How Cold Laser Therapy Can Help with Your Pain
If you get chiropractic adjustments regularly, you could be offered a chance to try cold laser therapy. Your first thought is probably along the lines of not wanting lasers anywhere near your body. While it may sound a bit intimidating, it can actually help with a lot of conditions.
What is Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold laser therapy uses such a low level of light that it doesn’t even heat your body’s tissue. It’s also the reason why it’s called cold laser therapy.
The way the treatment works is that someone runs the laser over your body to treat pains. For example, if the muscles in your back are sore after an adjustment, the chiropractor can run the laser over your back to reduce inflammation.
It doesn’t hurt, and you shouldn’t feel anything happening.
What Can it Treat?
Cold laser therapy helps with tissue repair and reduces overall inflammation. More specific injuries that this type of treatment can help with are:
- Muscle strains
- Tennis elbow
- Ligament sprains
- Knee pain
- Lower back pain
- Neck pain bursitis
- Muscle spasms
Using this form of treatment will not only reduce your pain but decrease the amount of time it takes for you to heal.
