Cold laser therapy can help you rapidly reduce pain and inflammation and/or quickly strengthen healed tissues to prevent re-injury.
The ML830 microlight increases the speed of healing through a complex augmentation of your body’s normal inflammatory process. The non-thermal laser penetrates deep into your tissue promoting photobiostimulation. In essence, the cellular metabolism increases which in turn accelerates cell repair, increases blood flow, and stimulates the immune and lymphatic systems.
Photobiostimulation energizes cells and accelerates your body’s normal healing process. That’s not all; Low Level Cold Laser Therapy with the ML830 also improves collagen and muscle tissue development, and helps generate new healthy cells and tissue. Clinical studies to date have shown a reduction in pain, inflammation, edema and an overall faster healing time. Amazingly, the ML830 creates true healing instead of masking pain as in the case of ice, heat, medication, and electrical stimulation.
Up until now, other lasers were only able to penetrate half as deep into bodily tissues. The ML830, with its patented 830nm wavelength, is the only device capable of a penetration capacity of approximately 5cm with a 3cm lateral spread. This makes the ML830 the deepest penetrating treatment modality currently available allowing it to reach many more of your tendons, ligaments and muscle tissues.
ML830 Laser Is Safe, Painless and Noninvasive.
By now you are probably wondering exactly how safe ML830 Laser treatment is.
You’ll be glad to know the ML830 has been safely used around the world for over 30 years with great success. In fact, General Motors was part of the original ML830 Laser clinical studies, testing all employees at their Flint Michigan plant who suffered from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (this was a large group).
“GM found it to be 70 to 80 percent effective – nearly 80 percent of the people in the study went back to work, while the other 20 percent experienced some improvement.”
However, there’s more, the ML830 is the world’s first FDA approved “3-B Laser” after passing guidelines that include years of clinical studies and tests. The FDA has some of the highest standards in the world. Surprisingly enough, the Laser doesn’t generate heat and is approved to be used over metal implants and fractures making it safer than Ultrasound.
Laser therapy can be used when you want or need a drug free procedure to control pain, when conventional therapies have been ineffective, or when you want to quickly heal from injuries.
Treatment with the ML830 Laser is painless consisting of several brief sessions, lasting a couple of minutes to about five minutes per whole body part on average. Stated in another way, each area is treated with the laser for about 1.5 minutes. Roughly 3 to 4 areas make up a whole body part. You should not feel anything during treatment other than the ML830 Laser’s tip coming into contact with your skin. There is no pain, electrical pulses, or feeling of heat during treatment as is common with other therapies. Only a very small number of patients have ever reported feeling anything during therapy (about 3%). Of those, they only report feeling of slight warmth or slight stimulation of nerves, nothing discomforting at all.
You may be one of the 75 to 80% of patients who feel improvement immediately after (and sometimes during) treatment. Many people feel the effects immediately but for chronic conditions, especially if you’ve had them for a long time, it may take a few treatments.
Plus, treatment sessions are covered by all chiropractic plans and at the present time no additional fees are being charged for this modality when performed in conjunction with acupuncture or chiropractic visits.
Treatment with the MicroLight ML830® cold laser is designed to temporarily relieve pain associated with the following conditions: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Migraine headaches, tendinitis, bursitis, plantar fasciitis/heel spurs, tennis elbow, osteoarthritis, low back pain, sciatica, neck and shoulder pain, post-surgical pain (including total knee or hip replacements, spine surgeries, and rotator cuff repairs), TMJ, Fibromyalgia and more. The low-level laser therapy was first cleared by the FDA in 2002 for carpal tunnel syndrome treatment, based on research conducted at General Motors in 1995.
Some of the benefits of 830 Laser therapy are:
- Reduced Pain – Many people can experience significant improvement after one treatment. Most conditions require 3-10 treatments for maximal alleviation of symptoms. Chronic conditions may require more. Pain reduction is achieved by increasing the level of endorphins in human tissue, as well as normalizing the action potential of the involved nerves to -70mV (normal) from a hyper excitatory state.
