Cold Laser Therapy South Austin TX
At HealthFirst Spine & Wellness, we are committed to stay on top of the latest and most effective treatments in order to offer our patients optimal pain relief. Therefore, we have made FDA-approved Cold Laser Therapy a part of our pain management program. This is a technology and advanced technique that has been scientifically proven to be effective for treating a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions. High intensity laser therapy is easy to apply, highly effective, significantly less expensive than surgery and free of side effects. In fact, when paired with other chiropractic treatments, cold laser therapy can speed up nerve flow and healing in the body.
What is Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold Laser Therapy is an acupuncture alternative, offering benefits that surpass the traditional pain management technique. Just like acupuncture, it stimulates the healing process by targeting certain trigger points of body. However, unlike acupuncture, it is a non-invasive technique which means that it doesn’t use needles to promote pain relief. Instead, a laser beam is used to target the affected tissues and relieve pain. The way the cold laser works is by sending units of light energy directly to damaged cells; this stimulates the cells, transforming them from damaged to healthy.
What is Cold Laser Therapy Good For?
Cold laser therapy is a safe and effective technique that not only relieves pain, but also reduces inflammation and edema and increases the strength of affected tissues. It can improve metabolism, circulation, tissue healing, cellular function and pain. Therefore, it is used to treat a number of musculoskeletal conditions, including:
- Back and neck pain
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Knee pain
- Tennis elbow
While cold laser therapy can be used as standalone treatment for all these conditions, when combined with chiropractic care, this modern pain-alleviating technique yields improved results. Therefore, at HealthFirst Spine & Wellness, our chiropractors use this technique in conjunction with chiropractic adjustments to ensure you have the best support for a quick and complete recovery. The use of this advanced treatment technique also allows us to offer optimum pain relief to the patient and restore their mobility and strength.
