If you are suffering from recurring pain following a whiplash injury or frustrated by your body’s slow recovery, you may benefit from cold laser therapy as part of your whiplash treatment in Rockville Centre. Cold laser therapy is a powerful healing tool that has been used by elite athletes for more than a decade to heal faster after injury. Dr. Gehnrich is excited to offer this cutting-edge treatment to reduce pain and support your body’s natural healing process.
Whiplash injuries are typically caused by an identifiable trauma, like a car accident or sports injury. Common symptoms include neck soreness and stiffness, headaches at the base of the skull, blurry vision, dizziness and fatigue. Cold laser therapy helps the body heal faster after a whiplash injury and naturally manage pain symptoms, like neck pain and shoulder pain– reducing the need for over-the-counter medication or steroids.
How does cold laser therapy work?
Class IV cold laser therapy uses energy from light to stimulate internal healing and relieve pain following whiplash injuries. After an injury, the body needs cellular fuel, called “ATP” to heal. During cold laser treatment, the laser safely directs energy through the skin and to the injured cells. The cells are then able to harness this energy and convert it into more ATP, accelerating the healing process. The more ATP cells can produce, the faster they can repair cellular damage. In addition to speeding up the recovery process, this additional cellular fuel helps to reduce inflammation that is associated with scar tissue build up and pain.
Is cold laser therapy safe for whiplash pain relief?
Cold laser therapy is a safe, effective treatment that supports the body’s natural ability to heal itself. The treatment process itself is very gentle. Our patients often tell us how relaxing they find the warm, pleasant sensation that accompanies the laser treatment. A typical treatment session lasts only 15 to 30 minutes. For optimal results, Dr. Gehnrich recommends a series of sessions over four to six weeks, in conjunction with complementary chiropractic care.
How does cold laser therapy complement chiropractic care?
Cold laser therapy and chiropractic care are a natural partnership. Dr. Gehrnich is passionate about holistic health and whole body wellness. That is why he recommends cold laser therapy to his patients. Chiropractic adjustments focus on reducing nerve interference and supporting correct spinal alignment. Cold laser therapy complements this care by focusing directly on the injured soft tissues. By supporting the body’s recovery process, cold laser therapy helps to restore a fuller range of mobility following a whiplash injury. Most importantly, cold laser therapy unlocks your body’s innate potential to heal from within. Cold laser therapy is also supported by physiotherapy and gentle stretching exercises, helping to bring movement back to your neck after injury.
