Many of the patients seen by our Orlando chiropractor frequently ask questions about cold laser therapy, an innovative treatment for a number of conditions. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions and their answers.
Cold laser therapy uses the energy of light to reduce pain, promote healing, and decrease inflammation. This non-invasive, drug-free therapy is an ideal complement to standard chiropractic care for the relief of acute and chronic pain.
Our chiropractor uses a handheld device to provide cold laser therapy. The device is about the size of a flashlight. It emits non-thermal pulses of specific wavelengths of light, which penetrate 2 to 5 centimeters below the surface of your skin, where light-sensitive cells absorb the light energy. Absorption of this energy causes changes within the “powerhouse” of the cells, known as the mitochondria.
Stimulation of the light-sensitive cells increases production of the cells’ energy source within the mitochondria. Stimulation also increases metabolism within the cells, which allows cells to make better use of energy, reduces pain and inflammation, boosts cell growth, improves the body’s synthesis of proteins and growth factors essential for healing, and enhances blood flow to hasten the healing of damaged cells.
In addition to stimulating light-sensitive cells, cold laser therapy also stimulates other types of cells near the surface of the skin, including muscle, nerve and connective tissue cells.
Because it uses a low-intensity laser, the cold laser therapy used by our Chiropractor in Celebration does not heat up, burn, or cut through body tissue. It is a painless procedure that sometimes causes warmth or tingling that stops after your treatment is done.
This state-of-the-art treatment is a safe and effective therapy for a number of conditions, including:
Depending on the condition being treated, cold laser therapy takes 15 to 45 minutes.
Most patients benefit from repeated treatments. Our chiropractor will help you determine the number of treatments you will need to gain optimal benefit from cold laser therapy.
While cold laser therapy is safe and effective, pregnant women should not undergo cold laser therapy over their womb during the first trimester of pregnancy.
