If you’ve suffered an injury or have chronic pain, your Summerville chiropractor may recommend a few sessions of a natural healing modality known as Cold laser therapy. While it may be a mouthful to say and actually sounds kind of scary, laser therapy in Summerville is 100 percent pain-free and non-invasive. If you’re looking for a proven method that can help you heal faster and get pain relief without using prescription drugs, come and talk to us at Swain Family Chiropractic, so we can get you the treatment you need.
Also referred to as Apollo cold laser, LLLT uses specific wavelengths of non-thermal photons of light that penetrate the skin’s layers to help treat even deeply embedded injuries. Your therapist uses a small, handheld device and gently applies carefully measure doses of light energy to the injured site or sites. This can last anywhere from 30 seconds to a few minutes depending on the depth and severity of your injury. Laser therapy is a cost-effective solution that can treat a variety of conditions.
Pain treatment is our most common use of cold laser therapy. However, it has been medically proven to benefit more than just bodily pain. This healing tool is also effectively utilized to treat:
Cold laser therapy can treat many types of wounds and can even assist with conditions that require lymphatic draining to avert pain from damaged tissues and illnesses associated with the lymph nodes. This treatment has also been shown to help patients suffering from migraine headaches and heel spurs.
After a comprehensive examination, your Summerville chiropractor may determine that low laser light therapy is right for you. These passive treatments do not cause any pain or burning, and most patients only report feeling a mild tingling in the affected nerve pathways during laser therapy. According to studies, 75-80 percent of patients experience immediate relief following treatment. However, it can take a few sessions to see the benefits when treating certain complex conditions.
If you’re experiencing acute or chronic pain or one of the conditions listed above, don’t delay getting the help you need.
