Painful injuries and chronic pain conditions can happen to anyone, and when they happen to you, all you can think about is getting the relief you need. But sometimes the "cure" can seem worse than the disease, especially in today's world of invasive, costly surgical procedures and potentially addictive opioid painkillers. Fortunately, there's a much simpler, safer, and more elegant way to get results: by harnessing the power of amplified light. Here at Chiropractic & Wellness Center, our chiropractor in Indianapolis can administer cold laser therapy to improve your quality of life.
The Healing Power of Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy is only "cold" when compared to the high-frequency energy used in surgical lasers. Those more powerful lasers need to cut, excise and seal tissues. By contrast, a cold laser is designed to pass its beam directly through the outer layer of tissues to the structures underneath.
The frequency range of the cold laser beam offers some amazingly beneficial effects. For one thing, it can stimulate blood flow and increase circulation at the treatment site, helping the body deliver healing nutrients to the area and allowing for easier removal of fluid and inflammatory substances. The cold laser energy also sets off a process in cell components known as photobiomodulation. This gives the cells more of the essential fuel they need to repair and reproduce themselves, accelerating the healing process.
Part of Your Drug-Free Care from Our Chiropractor in Indianapolis
Our chiropractor, Dr. Johnson, may prescribe cold laser therapy as a valuable support to other treatment methods such as chiropractic adjustment and massage therapy. Its ability to ease pain, reduce inflammation, and speed healing makes it useful for the treatment of problems such as acute injuries, fractures, nerve damage, arthritis, chronic muscle strain, tendinitis, and ligament sprains.
Cold laser therapy is completely painless, creating only a mildly warming sensation. This drug-free means of controlling chronic pain won't cause addiction or interact with other medications, and it's safe enough to use as frequently as needed. While you may notice near-immediate relief from your first cold laser therapy appointment, multiple sessions will usually provide the best long-term results. A typical cold laser session may take only a matter of minutes, making it a relatively easy form of care to add to your busy schedule.
