Cold Laser Therapy, also known as low-level laser therapy, is a non-surgical treatment in which non-thermal light photons are applied, passing through the skin layers to the tissue of the affected area to treat and accelerate the healing process. The procedure helps with relief from pain, inflammation, and muscle spasms, and it improves the range of movement.
Since cold laser therapy stimulates the cells, it can help with many conditions such as arthritis, tendonitis, carpal tunnel, back, neck, and joint pain as well as fibromyalgia.
Cold Laser Therapy is a safe procedure that requires no medications or incisions. There are no major side effects, pain, or recovery time. At Southside Chiropractic & Car Accident Injury Clinic, we use a high-powered 30-watt class IV laser that is much more effective than the low-watt lasers that other practices here in Jacksonville use.

Laser Therapy is a painless, drug-free treatment that uses a laser beam to help stimulate injured areas of the body to help activate cells to allow for more efficient and quicker healing of injured tissues. A painless laser beam is applied to your skin and the laser travels deep into the cells to help with healing. Scientific research has shown positive physiological effects of infrared wavelengths on cellular tissues that will help with pain relief for acute and chronic pain conditions. We know some may still have questions about how cold laser therapy works. So, we’ve provided this helpful F.A.Q. box answering commonly asked questions about cold laser therapy.
Laser therapy can help by providing positive pain relief without using drugs. This helps with quick treatment times to heal injured tissues. Laser therapy is effective in treating acute and chronic pain symptoms, as well as new injuries. Laser therapy helps by stimulating cells to improve the healing process, control pain, improve circulation, reduce muscle tension, reduce stiffness, and improve blood flow. Many conditions show signs of improvement after just a few treatments.
Depending on your specific condition, treatment times for laser therapy take somewhere between 5-10 minutes on average to complete. We use one of the best cold lasers on the market so we can effectively treat your pain or condition in quicker and more accurate fashion.
Most patients notice a warm, often soothing feeling. There is no pain associated with cold laser treatment. Laser therapy is a non-invasive treatment option that is painless and effective. Patients can feel an immediate change in symptoms and may experience slight warming sensation for a small amount of time after treatment.
Depending on your condition, most patients are able to resume normal daily activity after leaving the clinic. At times, however, it is suggested that the patient take some time to allow for the tissues to heal properly if the injury is new and acute. If the condition is a chronic condition, most patients can resume normal daily activity.
Laser therapy may not be covered by insurance plans. If insurance does not cover the cost of treatments, there are affordable payment plans available. Check with your insurance company to see if laser therapy is covered under your plan.
In addition to spinal decompression and cold laser therapy, we also include a specific, personalized physical rehabilitation program that is designed to help relieve your pain symptoms. Physical Rehabilitation includes customized exercises and a vibration plate that will help strengthen and stabilise your spinal muscles to achieve long term results and prevent future pain symptoms. These exercises are simple and done within our office and can be performed in regular clothing.
