Cold laser therapy stimulates healing via low levels of light. Unlike surgical or aesthetic lasers, it doesn't heat up your tissues. The level of light is small in comparison to other forms of laser therapy, such as those that destroy tumors and coagulate tissue.
The providers at Worley Chiropractic Clinic apply low-level light directly to your problem area, where your tissue then absorbs the light. This leads to a biological reaction to the infrared light that helps your damaged cells promote regeneration.
Cold lasers are handheld devices about the size of a flashlight. Dr. Worley places the laser directly over your injured area for 30 seconds to several minutes. This time depends on the size of the area he’s treating, as well as the dose provided by the cold laser unit. He will determine that number of sessions you need, based on your condition.
During the procedure, you’ll feel the device against your skin, but it creates no heat, sound, or vibration. The treatment is completely noninvasive and painless.
Cold laser therapy alleviates your symptoms without the hassle and side effects that come along with medication or surgery. The providers at Worley Chiropractic Clinic might recommend this procedure in combination with other chiropractic techniques to assist with your treatment plan.
