Ft. Lauderdale Cold Laser Therapy Supports Pain Relief & Injury Recovery
Are you struggling with back pain, neck pain or another chronic pain condition that makes it difficult to perform daily activities? Are you worried this pain will stop you from living an active life or leave you dependent on pain medication? Cold laser therapy may be able to help. Cold Laser therapy is a safe, effective non-intrusive option to acupuncture and surgery. As a non-addicting treatment, it eliminates the complications of long-term drug treatment programs. Our Ft. Lauderdale chiropractor has had great success using Class 3 lasers to treat acute and chronic pain, as well as to support the body’s natural healing process following an injury.
Class 3 FDA Approved Lasers Help Patients Heal Faster After Injury
Class 3 lasers are FDA cleared and widely used for the treatment of acute and chronic pain, ligament sprains, muscle strain, soft tissue injuries, tendonitis, arthritis, tennis elbow, bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and fibromyalgia. Cold lasers offer numerous healing benefits, including speeding the injury recovery process. Cold laser therapy uses the energy from light to stimulate internal healing. During a treatment session, light from the laser will penetrate six to eight inches below the skin. Cells use this light to produce a special chemical “fuel” (known as ATP) to repair cellular damage that occurs during an injury. Laser therapy helps to reduce inflammation, minimize the formation of scar tissue, reduce chronic pain and speed the injury recovery process.
Cold laser therapy is a natural complement for chiropractic care. An injury may cause several health problems with your body, including a misalignment of the musculoskeletal system as well as soft tissue damage. Chiropractic adjustments bring correct alignment back to the musculoskeletal system, relieving nerve compression for drug-free pain relief. However, for some patients, adjustments alone may not be sufficient for relieving all pain. This is especially true for soft tissue injuries like knee pain or chronic pain conditions affecting the back and neck. Worse, after an injury, the body will naturally adjust its movements to protect injured tissues, which can then strain other tissues and hinder flexibility and coordination. This is where cold laser therapy can help. By helping injured cells heal, cold laser therapy can restore natural movement to the body and help patients heal faster.
Tissue inflammation is a major contributing factor for chronic pain. When the body’s tissues fail to properly heal due to excessive inflammation, scar tissue can form. Scar tissue can aggravate pain and hinder the body’s natural recovery process. By safely promoting internal healing, laser therapy helps to reduce the formation of scar tissue and speed the injury recovery process, enhancing whole body health from within.
You may be a good candidate for cold laser therapy if you are suffering from a chronic pain condition or soft tissue injury that has not responded to other non-invasive treatments. The healing and pain relief benefits of cold laser therapy are truly numerous and can make a major difference for your health. For more information, contact our Ft.
