How Can I Effectively Treat My Pain?

Cold laser therapy performed in your chiropractor’s office is a safe and effective treatment for several types of pain. Using a small, handheld device, low level laser energy penetrates deep into the tissue. The laser’s light works by stimulating the damaged cells, which promotes blood flow and tissue repair. It decreases swelling and pain.

Benefits of laser chiropractic treatment include immediate pain relief, lack of side effects, quicker healing, and painless treatment. Depending on the condition causing your pain, you may need anywhere from 2-10 sessions to fully treat your condition. Those with long-term health conditions such as arthritis or fibromyalgia may need occasional ongoing treatment to manage pain and swelling effectively.

Laser therapy uses no heat and is not painful. Many patients feel nothing when receiving the treatment, while others feel a tingling or warming sensation due to the increased blood flow. Laser therapy can be used along with other therapies including massage, physical therapy, diet changes, and gentle realignment in the body. This can more fully promote healing and pain relief.
