Cold Laser Therapy by Your Chiropractor in Beverly Hills and Spring Hills, FL
Cold Laser Therapy uses wavelengths of light to help stimulate the healing process. It aids healing by interacting with tissue with low levels of light. It’s called “cold” laser therapy because these levels of light won’t heat your body’s tissue. Our chiropractor at Chaney Chiropractic Clinic uses cold laser therapy to treat many common conditions, such as neck, back, and knee pain, muscle strains, ligament sprains, arthritis, and carpal tunnel syndrome. Read on to learn more about cold laser therapy.
Is Cold Laser Therapy Safe?
Absolutely. The FDA has approved the use of cold laser therapy devices and dozens of scientific studies have proven its success. It is an effective treatment for numerous conditions, including some that do not respond well to more traditional methods.
How Does Cold Laser Therapy Work?
Cold lasers are handheld devices about the size of a flashlight. We will place the laser directly over the affected area for 30 seconds to several minutes, depending on the size and severity of the injury. The healing process is accelerated by delivering energy and therapeutic light into damaged cells. The process is painless.
How Does Cold Laser Therapy Help the Healing Process?
Cold laser therapy gives photons of light the ability to reach tissues deep below the skin's surface. Damaged cells then benefit from the energy and therapeutic light. It is comparable to photosynthesis in plants, which uses light to generate growth. In this case, the light is used to promote healing.
Is Cold Laser Therapy Painful?
No! Because the lasers don’t produce heat, no burning sensation, or even warmth is felt. Some patients report feeling a tingling sensation because of the increased blood flow to the affected area.
