cold laser therapy for pain

Question to anybody who's used cold laser treatment- did you have any adverse effects? And what type of laser did your doctor use?

Thanks for the link Razzle,
I've been getting cold laser from my chiro- (it's the only way he will treat me)
For the sake of self-education I'll try to compare this one with the one he uses. ie:
Things have just gone a little haywire so I wanted to see if anybody else knew anything about complications with this treatment or not. It sounds like it's all pretty safe.
Thanks again. prism

Hi Prism, the laser that they used on me looked like the one on Roz's link. I only felt a little tingling when they did it but not always. It seemed like I got some relief from it such as the stiffness in my elbow being better and that contributed to pain relief.

It did seem to stop working after maybe 2 weeks. Now that could be the placebo affect wearing off. I always go into these new treatments with alot of hope that this will be the one. So usually I do get relief but so far with all it has been short lived.

Now massage therapy was great but I can't afford to go like I want. Man I wish I could get insurance to pay for it. Then Iwould be a happy camper...Sue
