The following is a select list of testimonials from professionals, customers and patients that have experienced the benefits of laser therapy. In general, it is hard to get unscripted testimonials that do not make any claims that would go beyond the FDA cleared claims but express the incredible success that is possible with PBMT devices. Lasers are FDA cleared for pain control, inflammation and for increasing blood flow, any other claims made in the follow testimonials are not valid.


You can see many more testimonial here: laser-therapy.us/research and click on the testimonials link. Here you see before and after videos of dogs treated with laser therapy where there is no possibility of a placebo effect. This collection include studies, videos and books about laser therapy. This site can also be used to review the scientific research about the use of cold lasers and PBMT.

Everyone was amazed, including my doctor, at how quickly I recovered. Also, we have used the laser on a all kinds of horse ailments and the results have been remarkable. - Tiffany owns 2 Avant LZ30z lasers 4/8/18

I couldnā??t walk last week due to my arthritis but I was back on my feet in a couple of days with the help of the Avant without pain meds so thatā??s really good. - Prab 4/10/18

In 13 years as a chiro I have yet to come across any healing devise that has worked so well. My father after a lifetime of low back pain told me last Easter that this is the first time he can remember being pain free. My mother had a large curve in her upper back from a whiplash as a child plus 3 degenerative discs in her low back with disc bulges. She is now pain free and has straightened out the curve in her upper back to lower neck. She also said she has gained about an inch and a half of height back. Not sure if its from the curve straightening or in combination with healing the flatten discs. For someone in there upper 60s this is very impressive. I am sure you hear this all the time but thought i would share anyway. Thank you for your great work. - Dr. Trent Habstritt , San Diego, CA

I have been using a cold laser for 10 years throughout my career as a physical therapist. I have used a few different brands and when it came time to invest in my own, hands down, the Avant-LZ30x has been the most reliable, easy to use, and produced the best outcomes for my patients both human and canine. Coldlasers.org provides great customer service and answers questions thoroughly. I am very happy with purchase and would hands down recommend Coldlasers.org! - Erin Downey, PT, DPT, CCRT

The Avant laser is amazing. We definitely made the right choice for man and beast. I think I'm seeing results for the neuropathy in my legs. It's done wonders for my lower back and neck as well as my dog... - Kyle R, 2018


Ted Marriott, D.C

"I really like the Cold laser therapy as a natural adjunct for my practice. It is so affordable when you compare it to similar cold laser programs out there. This therapy is right in alignment with what chiropractic is all about which is healing the body from the inside out. I feel it gives healthcare doctors another vehicle to boost the body's natural healing ability. It's like a deep breath of fresh air for those stagnant areas of the body that are slow to respond otherwise. It compliments our adjustments we give to our patients since it stimulates cellular healing. Photon light energy is natural and very powerful. Just look how photon energy effects plants! I think it's a great addition to any practice. I love the target technology the MR4 has which shows me exactly where to treat and how long to treat an area. I have been using this for 3 weeks now and see amazing results not only for my patients but with myself. My arthitic right hip is 80% less painful and it was a moderate to severe problem for over 2 years. I'm not even done with the suggested course of therapy and I've gotten 80% improvement! That's Huge!"

"Since adding the (TerraQuant) laser to our practice two years ago, our effectiveness in treating both chronic and acute musculoskeletal pain syndromes has most definitely increased. It has been very complementary to the spinal/extremity adjusting and low tech rehab techniques that we routinely employ. Many referrals that we get are primarily for laser treatment, csp. Plantar fascitis, knee pain, shoulder pain and carpal tunnel syndrome."

Bruce H. Dohner, D.C.


Chip   Weisel, D.C

The LaserStim's ability to not only help identify the area to treat, but also the dose required is truly an advantage. Having used other laser devices, I find this laser gets better results, is much easier to use, and is insurance reimbursable.

