Laser therapy has become increasingly popular in treating a host of different conditions — from neck, back, and muscle pain, to tendinitis, tennis elbow and carpal tunnel. If you suffer from conditions that limit your movement and quality of life, visit the professionals at the office of North Park Chiropractic Center. We utilize a procedure known as cold laser therapy, otherwise known as low-level-laser therapy (LLLT), designed to ease your symptoms and restore proper function.
Cold laser therapy harnesses and magnifies energy from the invisible spectrum of light, allowing energy from the light photons to reach tissues up to two inches below the skin's surface. Laser therapy is designed to produce a healing effect in the cells and structures of the body. Unlike other therapies that can mask or cover up the condition, laser light is actually influencing your body to speed up and strengthen the healing process.
The effect of laser therapy is not just temporary relief, it is cumulative over time, so the more treatments you have, the stronger and more permanent the effect. Most people feel nothing at all during the treatment session. Some patients will feel slight tingling sensation brought on by the increased blood flow to the area being treated. Since the laser produces no heat, no burning sensation or warmth from the device can be felt.
At the office of North Park Chiropractic Center, rest assured that you will receive the highest level of skilled and compassionate care as we work to relieve pain, improve motion, and restore body function. For more information on the many services we provide, give us a call today.
