Cold Laser Therapy (light) or Low-Level Laser (LLLT)
is a rapidly growing technology used to improve many neuro-musculoskeletal conditions that require enhanced or stimulation of healing. The safe and effective laser light treatments help relieve pain, inflammation, and restore function. It is the only physical medicine modality that also helps regeneration healthy tissue. Laser is non-invasive, safe, and effective. Low level laser therapy is approved by the FDA.
During laser treatment, the light stimulates human cells to produce increased production of ATP, a compound needed for repair of cells. This enhanced amount of ATP results in increased metabolism of each cell and faster healing. Laser therapy also allows muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and bones to repair themselves faster than the use of drugs, injections, or surgery.
Relief of pain and inflammation
During laser treatments, the light energy increases the flow of blood at the treatment area. As a result, the target tissue eliminates inflammatory substances. This increased circulation also decreases selling in the tissues. Clinical research shows that Cold laser therapy and Chiropractic adjustments are more effective together and enhance the healing benefits of both.