The TerraQuant Laser machine is an intrical part of our everyday treatment plans. This simple procedure offers the patient tremendous results in a relatively short amount of time. A patient suffering from Bells Palsy experienced a full recovery within a 8-week period with a treatment plan of 3x week 10 minutes each treatment. The TerraQuant Laser offered our patient a completely painless and non-invasive treatment option instead of a surgical procedure. This advanced technology has allowed us to fine tune our treatment plans with outstanding results

I have found MR4 Super Pulsed Laser to be very reliable, stable and user friendly. It has many enhanced features over older versions that make it very versatile. The MR4 has more frequencies and a variety of sweep frequencies which appear to have enhanced clinical effects. It is a joy to have it as part of my therapeutic armamentarium.

Dr. William J. Kneebone, CNC, DIHom, FIAMA, DIACT


Our clinic has been using the TerraQuant laser since 8/07, and in my opinion has had dramatic results. I have used it for a variety of conditions, from back and neck muscular dysfunction, to shoulder, hip, and knee tendonitis/strains and post surgical conditions. I have also used it for some of my fibromyalgia patients, with good result. It is an adjunct to other physical therapy interventions, and has maximized clinical outcomes. The TerraQuant has greatly benfited my patients overall.

I feel compelled to write and thank you for all your help during my purchase of the LZ30Z. As you know I purchased my laser a few months ago and it was one of the most important items I have bought in a very long time, if not in my entire life. When I first bought this from you there was a wait of about two weeks. I expressed how nervous I was waiting all that time as I wanted to treat our senior dog for arthritis and nerve problems in his rear legs. Simply put I wasn't sure he would last those two weeks. Well you graciously forwarded us a demo unit immediately. You also requested we send it back to you after we received our new unit. I used the demo unit on our boy and he responded unbelievably. He was able to walk and get around so much better than before his treatment. Needless to say my wife and I still treat him with the laser approximately two to three times a week.

He is still here and doing fairly well considering his condition was so dire prior to his treatments. In addition both my wife and myself treat ourselves for our own arthritis conditions as well as carpal tunnel syndrome.
The laser is amazing and has dramatically improved a chronic back condition, which is now approximately 75% better. I also had carpal tunnel syndrome and was starting to plan for a operation in an effort to improve it. After my first laser treatment I knew I was on to something, as that condition also improved by approximately 50%. I continue to treat my hand and elbow (your training site said to also treat the elbow for carpal tunnel). That problem has also improved significantly with additional treatment.
I could go on and on about the benefits of your laser system but I will end this note by saying that should you ever need an independent person to speak to any of your potential customers and explain my experience with your company and laser system please do not hesitate to give any of my phone numbers out. I again thank you for all your help. Your laser and company are class acts.
Sincerely,

Thomas DeSousa


I am a sports chiropractor in private practice in Beaverton, Oregon. Although my practice is mainly centered on injury and posture care, I periodically see other types of patients. I have had two diabetic patients who both had amputations that would not heal, seek my treatment.

The first one was a man in his late 60's with an above the knee amputation. For one year, he had a portion of the amputation that would not heal. He went to the local university wound clinic for multiple visits and various treatments including antibiotics, debridement and so on. The part of his leg that wouldn't heal was about 2cm in diameter and about 7cm deep. The day to day significance of this wound was that it wept fluid constantly and was painful. As a consequence, he was constantly changing the dressing on it and also had marked pain when wearing his prosthetic leg. Not surprisingly, within one week of starting laser therapy with the TerraQuant, the wound started to make noticeable improvement as he found the dressing changes became less and less. In addition, he was able to wear his prosthesis for longer periods of time until he could wear it all day without pain. In 30 days, we were able to completely heal the wound that had been present for 1 year. Interestingly, he started treatment with me exactly one year after the amputation and couldn't be happier.

As a side note, I would have thought his wound doctor would be interested in the laser therapy but sadly, he had no interest in it.

The second case was also a diabetic patient in her early 60's with a great toe amputation. For over 6 months, she too had a wound at the amputation site that would not heal and the discussion was to do more surgery. Her wound was not as dramatic and more like 2.5 cm by 2cm with not much depth to it. She too noted a change in the wound within the first week of starting laser therapy. This particular lady is still under my care and after 30 days, she has experienced a 90% improvement of non-healing wound.

I give all credit to the TerraQuant Laser ....

