Cold Laser Therapy with our Hiram Chiropractor
When a debilitating soft tissue injury or chronic pain condition makes you all but unable to enjoy your daily life, you may get to the point where you'd even consider a lifetime of drugs or a major surgical procedure to alleviate your suffering. But the chiropractors here at Cornerstone Chiropractic have a safe, non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical alternative for you. We're proud to offer an advanced technique called cold laser therapy to our patients in Hiram GA.
The Healing Power of Laser Energy
What is a cold laser, and how can it make you feel better? "Cold laser" is a nickname for low-level laser therapy, or LLLT. The term differentiates from a surgical laser, which uses high frequencies of amplified light as an ultra-precise surgical cutting tool. A cold laser uses a lower frequency of amplified light. This laser beam doesn't cut or burn the skin at all; instead, it passes right through it to a depth of up to several centimeters. There, the laser energy stimulates cell components called mitochondria to produce more of a substance called ATP. ATP is a vital raw material that gives cells the energy to repair themselves. By triggering ATP production, the cold laser helps damaged tissues heal more quickly and completely.
Cold laser energy also relieves pain. The beam enhances circulation, helping excess fluid, inflammatory substances, and other waste products exit ailing tissues. This effect makes it a potent option for long-term pain management in inflammatory conditions.
How Our Chiropractors Use Cold Laser Therapy
Our chiropractors at Cornerstone Chiropractic may prescribe cold laser therapy either by itself or in conjunction with other conservative healing services such as massage or chiropractic adjustment. You may find it especially beneficial for conditions such as tendinitis, back pain, knee pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, plantar fasciitis and chronic pain syndromes such as fibromyalgia. All you have to do is relax while the healing laser does its work, which may take only a matter of minutes.
While multiple or recurring sessions may be necessary to get the full effect, the sheer safety and convenience of the procedure makes it easy to use as frequently as you like. This is especially valuable for individuals who are already taking other medications and don't want to risk adding heavy painkillers to the mix.
