Cold Laser Therapy works by utilizing advanced high-power laser technology with a specific intensity and frequency that has shown to stimulate human tissue with photons that damaged cells can absorb. This provides them energy to heal. Additionally, laser has been shown to reduce inflammation, decrease nerve sensitivity as well as increase circulation. often producing dramatic reductions of pain. Many patients note dramatic improvement in range of motion.
As is true of many alternative therapies, you may receive multiple benefits when being treated - in addition to what you wanted fixed in the first place. This is because the ATP being produced is "systemic", meaning although we're focusing the laser on a particular area, the ATP is ultimately being sent throughout your entire body. The list of symptoms responding to LLLT is growing and more research is being performed on a daily basis.
Just like the purpose of an adjustment is to help reestablish connection from the spine to the organs and muscles, Cold Laser therapy is tool to further help "turn on" this vital connection. The TerraQuant Laser is set at very specific wavelengths, frequency, and power that our human cells ideally respond to. It is like a safe natural prescription that increases the energy production and efficiency of the cells. Many of our laser therapy sessions involve stimulating both the cells of the affected injured or painful area and the corresponding "nerve root" or area where the nerve exits the spinal cord. By stimulating both areas at the same time, we are enhancing the nervous system's communication "super highway." Other major applications involve using specific reflex points that have been discovered through much clinical practice that have a positive impact on the affected area of your body. Life is energy. If we can get the energy flowing throughout your body in an efficient, unobstructed manner than we have the best ability to have optimal health and human performance.
Throughout the course of your care, the doctors may determine if Cold Laser Therapy will enhance your Corrective Chiropractic Program. If they feel you are a candidate, they may offer you a trial session, evaluate your response, and determine an appropriate treatment plan. This therapy will be incorporated into your regular adjustment schedule.
There are over 2000 published studies and not one of them mentions any negative side effects of semi-conductor diode lasers at the 5mW range. Cold Lasers are safe, non-toxic and non-invasive. There are some necessary common sense precautions that need to be considered, such as avoiding pointing the laser beam directly into the eye and maintaining it there, which could prove to be damaging to the eye. Because cold lasers are non-heat producing, there is no pain or abnormal sensation produced with the therapy!
Treatments can vary in time from seconds to minutes depending on the condition. Research studies show that there may be a dose dependent response, so it may be more effective to treat at lower doses at multiple intervals then to treat a single time with a high dose.
A series of treatments are often necessary to begin the healing process, although in some cases, relief can begin immediately. Maximum treatment would be 1x per day per area, minimum would be 1x per week to still see results. Multiple areas of complaint may be treated. This treatment cycle may need to be repeated, and eventually spread out
