Cold Laser Therapy at Complete Chiropractic & Rehab Center LLC
Do you suffer from chronic joint, nerve, or soft tissue pain? Have you recently experienced an acute injury that left you in serious need of healing? Modern medical technology continues to offer amazing treatment techniques to aid these kinds of conditions without the use of surgery or drugs. Cold laser therapy is one of these advanced methods --and one we're proud to offer here at Complete Chiropractic & Rehab Center LLC in Oconomowoc WI.
What Is Cold Laser Therapy?
When you think of medical lasers, do you think of beams that act like scalpels, cutting tissue with pinpoint accuracy? That image is a correct one, but cold laser therapy (also called low-level laser therapy or LLLT) is something entirely different. A cold laser doesn't cut the skin or damage tissue at all. Instead, the relatively low frequency range of this laser lets it pass completely through the skin to a depth of several centimeters without any harm or discomfort.
Uses and Benefits
The most amazing effects of a cold laser occur below the skin. The energy of the beam activates cell mitochondria, causing them to create more of a "fuel" called ATP. The cells then use the ATP to repair themselves more quickly and completely, helping you heal faster. The laser also stimulates blood flow, helping the tissues take in more oxygen and nutrients while expelling more inflammatory waste products. This "double threat" action makes cold laser therapy valuable both for pain treatment and for healing/rehabilitation purposes.
Conditions We Can Treat With Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy is an extremely versatile tool, and a valuable complement to our array of non-invasive healing techniques here at Complete Chiropractic & Rehab Center LLC. We may prescribe it alongside chiropractic care, massage, electrical muscle stimulation, and other therapies as part of your holistic injury rehabilitation or pain treatment program. cold laser therapy can prove helpful in treating:
- Sprain or strain injuries
- Nerve pain and nerve damage
- Arthritis and other degenerative joint problems
- Neck or back pain
- Muscle spasms
A series of regular cold laser therapy sessions usually produces the best results. The treatment is safe enough to be used as an alternative to drugs for chronic pain management. (Our chiropractor will tell you if you're one of the few individuals who should avoid it.)
