Cold Laser Therapy
What Is It?
The MicroLight 830 Cold Laser is a painless, non-invasive, drug-free treatment used to treat a variety of pain syndromes, injuries, wounds, neurological conditions and many other conditions. It has been used to treat a number of Olympic, professional and college athletes and is now available to you right here at Lower Bucks Total Health!
Cold Laser Therapy has been in medical use for over 30 years and has a long record of clinical studies demonstrating its medical efficacy and safety. Classified as a Class IIIb non-thermal laser (hence the name cold), it has demonstrated the ability to significantly accelerate and enhance the body's natural repair components in the presence of injury, inflammation and certain disease processes. It's treatment is covered by most insurances, Worker's Comp and Personal Injury Claims.
How Does It Work?
The ML830 works by stimulating light receptors in cells with the energy of the infrared laser photons that it produces. This reaction dramatically accelerates the natural healing process in damaged tissues and cells.
The ML830 is the world's first FDA cleared Class IIIb laser and has been cleared for use in the temporary relief of hand and wrist pain associated with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome as well as the the temporary relief of minor muscle and joint pain and muscle spasms associated with arthritis.
Do Laser Treatments Hurt?
No. For most people, Laser Therapy is quite passive. There are no pulsating shocks like electric stimulation or any heat used with ultrasound treatments. The most noticeable sensation is the touch of the probe of the head of the laser as it comes into contact with the skin.
What Are Its Benefits?

How Many Treatments Will I Need?
