If you are suffering with an injury or chronic condition, cold laser therapy may be a treatment option to explore. This form of chiropractic treatment involves the application of low levels of light to treat conditions at or underneath the surface of the skin. The laser used in this treatment is low intensity, but can penetrate deep within the body. However, it does not heat body tissue. At Trinity Chiropractic, we offer exceptional quality cold laser therapy for our patients using the Erchonia FX 405 deep tissue therapeutic laser.
The benefits provided by cold laser therapy include:
Fast Pain Relief
Cold laser therapy works to block the pain receptors in the brain which can result is fast pain relief. After the first treatment, many people notice a significant decrease in their pain. And this is accomplished with the use of drugs and their potential hazardous side effects.
As the chiropractor focuses the laser one the injured area of the body, it penetrates the skin and the tissue absorbs the wavelengths of light energy. The result is the regeneration of cells in the body. These cells promote the process of healing. Cold laser therapy reduces the production of scar tissue resulting from burns, scratches, surgery, or other cuts. It also facilitates the reabsorption of fibrotic tissues, which brings about faster healing.
