Cold Laser Therapy and Its Role In Chiropractic Care

Among the many advancements in technology sits a gem that many chiropractors, like Dr. Londer at Londer Family Chiropractic Center in King of Prussia, PA, are proud to provide for their patients. It’s called cold laser therapy. Learn more about this technique, how it can benefit you, and why chiropractors offer it in the quick guide below.

How Does Cold Laser Therapy Work?

Cold laser therapy is provided through a handheld device. It sends low levels of laser light into the injured or troubled area. The cells in that area absorb the light, which triggers a natural healing response. This response kickstarts cellular repair and improves the flow of blood to the area, which results in:

  • Reduction in pain
  • Decrease in inflammation
  • Increased range of motion
  • Muscle relaxation
  • Faster healing

In addition to these benefits, cold laser or low-level laser therapy provides another advantage. It is able to penetrate injuries buried deeply in the tissues – injuries that most other techniques cannot reach. It can loosen scar tissue and painful trigger points that might not be treated otherwise.

What Is Cold Laser Therapy Used to Treat?

Cold laser is combined with various other techniques to treat a wide range of symptoms and conditions. These include but are not limited to:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic neck pain
  • Chronic back pain
  • Inflammation and swelling
  • Sprains and strains
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Knee pain
  • Hip pain
  • Bursitis
  • Elbow pain
  • Arthritis
  • Tendonitis

The treatment provides natural relief from such symptoms. And as it can get to the root of the issue, it is very effective in providing lasting relief.

What Are the Benefits of Combining Cold Laser Treatment With Other Chiropractic Techniques?

While cold laser is a very effective form of treatment, it is best when combined with other techniques for lasting healing. Most injuries affect both the hard and soft tissues of the musculoskeletal system. Healing requires that both hard and soft tissues be addressed.

For example, imagine dealing with chronic back pain due to a misalignment. That misalignment puts undue strain on the muscles, which builds into tension and potentially scar tissue. Cold laser treatment can treat the tension and scar tissue, but adjustments are still necessary to correct the misalignment.