I have been practicing for 20 years and have always kept up with the latest technology when it comes to treating my patients. The TerraQuant Laser is the most scientific and effective modality that has come along since Therapeutic Ulstrasound. The ability to use the equipment and its safety factors is by far the best. We have used it effectively for all musculoskeletal conditions for both acute and chronic conditions. It has increased our patient referrals significantly.

Douglas Johnson, ATC, EES, CLS

Over the past four years, I have worked extensively with many laser technologies as both a clinician and an educator. In my opinion, the TerraQuant is by far one of the most advanced technologies available on the market today. The unique combination of optimal power, wavelength and frequency is ideal for biostimulation in injured tissues. Not only does it help me to return my athletes to play faster after an injury, it manages my clinical patient's pain in a way that is superior to other modalities. Now more than ever, clinicians need to explore the benefits of light therapy and realize the difference phototherapy can make in their outcomes.

TerraQuant is the best physical therapy tool since the McKenzie method! As a physical therapist I'm interested in scientifically based modalities that are not only good on paper but in outcomes. I have had great success treating all types of musculoskeletal disorders from post operative swelling to chronic tendonitis using the TerraQuant laser system. With patients having less swelling and pain I can perform manual therapy and therapeutic exercises earlier in their rehabilitation and better meet our functional goals.

Dr.   Remi Guibert MD MSC

Age 84- this patient had sustained a fractured coccyx several years before and remained very sore.

She could not sit straight and not for long. Traveling by car was limited to a few kilometers because of the pain. Analgesics NSAID and acupuncture had had no effects.

The treatment consisted of 12 sessions of TerraQuant (15 minutes at 5Hz) over a four weeks period. After six treatments, this patient was able to sit straight, albeit with bearable discomfort. After 12 treatments, she was pain free and could walk and travel by car without restriction.

I have been suffering with severe pain in my legs for years and nothing seemed to help. They did one session with the TerraQuant Laser by just slowly scanning over the joints. Once I got up, I was able to walk without any pain. I got excited to get that device for my use at home. I use TerraQuant on regular basis.

I have found the Terraquant Laser simple and easy to use. It has been very effective in the treatment of shoulder and elbow problems specifically in tennis elbow. It has also helped to resolve some stubborn sprained ankles. The TerraQuant is also a helpful adjunct for scar management especially in the hand. The TerraQuant laser system has proved a useful tool in our physiotherapy Practice.

Within a week I was experiencing results daily that I might have experienced monthly with the other laser brand. Don't let fancy marketing brainwash you in to believing you have to spend $14,000 to get the job done. If you are looking to step into the next millennium of healing, you need to experience TerraQuant

Dr. Aaron Russak, DC,
Owner-practitioner, Chattanooga, TN


I have ten laser or phototherapy devices in my offices. The TerraQuant is one of my favorites because of it's effectiveness, ease of use, broad safety margin, and reasonable price. I have had a number of patients purchase them for home use with their chronic painful conditions. One of the most unique effects of laser therapy is the quick relief it predictably provides. The TerraQuant provides that kind of relief. I think it bears serious consideration by the clinician investigating phototherapy and therapeutic laser.

Sincerely Yours in Health,

Dr. William J. Kneebone, DC, CNC, DIHom, FIAMA, DIACT,


I compete in national tennis competitions, so injury prevention and rapid recovery are important to me. I first used the TerraQuant to hasten recovery of muscle, ligament or tendon strains around my knee. Since prevention is preferable to rehabilitation, I use the TerraQuant when I initially feel weakness or sensitivity in a muscle or joint. As a result, injuries have been essentially nonexistent.

We have completed our studies of evaluation, initiated about a year ago, of the TerraQuant laser device with excellent results. We had the opportunity to obtain results in different modalities of treatments (acute and chronic pains). We would like to inform you that in all cases, after the initial treament, the results obtained and reported by the treated patients were very impressive.

I have been practicing Chiropractic for 7 years. My patients come from all areas of the work force and of all ages. My drive in the office is to get patients back to their normal activity pain free with minimal down time, especially athletes. Therefore, I strive to have the latest in technology and treatments available for my patients.

