If you are like most people, you may think of cold laser therapy in the same way one would think of the lasers that are used in an operating room. Cold laser therapy is a type of treatment that is used in chiropractor’s offices all over the country. Cold laser therapy has been around for well over 20 years, used to successfully treat various health issues. At Anken Family Chirocare in Rome, NY, Dr. Mark uses this therapy to treat lower back pain, shoulder pain, and thoracic back pain.
Cold Laser Therapy Is Effective and Safe
Cold laser therapy involves the use of lasers that disperse low levels of heat. This non-invasive therapy can be used to treat superficial and deep muscle tissues in patients of all ages. Cold laser therapy is non-invasive and painless, providing fast relief for a variety of injuries. Cold laser therapy has become the go-to treatment for professional athletes in the National Football League, National Basketball Association, and Major League Baseball. Cold laser therapy is also used by amateur athletes to provide pain relief, repair tissue, and reduce swelling.
Thorough and Compassionate Care
As with any type of treatment, cold laser therapy should only be applied after a patient has been assessed and the proper diagnosis has been made. Our chiropractor takes a complete medical history and performs an exam on each patient. We will perform a physical to examine the systems of your body, and x-rays may be taken as a part of the overall assessment. Once the x-rays are reviewed, along with the medical history and physical, Dr. Mark will decide on the use of cold laser therapy and the duration of the treatments.
It should be noted that cold laser therapy provides safe and effective pain relief for a variety of other health conditions besides back pain. Some of the other conditions that are often treated with cold laser therapy include:
- Ligament sprains
- Arthritic pain
- Knee pain
- Muscle spasms
- Herniated discs
- Migraines and headaches
