Cold Laser Therapy in East Brunswick: Corrective Care Group, PC
Laser Therapy, or “photobiomodulation”, is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to draw water, oxygen and nutrients to the damaged area. Applying light in this way creates a variety of therapeutic effects for patients including improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling. Laser Therapy has been widely utilized in Europe by physical therapists, nurses and doctors as far back as the 1970s. After FDA clearance in 2002, Laser Therapy is now being used extensively in the United States.
Cold laser therapy applies infrared light to stimulate cells and aid in the healing process. This helps to reduce inflammation, increase healing times and alleviate pain. The laser is placed directly over the injured area for 30 seconds to several minutes dependent upon the severity of the injury. During this time, the light that is emitted from the laser passes through the skins layers and reaches the target area.
When cells absorb the light energy, it initiates a series of events that eventually result in normalizing the damaged nerves or tissue as well as reducing the pain and inflammation. This accelerates the overall healing process.

At Corrective Care Group, PC, our chiropractors and physical therapists frequently combine Laser Therapy with other therapies, including chiropractic adjustments and physical therapy as part of a broad-based, integrated treatment plan. We know from years of experience that a combination of approaches and technologies can often be more effective than one when it comes to relieving pain and improving function for our patients.
Cold Laser Therapy Treatment Process
During the typical treatment (3 to 9 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated), there is usually little or no sensation. From time-to-time, a patient may feel mild, soothing warmth or tingling. Areas of pain or inflammation may also be sensitive briefly before pain reduction. This is one of the laser’s most attractive advantages – during more than twenty years of use by healthcare providers all over the world, researchers, healthcare providers and patients alike have reported dramatic results with very few side effects.