- Less Inflammation and Faster Tissue Healing – Acute inflammatory conditions respond almost immediately to 830 Laser treatments. The patented wavelength of 830nm can penetrate 5cm (up to 2 inches) through human skin, water, blood and fat with minimal absorption. Below the skin (subcutaneous); this is what happens:
- The lymphatic system is stimulated to help remove waste products and cellular debris from the site of tissue impairment.
- NO (nitric oxide), histamine and serotonin production are stimulated to produce a non-thermal vasodilatory response, improving circulation in the injured tissues.
- Angiogenesis (creation of new capillaries) is promoted which increases the rate of healing as circulation is improved.
Avoiding re-injury to the treatment area is critical to promote proper healing and avoid the return of pain.
- Increased Tissue Strength – 830 Laser increases both collagen and fibroblast activity. Professional athletes are using this therapy to heal injuries faster. Laser treated tissues are stronger after recovery than with natural healing alone.
Treatments are tiered according to severity or acuity of condition. Your therapist will advise you accordingly. 830 Laser treatment is priced as follows: $25 for 2-15 minutes, $50 for 16-30 minutes. Some common conditions and treatment time frames to help you determine approximate cost are listed below. Remember, your condition may respond differently to these recommended parameters.

This revolutionary new treatment utilizes photons of light to augment the body’s natural healing abilities. This laser falls under the category of a “low level laser” and emits non-visible light that has no heating or cutting properties. Treatment is completely painless and provides true healing power. All light has some penetration properties but most wavelengths of light are absorbed by the outer layers of skin, creating heat and often damaging tissue (much like a bad sunburn). The ML830 Laser emits light at a wavelength of 830 nanometers, which is unique in allowing deep penetration without a thermal or heating effect. In fact, Microlight Corporation (the manufacturer) patented this particular wavelength because it provides the deepest penetration among all low level lasers. It was also the first cold laser approved by the FDA.
The ML830 Laser is a painless, noninvasive laser that has demonstrated significant benefits for patients around the world including:
- Reduces pain quickly
- Reduces inflammation
- Drug free
- Increasing the strength of healed tissue, making it less vulnerable to re-injury.
- Completely safe
- Used on a wide variety of ailments from muscle tears to migraines
- Increased flexibility
How Quickly Will I See Results?
Approximately 70%-80% of our patients see results immediately following the first treatment. Treatments usually last 6-15 minutes and most people will see excellent results after 6-12 sessions. Usually the more chronic or severe the condition the longer it will take to heal completely.
Be Wary of…
Clinics that are offering lasers other than the ML830 cold laser. Most of them are not FDA approved and are either too weak or could be dangerous.
The cost ranges from $25-$40 per treatment.
Don’t wait any longer. We’ve seen excellent results on both recent injuries and those that have dealt with chronic pain for 15 years!
What is Laser Light Therapy?
The ML830 is a non-invasive, drug-free treatment used for acute and chronic pain relief. It has been effective in treating a variety of muscle, joint, tendon and nerve pain related to injuries (shoulder, back, neck, knee), Bursitis/Tendonitis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Heel Spur/Plantar Fasciitis, Migraines, Fractures, Wounds, some Neurological conditions, and much more! Around the world, laser therapy is rapidly becoming a medical therapy that can heal wounds and fractures up to 60% faster, and also reduce the cost of treatment for many conditions.
How does Laser Light Heal?
A low level laser supplies energy to the body in the form of non-thermal photos of light (photons). When these photons penetrate deeply into the skin, they optimize the immune responses of our blood. This in turn promotes decreased inflammation, increased tissue and bone repair, stimulates nerve function, and promotes faster wound healing and clot formation. This produces a quicker healing process overall, and gets you back to your normal activities in much less time.