For several years I used the Microlight but the technology has not changed since it was developed. Multi Radiance is a progressive company looking for ways to help Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, and MDs, etc. to speed up recovery for our patients.

After several months of research and loaner units from several companies, I decided to upgrade my laser to the MR4 by Multi Radiance Medical. I use the MR4 base with a rectangular Laser Shower and LaserStim. The rectangular head is great for covering large areas and the LaserStim is a must, it makes this easy and fast. I always use both at the same time to decrease treatment times. This has been an excellent adjunct therapy to the Graston Technique that I use in my office.

TerraQuant is a very worthwhile machine. It promotes healing of wounds, tissue regeneration; it reduces the risk for cross infection and contamination between residents. It is not invasive. It does not generate pain when used. It reduces the cost of dressings. It has been well accepted by the staff. It is easily teachable. It follows the KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) principle. Often, you will hear one staff member go through the corridors asking, "who has kept the TerraQuant Laser machine for themselves?"

Arthritis pain in knee joints and hands.

I have been suffering from severe chronic pain in my knee joints which made bending my knees and going up and down the stairs excruciatingly painful. After ten days of daily TerraQuant treatment, using programs 1 and 2, 20 minutes each day on each knee, I feel a noticeable improvement. The pain has not disappeared, but I can now bend my knees and can walk up and down the stairs with greater ease. I also have arthritis in my hands, and as a hairdresser who shampoos women's hair every day, each time I wet my hands, I feel strong pain. After using TerraQuant on my hands for fifteen consecutive days, I can feel a noticeable reduction in pain. I continue to use TerraQuant every day or every other day both on my knees and on the arthritis in my hands. I thank my daughter every day for buying me TerraQuant as a present.

Ligament injuries.

The TerraQuant has been a God-send for both me and my athletes. Maybe because of age or lack of care, but a knee ligament injury became chronic. After 2 days and 6 sessions on the TerraQuant the scar tissue was reduced by 50% and the pain by 90%. Also, five young athletes have recovered from various twists, bruises, and growing pains after 1 to 3 days on the TerraQuant. Additionally, a parent is finally feeling relief from spinal fusion surgery using the TeraQuant for half a cycle. The TerraQuant is becoming as important to us as our post-training water workouts.

Wrist and burn.

I plug the machine in and find that it is actually a model of simplicity to operate. You choose one of five preset programs-each with different pulse frequencies-press the start button and apply the emitter (looks like a shower head) over the affected area. I used the programme for wrist pain, and I was pleased to detect a moderate increase in mobility and a reduction in pain. I also tried the programme to treat a small burn, and noticed that it quickly changed from an angry crimson to a faint blush. I'd definitely give it a qualified thumbs up.

Lower back pain, whiplash, shoulder pain.

Different people can react in different ways, but overall we have been most impressed with the results of all the tests and trials we have run.

Many professionals such as physiotherapists are already using this technology as an alternative to ultrasound. We tried it out on three people with different conditions. Here are their comments:

Jack, aged 50, lower back ache. I was willing to give anything a go as I have had backache on and off for 20 years. You feel like such a little machine can't actually do any good, but after two weeks using it for just 10 minutes a day I started to look forward to my sessions. It was warming and I felt more flexible afterwards. I would like to try it out for longer.

John, aged 46, whiplash. I was on the receiving end of a nasty tackle during a "friendly" Sunday morning rugby tackle. By the evening my neck was really aching and I was dreading what I would be like the next day. I applied the TerraQuant to one specific muscle which felt really stiff for ten minutes. The next morning I could barely feel anything. I am sure it helped warm and relax the muscle. It was almost like it helped release it from a spasm.

Steve aged 22, shoulder pain. I wrenched my shoulder at work while digging and shoveling wet earth. I am a fit guy and quite muscular, but I must have twisted myself while digging and it really hurt. I combined using the TerraQuant with applying icepacks. I used it twice a day for a week and the pain went away.

Fractures.

