Cold Laser at ChiroHealth of Chiropractor Fargo
When patients hear of the ChiroHealth & Rehab of Chiropractor Fargo doctors discuss cold laser treatment, they often times think of laser surgery or of something out of a scene of a Star Trek movie. Whether the lasers we think of are for surgery or the ones used in the movies for shooting at people, we think of lasers as being damaging and able to cut through almost anything. Cold laser, however is unlike any of those other kinds of lasers. You see, cold laser actually causes tissue HEALING and not tissue damage!
One of the biggest challenges to overcome when treating patients who are hurting is trying to reduce inflammation and pain so that the patient can move and begin to heal and can start to be active again. Cold laser is a treatment used by the ChiroHealth & Rehab of Chiropractor Fargo specialists that is very effective at reducing a patient’s pain quickly and getting them on the road to recovery much more rapidly.
Cold laser, just like the name implies, is laser treatment that is, well, cold, and unlike surgical lasers that produce heat and cut through tissue cold laser does not produce heat. Instead, rather than cutting tissue cold laser actually stimulates healing in just about all parts of the body. Simply put, surgical lasers are used for cutting tissue cold lasers are used for healing tissue.
The ChiroHealth & Rehab of Chiropractor Fargo doctors use a number of treatment therapies to help reduce pain and inflammation quickly in order to get you moving again and recovering rapidly. One of the most effective ways of accomplishing this is the use of cold laser treatment. Our clinic has been using cold laser therapy for nearly 20 years and believe it or not the treatment has been around for decades! Infact, there were studies being done on this form of treatment in the mid-1960’s!
Cold laser uses compressed light energy called photons. These photons interact with cells in the tissues of the body and actually stimulate the cells to regenerate and heal the tissue. It also helps to reduce inflammation and pain as well to help the body move more normally with less pain. Laser treatment stimulates all sorts of tissues to heal including muscle, tendon, ligament, and even skin to heal more quickly. Cold laser even has an impact on nerve tissue and helps nerve tissue to heal. Many of the conditions the ChiroHealth & Rehab of Chiropractor Fargo doctors treat are chronic pain conditions like arthritis. You would think that chronic conditions like arthritis do not have many treatment options but, chronic arthritis pain responds excellent to cold laser and most patients get significant relief.
The best thing about this ground-breaking technique is that it’s simple, it is effective and most of all it is extremely safe. The way that this laser therapy works is through small laser lights positioned at specific areas of the body. The treatment used by the ChiroHealth & Rehab of Chiropractor Fargo doctors on the areas of the body will last approximately anywhere from 10 to 15 minutes. The lights emit specific wavelengths of light that are passed through the clothing and layers of the skin to penetrate to the cells of the tissues. The light emitted reacts with the cells increasing ATP, which is the fuel cells use to repair tissue. This is kind of similar to the process of photosynthesis found in plants, and this increase in energy helps to stimulate the body’s regeneration process increasing the speed of healing.
