What Is Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold Laser Therapy is a treatment that uses specific light wavelengths to interact with damaged tissue and trigger a photochemical reaction. During the treatment, a laser is placed over an area of the body for short periods of time, allowing non-thermal light to pass through the skin. It's a safe and painless process and it can improve the body's ability to heal.
This is a non-invasive treatment that can usually be completed in as little as 20 minutes. While it may take multiple appointments to achieve your desired results, it's a simple and effective way to treat a range of ailments, including conditions that haven't responded to other forms of treatment.
Cold Laser Therapy has a range of applications and is used in the treatment of a variety of conditions. Some of the many issues that laser therapy is used for include:
- Chronic pain
- Soft tissue injuries
- Joint problems
- Ligament sprains
- Muscle spasms
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Frozen shoulder
- Plantar fasciitis
- Wound treatment
While laser therapy can be highly beneficial on its own, our chiropractor may also recommend combining this treatment with chiropractic care. The treatment can speed up wound healing, accelerate cellular reproduction, reduce swelling, and can even stimulate nerve function.
Cold Laser Therapy is especially effective at treating persistent joint and muscle pain, prior injuries that haven't properly healed, and helping you heal from a fresh wound. Although it's unlikely that you will see the full results of your treatment after your first visit, most patients experience some relief after their first procedure.
