Recovering from spinal problems like sciatica, neck pain or a herniated disc is easier when you get proper chiropractic care. Your chiropractor may suggest low-level laser therapy as a way to speed healing and get you feeling better in less time than ever before. This cold laser therapy offers many advantages to traditional treatments.
Your chiropractor can treat your low back pain without invasive surgery or even injections using low-level laser therapy. The clinician uses a cold laser about the size of a flashlight to ease soreness and relieve discomfort.
No Medication Needed
When you receive cold laser therapy, the laser does the work that medications have done in the past. Unlike medications, lasers don’t make you feel groggy or impair your ability to drive. With this treatment, you can also avoid the serious and often long-term side effects that medications can cause. And, if you have both lower back pain and pregnancy at the same time, chiropractic treatments that avoid medication are always preferable.
Relieves a Variety of Skeletal and Spinal Problems
In addition to back and neck pain, cold laser therapy can relieve pain and speed recovery for problems as diverse as TMJ, pinched nerves, and herniated discs.
Can Be Used In Conjunction with Other Techniques
Skilled chiropractors use all of the means necessary and available to relieve pain and help you heal. Painful soft tissue injuries can be treated with the Active Release Technique. Neck, extremity and lower back pain can be treated with the Cox Technique. Chiropractors also use the activator method to treat spinal problems. Then, when the adjustment is completed, a cold laser therapy session can further reduce pain, help you relax, and improve your recovery.
