At Atlas Chiropractic, we are dedicated to providing our patients with the most advanced and effective treatments to enhance their well-being. Laser therapy is one such cutting-edge modality we offer, designed to promote healing, alleviate pain, and accelerate recovery.
What is Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy, also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT) or cold laser therapy, is a non-invasive treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to stimulate cellular activity and promote healing. This therapeutic approach is gentle, painless, and produces no heat, making it a safe and comfortable option for patients of all ages.
How Does Laser Therapy Work?
During a laser therapy session, our skilled chiropractors will target the affected area with a handheld device emitting the therapeutic laser light. The light energy penetrates deep into the tissues, stimulating cellular function and promoting a cascade of beneficial effects. These include increased circulation, reduced inflammation, accelerated tissue repair, and enhanced pain relief.
What are the Benefits?
Laser therapy has shown remarkable efficacy in reducing both acute and chronic pain. By triggering the release of endorphins, natural pain-relieving chemicals, it can provide rapid relief from discomfort caused by various conditions, including musculoskeletal injuries, arthritis, neuropathy, and more.
By stimulating cellular activity and promoting the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), laser therapy accelerates the healing process. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals recovering from surgeries, sports injuries, sprains, strains, and other soft tissue injuries.
Inflammation is a common source of pain and discomfort. Laser therapy effectively reduces inflammation by increasing blood flow to the affected area and promoting lymphatic drainage. This can aid in the resolution of swelling, redness, and discomfort associated with inflammatory conditions.
By reducing pain, inflammation, and muscle tension, laser therapy can significantly enhance joint mobility and flexibility. This is particularly beneficial for individuals with conditions like arthritis or those recovering from musculoskeletal injuries.
Laser therapy is a non-invasive treatment option that produces no heat, making it safe and comfortable for patients. It does not require any medication or surgery, and there are no known side effects associated with this therapy.
