A Non-Invasive Treatment Option for Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care is an effective way to treat a wide range of conditions, including back pain, neck pain, and headaches. One treatment option that many chiropractors use is laser therapy. In this blog post, we'll explore what laser therapy is, how it works, and the benefits of using it in chiropractic care. What is Laser Therapy?Laser therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses low-level lasers to stimulate healing in the body. It works by delivering light energy to the cells, which stimulates the production of ATP, a molecule that provides energy to the cells. This increased energy can help to promote healing, reduce inflammation, and relieve pain. How Does Laser Therapy Work in Chiropractic Care?During a laser therapy session, the chiropractor will use a handheld device to apply the low-level laser to the affected area. The light energy is absorbed by the cells, which triggers a series of chemical reactions that promote healing and reduce inflammation. Laser therapy can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including:● Back pain - Laser therapy can be used to reduce inflammation and relieve pain in the back muscles and joints.● Neck pain - Laser therapy can help to relieve muscle tension and reduce inflammation in the neck, improving range of motion and reducing pain.● Headaches - Laser therapy can help to reduce tension in the muscles of the neck and shoulders, which can be a major source of headaches.● Arthritis - Laser therapy can help to reduce inflammation in the joints, which can improve mobility and reduce pain.● Soft tissue injuries - Laser therapy can be used to promote healing in soft tissue injuries, such as sprains and strains. What are the Benefits of Using Laser Therapy in Chiropractic Care?There are many benefits to using laser therapy in chiropractic care, including:● Non-invasive - Laser therapy is a non-invasive treatment option that does not require surgery or medication.● Safe - Laser therapy is a safe treatment option that has few side effects.● Effective - Laser therapy has been shown to be an effective treatment option for a variety of conditions.● Quick - Laser therapy sessions are typically quick, lasting between 5 and 30 minutes depending on the condition being treated.● Cost-effective - Compared to other treatments, laser therapy is often more cost-effective and may be covered by insurance.
