If you are suffering from chronic or acute pain, you have several treatment options. For those who prefer to avoid dangerous and addictive pain killers and invasive procedures, cold laser therapy is a safe and highly effective alternative. At Natural Way Chiropractic, our Overland Park chiropractors are proud to offer cold laser therapy in Overland Park and the surrounding areas.
What Is Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold laser therapy is a therapeutic technique in which a laser is used to stimulate healing on both superficial and extremely deep levels. During treatment, the laser is positioned directly above the injured area for a span of time ranging from 30 seconds to several minutes. The exact length of time varies depending upon the size of the area being treated.
During treatment, non-thermal beams of light are emitted from the laser. These photons of light pass through all the layers of the skin, including the dermis, epidermis and subcutaneous tissue, and they have the ability to penetrate up to 5 centimeters below the surface of the skin.
How it Works
Once the light passes through all the layers of the skin and reaches that target area, it is absorbed by light-sensitive elements within the cell. This triggers a series of events in the cell that eventually lead to the normalization and repair of damaged tissue. As the tissues are repaired, patients experience a reduction in inflammation and pain. The use of cold laser therapy also promotes faster healing by increasing metabolism within the cells.
What Conditions Are Treated Using Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold laser therapy can be used to treat both superficial injuries and pain originating deep below the surface of the skin. Conditions commonly treated using cold laser therapy include:
•Carpal tunnel syndrome
