Cold Laser Therapy at Brechbill Chiropractic
Lasers have been helping society in a number of ways ever since amplified light was first put to use, including the use of lasers in surgery. There's another form of medical laser that can elicit profound benefits for your physical function and quality of life. It's called cold laser therapy, and we're proud to make this service available at Brechbill Chiropractic in Canton.
How Cold Laser Therapy Works
Cold laser therapy is also referred to as low-level laser therapy (LLLT). It's "cold" in the sense that it operates at a much lower frequency than other lasers used for surgery. Because of this lower frequency range, a cold laser can penetrate the skin without cutting or burning it. Beneath the skin, the energy from the laser causes cells to produce more of the fuel they need to repair themselves. This effect can greatly aid the healing process in injured or damaged tissue. The laser also imparts a warming effect that increases circulation in the tissues, reducing inflammation and relieving pain.
A Safe and Effective Treatment for Many Conditions
Our Canton chiropractor may prescribe cold laser therapy as part of a larger multi-modal treatment plan alongside chiropractic adjustment, massage therapy, and other treatments. This form of therapy is typically recommended for acute soft tissue injuries as well as chronic strain conditions like arthritis, muscle knots, and swelling. It can even stimulate the growth of nerve tissue, making it a valuable treatment for neuropathy and nerve damage.
