Guide to Cold Laser Therapy in Chiropractic Care

Did you know that your body has processes that help it heal itself when injured? It sends blood and healing nutrients to the site and releases chemicals that naturally fight pain. Though these processes are amazing, they don’t always work perfectly, especially if something is blocking the flow of blood and nutrients in your soft tissues, joints, or other musculoskeletal components.

Dr. Cook at Cook Chiropractic Health and Wellness Center in Garland, TX, offers techniques that help remove restrictions, including cold laser therapy. Learn how this technique works and why it’s used in chiropractic care below.

How Does Laser Therapy Work?

Laser therapy utilizes a device to send low levels of light energy into the treatment site. This energy can penetrate several inches of soft tissues, allowing it to reach troubled areas that may not otherwise be accessible. The cells of the soft tissues absorb the light and alter cellular function, which helps reduce inflammation and break up restrictions that are impeding the natural healing processes.

Why Do Chiropractors Offer Laser Therapy?

You might think that chiropractors only treat issues with the bones, but they focus on the entire musculoskeletal system. Not only are the soft tissues often impacted by misalignment, but they can also affect bone placement and contribute to misalignments. Therefore, chiropractors aim to restore health to both the bones and soft tissues.

Laser therapy, thanks to its ability to penetrate deep layers of tissue and stimulate healing, has proven effective for many injuries, conditions, and symptoms. These include but are not limited to:

  • Muscle strains
  • Bursitis
  • Tendinitis
  • Joint pain
  • Back and neck pain
  • Arthritis
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Ligament sprains
  • Elbow, knee, and shoulder injuries
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Tendinitis

Your chiropractor will determine if laser therapy can benefit you after fully assessing your condition, symptoms, and unique needs.
