Cold Laser Therapy Q & A
What is Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold laser therapy is an innovative treatment that harnesses light energy to relieve pain and stimulate your body’s natural healing process.
This non-invasive treatment directs a cold beam of laser light over and through the injured or painful parts of your body, where it penetrates between 6-8 inches into your flesh. Your body then takes the light and converts it into a chemical called ATP which is essential to the body’s cellular repair process.
Cold laser therapy also reduces inflammation which helps to relieve discomfort.
Cold laser therapy helps your body to heal without creating scar tissue which can contribute to inflammation and mobility issues.
Most patients find cold laser therapy a relaxing and painless experience.
How Does Cold Laser Therapy Complement My Chiropractic Care?
Cold laser therapy is an excellent supplementary treatment during chiropractic care. While Dr. Gehnrich adjusts your spine to release subluxations and correct alignment issues, cold laser therapy helps to stimulate the healing process in the surrounding muscles.
Your spine may have gotten out of alignment as a result of soft tissue injury, or the spinal alignment problems may lead to the soft tissue injury. Either way, cold laser therapy helps your muscles heal while your spine is guided back into place. The combined therapy reduces the time it takes you to experience relief, while also preventing inflamed muscles from pulling your spine out of alignment again.
Cold laser therapy is also often combined with physiotherapy and exercises designed to strengthen the body and correct any postural issues that can lead to pain.
What Conditions Can Cold Laser Therapy Address?
Dr. Gehnrich uses cold laser therapy to address both chronic and acute pain in most parts of the body, including:
If you are experiencing any mobility issues or a loss of your range of motion, cold laser therapy may help your muscles to release and heal, restoring your ability to move with comfort.
Dr. Gehnrich has helped patients with osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease, joint pain, fibromyalgia, sciatica, herniated discs, spinal stenosis and more with cold laser therapy.
These treatments are also helpful for post-operative patients who are eager to get back to their normal active lives.
