Are you looking for answers about cold laser therapy in Orinda CA? Our team at Orinda Chiropractic & Laser Center can help you today!


Cold laser therapy utilizes a low-level laser of compressed “cold” light from the red section of the light spectrum. High-power medical lasers are used to cut through tissue, but low-level lasers are used to direct light for the purpose of healing and repairing damaged tissue.

A cold laser looks something like a flashlight. During treatment the therapist will point the cold laser over the source of the problem for 4-10 minutes, depending on the body part being treated. Normally, we recommend coming in 2-3 times per week for laser therapy so the effectiveness of the laser can build up with each successive treatment.

Dr. Kevin has been in practice for over 26 years performing Chiropractic adjustments on the extremities and the spine.

Over 2500 research reports on cold laser therapy have been published. Of these, more than 90% verify the clinical effectiveness of laser therapy and its value as a treatment.

No side effects have been reported in the clinical trials or current clinical literature on cold laser therapy.

Low-level lasers aren't experimental tools, they've been used successfully in the medical field for over 30 years and the FDA defines then as a "non-significant" risk.

Cold laser therapy has been found to improve the condition of injured soft tissue (muscles, tendons and ligaments) and relieve both acute and chronic pain. It's helpful for treating many chronic-pain conditions such as arthritis, back pain, tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome and fibromyalgia. Other positive effects of cold laser therapy include:

  • Boosts the immune system
  • Develops collagen
  • Helps rebuild muscle tissue
  • Generates healthy new cells
  • Increases the speed of tissue repair
  • Increased blood supply
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Speeds wound healing and promotes clot formation
  • Stimulates nerve functions

The number of treatments required for each patient's specific
problem depends on their injury and can be determined after a thorough assessment by Dr. Kevin . There is no set amount, though an FDA study recommends 15 sessions. Our prepaid laser package is for 7 visits and is the most popular option. Laser visits can also be a la carte with each visit costing $60.

No, cold laser treatments are non-invasive and drug-free. Our chiropractor may recommend cold-laser as part of a multi-approach treatment plan along with some of our other chiropractic services, or it may be suggested as a stand-alone therapy.

Each laser treatment is $60 if done one by one. Treatment prices depend on many factors such as how many treatments are recommended and what other services you're receiving.

Dr. Kevin also has a take home laser which can be rented for
$400 for 7 days. The patient performs 14 visits total, 2 per day at 5 minutes per treatment. This is a wonderful option for patients who can not get in for laser therapy 2-3 times per week.
