What is Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold laser therapy, also known as low-level laser therapy, is an innovative, safe, and painless treatment used to speed up the recovery of damaged tissues. It uses particular wavelengths of light to engage the tissues, significantly reducing recovery times and alleviating pain from acute and chronic injuries.
Active Care Chiropractic is proud to be one of the few offices offering cold laser therapy in the Wilmington area. During a treatment session, we use a hand-held device and place it directly over the affected area. The light passes through the skin, where cells absorb the energy and use it to repair damaged tissue. There is no heat or thermal effect from the laser.
Who can benefit from Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold laser therapy is both non-surgical and drug-free, making it a feasible solution for everyone. It successfully treats many conditions, like chronic pain, inflammation, strains, sprains, and repetitive use injuries. You won’t experience any side effects and you’ll see a decreased duration of your pain. Most patients experience results after only a a few treatments.
The laser light is proven to reduce inflammation and stiffness, rapidly repair cells for accelerated healing, increase blood flow to the affected area, and stimulate nerve function to decrease pain. Anyone benefiting from chiropractic care can supplement treatment with cold laser therapy.
