If you're suffering from chronic or acute pain, struggling to get over an injury or seeking an alternative to invasive surgery, cold laser therapy might be just what you need. This advanced treatment method relieves pain and inflammation, promotes healing and improves mobility, all with nothing more than a beam of amplified light -- and you can experience this therapeutic technique right here at Rhino Chiropractic & Holistic Wellness Center.
Unlike a surgical laser which cuts and cauterizes, a low-level or "cold" laser penetrates the skin harmlessly -- sometimes to a depth of 5 centimeters or more -- to perform its healing work on painful and injured tissues. Cold laser therapy:
Relieves acute and chronic pain - The cold laser boosts blood flow in the part of the body receiving the treatment. This imparts a comfortably warm, soothing sensation while relaxing muscles and helping pain-causing substances such as lactic acid exit the area. Our Rockville Centre chiropractor uses it to relieve neck, back and joint pain, as well as headaches and migraines.
Reduces swelling and inflammation - The increase in circulation created by cold laser therapy allows injured tissues to expel inflammatory substances and accumulated fluids that cause swelling. This makes it a great choice for treating plantar fasciitis, tendonitis, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome and other inflammatory conditions.
Improves range of motion - Cold laser therapy helps to minimize the development of adhesions (clumps of internal scar tissue that can limit your range of pain-free motion). It also helps increase flexibility in conditions such as spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, osteoarthritis and traumatic injury recovery.
Promotes faster tissue healing - The focused light energy of the cold laser beam signals cells to produce greater quantities of ATP, a critical "fuel" for cellular repair and maintenance. The extra ATP helps injured tissues heal that much more quickly in everything from skin conditions, cuts and burns to post-dental gum problems.
Helps you avoid surgery - Injuries such as torn rotator cuff, torn meniscus or herniated disc or damaged knee are often referred for surgery -- but a series of cold laser therapy sessions can help these injuries heal on their own.
Schedule Cold Laser Therapy from Our Rockville Centre Chiropractor
Cold laser therapy works beautifully alongside other natural, non-invasive treatment methods. Its ability to free up stiff joints and tissues, for instance, makes it a natural complement to chiropractic adjustment and physical therapy. Its ability to help injured tissue heal faster also makes it useful for conditions involving nerve damage such as neuropathy, even while chiropractic adjustment frees the pressure on those injured nerves.