25-year-old male who sustained a mid-shaft fracture of the humerus on 20th July in Darwin while pitching a baseball. He was treated conservatively in Darwin. After 6 weeks he came to Melbourne and complained of pain around the upper arm and in the cubital fossa area. After investigating him for osteoporosis (neg.) he was started on low-level laser therapy and given exercises to increase strength around the elbow and shoulder. He showed good recovery after 14 days' treatment as regards, pain but returned 1 week later, requesting further treatment from which he derived significant improvement.

Bursitis.

73-year-old female with a painful left shoulder. Ultrasound of shoulder demonstrated bursitis and fluid around the biceps tendon. Pain worse at night. Limited range of movement. TerraQuant treatment was commenced daily for 6 days, with notable improvement in level of pain. She was virtually pain-free during the day, with diminishing night pain and increasing range of movement of the shoulder joint.

Dr. Remi Guibert, MD MSC.


Hip bursitis.

Age 72: This retired woman was suffering from left hip pain that reduced her ability to go for long walks and also prevented her from sleeping on her left side. Getting up from a chair or her sofa was painful. Palpation of the great trochanter was painful, and a left hip ultrasound confirmed bursitis. The treatment consisted of eight treatments of TerraQuant (5 minutes variable frequency and 5 minutes at 50 Hz) over a three-week period. At the end of the treatment, the patient was pain-free and could enjoy her walks again. There was no pain at palpation and no limited range of movement of her left hip.

From case studies by
Dr. Remi Guibert, MD MSC.


Shoulder bursitis.

Age 28: The injury occurred at work; while digging and shoveling heavy wet earthy clay, the shovel got stuck under a rock, and the patient exerted undue force to try to lift the rock, which did not move an inch. The patient is very muscular and exercises regularly (weight-lifting). The biceps tendon was painful and there was limited abduction at 60 degrees and very limited internal rotation and forward flexion. An ultrasound showed biceps tendon inflammation and partial tear. The treatment consisted of 4 sessions of TerraQuant (10 minutes @ 50Hz) with a prescription for NSAID and ice packs. He was assigned to light duties with a restriction on lifting no more than two kilos. The four sessions of TerraQuant were given over a 10-day period. At the end of the treatment, the patient was pain-free and there was no limitation of movement, and palpation was pain-free.

The treatment consisted of 4 sessions of TerraQuant (10 minutes at 1000Hz) over a ten-day period, with a prescription of Tramadol and Paracetamol 500mg and 30 mg of codeine. After the treatments, the pain had markedly diminished, and an NSAID was sufficient to control it. The skin lesion had almost disappeared.

Leg ulcers.

An amazing device. I have a diabetic ulcer in my leg that until recently did not show signs of healing. After just one course of TerraQuant treatment my ulcer is definitely showing signs of healing and is getting smaller.

Non-bacterial inflammation.

A patient suffering from severe pains in the penis, due to non-bacterial inflammation. All conventional treatments were ineffective. Following 3 treatments with the laser device, level of pain was reduced, and after an additional 6 treatments, pains practically disappeared.

Diabetes.

63-year-old insulin-dependent diabetic with severe degenerative disease of the right knee, waiting for knee replacement. Awaiting hospital admission, she received daily and alternate day treatment over 7-10 days on 2 occasions to buy time until surgery was carried out. Post-operatively, she was using an exercise bicycle during her rehabilitation, and developed muscle strain of the upper anterior compartment muscles. Also post-operatively, she developed a pressure ulcer on her other heel. Her anterior compartment strain improved daily with 5 treatments, and the moderately deep pressure ulcer which had been closing slowly showed rapid improvement from 1.5cms to 2mm in 7 days and was closed by the 12th day.

Superficial Thrombophlebitis.

Soft tissue injuries & musculoskeletal inflammation.

Pain management needs addressing from several ways - often more than tablets is required. I have used the TerraQuant device to successfully treat soft tissue injuries and other musculo-skeletal inflammatory disorders e.g. tennis elbow. It combines the power of three modalities to treat the conditions and yet at the same time its use remains easy enough for patients to use with excellent instructions. The TerraQuant is ideal unit to use in a General Practice setting, training requirements being kept to a minimum and yet the unit appears very safe to use.
