.
  • My physical therapist uses cold laser therapy on me. I had ACDF 3 level surgery in Sept and have a lot of problems with my right shoulder after. When I go to PT first they have me lay on cold packs (neck and shoulder) and then she uses the laser on my shoulder and then she works with my shoulder and neck. After that I go in the gym and do light exercises and before leaving they put stim and ice on me (I think the stim is similar to a tens unit).
    The combination of all of this works well and my insurance is paying for my PT so I guess they pay for laser or the PT office would have said something. HOpe this helps,

  • Hey Tonya42,

    I am going to try the Light/Cold Laser Therapy. I will find out if it accepts insurance and let you know.
  • Thanks LJ for the insight.
  • Hi Cherish22,

    I am scheduling an appointment within the next few weeks to determine if this type of therapy actually works. I will post my findings later.
  • Hi Kimmeam,

    I will post my results once I go and determine if it is any different from accupuncture.
