laser therapy cork


At Douglas Chiropractic & Physiotherapy, we offer the most advanced cold laser therapies used in the industry. Cold laser is used to enhance tissue recovery, effectively accelerating injury healing time. Laser therapy promotes healing in many conditions affecting the joints and neurological systems, providing relief to both chronic and acute pain.

Cold laser therapy aims to photo-biostimulate chemically damaged cells via specific wavelengths of light.
When cells are chemically damaged they stimulate the pain cycle.
The laser excites the kinetic energy within cells by transmitting healing stimuli known as photons.

The skin absorbs these photons via a photo-chemical reaction, which unlike a photo-thermal reaction does not cause any heat damage to the tissues. It produces stimulative effects rather than destructive ones. Once photons reach the cells, they promote a cascade of cellular activities. Laser therapy light can ignite the production of enzymes, stimulate mitochondria, increase vasodilation and lymphatic drainage, ATP synthesis, and elevate collagen formation substances to prevent the formation of scar tissues. This is a critical step in reducing long-term disabling chronic myofascial pain syndromes. Other formative cells are also positively influenced and immune-enhancing effects are increased. Laser therapy enables patients to get rid of pain faster, providing long-term, natural healing.

There are over 8,000 Published Papers on
the Benefits of Laser Therapy, which include:


An energy molecule that is vital to the function of every cell in your body, powering essential biological processes.

Increased Production of Nitric Oxide

Which can help promote improved blood flow and blood vessel dilation, with positive impact on the immune system.

25-35% Faster RECOVERY

The difference in recovery time from accidents and physical injuries versus when laser therapy is not used.

Modulation of the Immune System

By promoting cellular repair and reducing inflammation, leading to enhanced healing and immune response.

Sports Performance Enhancement

Two studies from 2017 found that athletes who got treated with laser therapy had stronger muscles, increased muscular mass, better endurance, and could recover from games faster than other athletes.

Increased Production of Glutathione

This is a powerful antioxidant that helps decrease inflammation, neutralise free radicals, providing significant benefits to patients pre- and post- surgical operations.

Stimulation of Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor

Which stimulates new nerve growth and connections to help with concussions, neurodegeneration, and cognitive enhancement.

Stimulation of the Repair of Muscles, Bones, nerves

There have even been studies showing laser stimulating the repair of thyroid tissue.


Cold laser therapy offers numerous benefits to a wide range of conditions. It is non-toxic, safe, and virtually free of contra-indications. It's a non-invasive procedure, easy to apply, and it causes absolutely no pain, ensuring patient comfort during treatment. Furthermore, it's been proven to be a highly-effective treatment solution (with a record of over 90% efficacy), standing as a superior alternative to analgesics and NSAIDs, and can significantly reduce the need for surgery, enhancing patient outcomes without the associated risks of more invasive procedures.


Laser therapy offers a spectrum of benefits that accelerate healing. It promotes rapid cell growth by stimulating cellular reproduction, enhances wound healing by speeding up collagen synthesis, and boosts metabolic activity by increasing enzyme production and ATP synthesis. Additionally, it prevents excessive scar tissue formation, reduces inflammation in joints, and enhances vascular activity by temporarily widening blood vessels to improve circulation to damaged areas. It can also stimulate nerve function, facilitating faster recovery and restoring sensation in damaged tissues.

Cold laser therapy is highly effective in treating a diverse range of conditions that cause pain and discomfort. Arthritis sufferers benefit from laser therapy’s ability to alleviate joint stiffness and inflammation, improving mobility and reducing pain levels. Back pain, whether from herniated discs or muscle strain, responds well to laser treatment, which targets deep tissues to accelerate healing and ease discomfort. Bursitis, characterised by joint inflammation, sees reduced swelling and pain with laser therapy’s anti-inflammatory effects. Carpal tunnel syndrome, caused by nerve compression, benefits from laser treatment’s ability to promote nerve regeneration and reduce inflammation along the affected pathway. Additionally, conditions like fibromyalgia, ligament sprains, muscle strains, soft tissue injuries, tendonitis, and tennis elbow all show improved healing and pain reduction, making laser therapy a versatile option for an extremely wide range of musculoskeletal and inflammatory issues.

How Quickly Will I See Results?

We expect results on the FIRST VISIT!

This does not mean 100% resolution, as that is not realistic. Depending on the injury or condition, our goal is to get you to reduce your pain and improve your function by between 15% and 30-40% on your first session. We then have you go try your activities of daily life or sports and set you up to come back in to check your progress. Our goal is to get you better as quickly as possible!

The whole practice is fantastic and accommodating. Receptionists are extremely kind and helpful. The benefits were phenomenal!
