The ML830 Cold laser is a handheld, non-invasive, low energy, therapeutic laser. The laser is a non-thermal laser capable of penetrating deep into the tissue. In human tissue the resulting photochemical reaction produces an increase in the cellular metabolism rate that expedites cell repair and the stimulation of the immune, lymphatic and vascular systems. The net result, observed in clinical trials to date, is the apparent reduction in pain, inflammation, edema and an overall reduction in healing time.
In our experience the ML830 has a multitude of uses. Perhaps the most appealing single factor about this unit is the possibility that it may help conditions where all previous therapies have failed.

Yes. The choice of where you receive therapy is always yours. While the majority of our patients come to us by physician referral/recommendation, many clients request to see us due to our strong clinical reputation in the community.
Yes. A physician referral is required by your health insurance plan for you to be seen by a licensed therapist. We also offer treatments, services and/or products that do NOT require a referral and are available on a self pay basis.
We participate in the majority of major health insurance plans including Medicare and Worker’s Compensation. Please contact us prior to your first visit to see if we participate with your specific health plan.
As a service to our patients, we will gladly file claims with your insurance company on your behalf. In order to appropriately submit these claims, we will need to obtain a copy of your insurance identification card to ensure that we have the necessary information.
Your therapist will conduct an evaluation of your condition lasting between 60-90 minutes. The evaluation is necessary to create a program designed specifically to address your needs for a maximum recovery.
– Referral slip from your medical doctor
– Your medical insurance card
– Your ID
– If you are getting therapy as a result of a worker’s compensation claim or an automobile accident, you will also need to bring your claim information, including claim number.
Please arrive 15 minutes early on your first visit to fill out any necessary paperwork.
We recommend comfortable clothing such as sweatpants or shorts, a T-shirt or tank-top and sneakers.
Each visit will last 60 – 90 minutes on average. Times vary due to the treatment and exercises being performed.
The regularity of your visits will be determined after your initial evaluation, but most patients have 3 visits each week scheduled.
“I am an orthopaedic surgeon and developed a compression neuropathy at my elbow that resulted in my hand becoming numb and weak, affecting my ability to do my work. This condition is typically treated with surgery to release the pressure on the nerve. I didn’t have the time required to go through the surgery because it would have resulted in a significant break in my work schedule and since I am self-employed, I don’t enjoy paid sick time. Bob Clair and his wonderful staff performed cold laser on my elbow which greatly reduced the swelling and inflammation on the nerve allowing my hand function to recover. This took only 5 sessions, but the results were dramatic with no loss in productivity. I am able to work now with minimal symptoms.”
“I am a 52 year old male and a former athlete.
I have been a patient of Clairs Physical Therapy since Dec 18th 2006 to rehab a surgically repaired torn Quadricep tendon on my right let. Amy has been working with me and has done an excellent job of keeping focused on getting better. During my 7th week I fell down a short flight of stairs and injured my knee again. Although it was very painful it did not do any additional damage to the surgery. What it did do was to force me to take a step back in the Rehab process because of the swelling and pain. It was at this time the “Cold Laser” was used. We had to wear some protective goggles but I never felt anything or saw any light. The treatment got me about 50% relief the first time and I had 3 follow up treatments to completely eliminate the swelling and pain.
If you have swelling and/or pain I would recommend the Cold Laser.”
“First, I want to thank you for your expertise and direction in my recent treatment for neck and shoulder spasms. This was my third time to be treated at Clair’s and I was used to the exercise program and the benefits of the ultrasonic that brings relief, but I was definitely surprised by the new Cold Laser. With one application I experienced a final release from the tension and muscle cramping that seemed to cycle again and again. I am very appreciative to receive the benefits of this new treatment and feel confident if needed I can depend on you to continue to see the possibilities for better treatments to combine with traditional modalities.
Thank you for helping me to find that relief.”
“I had a good experience here. The therapist and staff were professional, caring, and helpful. My therapist clearly explained how the process worked and what we were going to accomplish. Their system worked well and I experienced a great deal of improvement after an artificial disc surgery. I would recommend Clair for post operative therapy or any physical therapy in general.”
“They have helped a great deal with my shoulder recovery! Very friendly staff and great physical Therapy!”
“I cannot praise Bob Clair and his team of therapists enough. They helped my son a few years ago with a knee injury. I was so impressed with their professionalism as well as the confidence they gave him. His recovery is greatly due to their knowledge and care. I am now going for rehab myself and have found them to be nothing but top notch. They really listen and care about their patients. I am grateful to them for practical ideas for home exercises as well keeping me informed of my progress. They have made time for me when I have been in pain and their scheduling easily accommodates my work schedule. I have full confidence in this team and am thankful they are in my area.”
