Cold Laser Therapy

Cold Laser Therapy in Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is a field that focuses on helping the body heal itself by removing restrictions that are impeding the natural healing processes. Chiropractors like Dr. Boroditsky at Minnesota Chiropractic & Rehabilitation in Plymouth, MN, offer several techniques to make this happen – one of which is cold laser therapy. Also known as low level laser therapy, this technique can play a crucial role in relief.

What Is Cold Laser or Low Level Laser Therapy?

Cold laser or low level laser therapy (LLLT) is a treatment technique that utilizes the power of low-spectrum light. A handheld device is placed over the target treatment area, which then emits laser light that is able to penetrate the deep layers of tissue.

The cells in the tissues absorb this energy and release more ATP. This stimulates healing processes in areas that traditional methods cannot typically reach.

Is It Painful?

It might sound painful, but it’s not. The laser energy is called “cold” because it doesn’t significantly raise the body’s heat. You will likely notice tingling in the treatment area, though. This is normal and a sign that it’s working as blood is flowing to the area and tissues are repairing.

Will It Be Added to My Treatment Plan?

LLLT is a highly effective treatment technique used for various conditions, injuries, and symptoms. These include but are not limited to:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Arthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Elbow injuries
  • Bursitis
  • Shoulder injuries

Your chiropractor will assess your musculoskeletal system and determine whether LLLT can be beneficial for your needs.

What Can Be Gained By Adding This Technique to My Treatment?

LLLT allows for completely natural healing. It stimulates a process that helps improve blood flow, reduce inflammation, release muscle spasms, and eliminate sources of pain that lie deep beneath the surface.

Chiropractors often combine cold laser therapy with other treatment techniques to provide comprehensive healing by treating both the hard and soft tissues. It is also very effective in relieving chronic pain and pain from ongoing conditions, like fibromyalgia and arthritis. And it provides such relief without the need for invasive techniques or addictive substances.
