Low-Level (Cold) Laser Therapy

 

Light in its various forms has been used for healing from the time of the ancient Egyptian and Greek civilizations. The negative effects of the absence of light on the human body are well documented (e.g., seasonal affective disorder, lack of vitamin D production, etc.). Therapy using LASER, an acronym for “light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation,” is based on the beneficial use of light for healing.  Recent advances in laser therapy devices and more research into the appropriate dosages have dramatically improved the results of this therapy.

Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) or cold laser therapy is a method of non-invasive treatment we offer at Bauman Chiropractic.  Cold Laser utilizes the properties of light to help the self healing ability of the body.  It uses a non-thermal photochemical light, therefore, the tissue is not disrupted.  Stimulating healing at the cellular level, cold laser, improves the communication between our cells and cellular metabolism.  Light at certain wavelengths has an effect on pain, tissue regeneration, and inflammation.  It’s purpose is to mend soft tissue injuries, treat wounds, and relieve pain.  It effectively works in alleviating acute and chronic pain as well.  In most cases, this natural method is more effective rather than medical solutions that simply mask the symptoms of pain.

Cold Laser therapy is a non-invasive treatment option for many types of pain including:
– Arthritis
– Tendonitis
– Low Back Pain
– Sciatica
– Headaches
– Neck Pain
– Herniated Discs

The laser is applied locally to the area requiring treatment. By sending quick burst of photon laser light on the skin, it blocks pain transmitted by nerve cells, consequently, reducing inflammation and controlling pain.  Stimulating tissue healing on the cellular level, where there are no sensory receptors, the patient will generally feel no sensation when applied.Cold laser therapy is very useful in assisting the body to release natural analgesic chemicals which include endorphins and encephalin.

Affordable, effective, and convenient, cold laser therapy is helping many manage their pain quickly and effectively.  If you are suffering from pain, it can interfere with work, play, and your general enjoyment of life. You need to be in excellent physical condition to succeed in every endeavor. Over-treatment isn’t possible, and an added benefit is that there is no recovery time so patients can simply read or relax during their session.  Cold laser therapy will enhance your daily productivity because it can quickly and easily give you the relief that no medicine could.
