Yeah man. I tried searching for more conclusive studies before I started it, but couldn't find anything. My chiro was very honest when he told me that the results were inconclusive, and that he uses this tool in a hit-and-miss (since some of his patients report positively to the therapy, but not others.) That is, he only keeps using on a patient only if he/she reports an improvement after the second or third session.
For all we know, the same same contraption that worked on my wrist may fail if applied to an injury in my shoulder blade. It's a hit and miss, a tool in its embryonic state.
Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
I asked my chiropractor about it today, he didn't seem to like cold laser therapy. XD Oh well, I suppose from what studies have shown, it is inconclusive -- and when your traditional method works good enough anyways, what's the point? Heh.
Anyways, thank you for your help anyhow. I might look into cold laser therapy sometime further in the future when more studies have been done on it.
