Cold Laser Therapy at Morris Chiropractic
At Morris Chiropractic in Mission Viejo, CA, we believe in drug-free treatment of body pains and musculoskeletal disorders. Our chiropractor is highly trained in several methods of chiropractic care and has years of experience treating several conditions with cold laser therapy.
Cold laser therapy is an FDA approved treatment that uses low-level lasers to stimulate deep tissues and boost the body’s natural healing properties. The procedure is called “cold” laser therapy because the level of light produced by the laser is not high enough to burn or damage tissue – the lasers we use are significantly weaker than those that would be used to destroy tumors in cancer treatment.
How Does Cold Laser Therapy Work?
Low-level light is applied directly to the problem area. The body absorbs the light. This causes a cellular reaction in the laser-treated area. This cellular reaction causes a physiological response that boosts the body’s regenerative properties. Simply put, cold laser therapy kickstarts the body’s natural healing process.
Effectiveness of Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy is effective in treating many different conditions, including:
- Sports Injuries: Injuries are an unavoidable part of athletics. Cold laser therapy is an excellent supplement to chiropractic care for sports injuries. Cold laser therapy reduces pain and swelling in the injured area, allowing the athlete to rehab more effectively. The procedure also regenerates soft tissue in the injured area, reducing the risk of re-injury.
- Inflammation: Cold laser therapy is very effective in treating patients suffering from inflammation of different body parts. Whether the inflammation is caused by arthritis, infection, or injury, cold laser therapy is a useful tool in addressing it.
- Wound Healing: Some patients come in with wounds that do not seem to heal. Cold laser therapy has been very helpful to these patients, as it boosts the body’s healing properties and allows the wound to heal on its own.
- Skin Problems: Cold laser therapy is very effective in treating acne scars, psoriasis, dermatitis, burn scars, and other abnormalities of the skin. The same properties that help joints and tissue heal also apply to the surface of the skin.
