Lasers are used in a wide variety of areas from reading bar codes to recording videos, from drilling to welding, and from surgery to non-invasive chiropractic treatments. The lasers used by chiropractors are low output and have low energy levels but still produce dramatic effects in the body. Laser biostimulation is the ability of low-level lasers to alter cell function in a constructive manner. Dr. Jess at the Cafe of Life in Longmont has been successfully using laser therapy as part of her chiropractic treatment to relieve the pain and inflammation caused by a wide variety of conditions in her patients.
4 Top Reasons for Laser Therapy
- Pain Relief– By decreasing the pressure caused by inflammation and by stimulating drainage of pain-causing chemicals through our lymph nodes, pain is significantly reduced.
- Anti-Inflammatory– The laser decreases blood pressure by dialating blood vessels in the affected area, and decreases swelling through boosting lymphatic drainage.
- Wound Healing– Laser therapy speeds up the recovery process by promoting the development of new collagen-producing cells and new blood vessels.
- Immune Support– Our immune system is strengthened with laser treatment because production of antibodies and lymphocytes is stimulated.
Laser therapy can be used as an effective treatment for a wide variety of conditions including (but not limited to): arthritis, back pain, bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, plantar fasciitis, temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ), and whiplash. A laser therapy session is painless and very short, typically only lasting around 4 minutes!
