Cold Laser Therapy in Tucson
Cold laser therapy is a fairly new technology that has been making waves in the holistic health care world. At Arizona Chiropractic & Spine Rehabilitation, your Tucson home for chiropractic care, our chiropractor is experienced in providing cold laser therapy to our patients for increased healing speed and pain relief.
What Is Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold laser therapy might not be something you’re familiar with. This relatively new technology is thought to work by speeding up the body's natural healing process, causing damaged cells to regenerate faster than they would without cold laser therapy. The lasers used in this therapy are different from the lasers during surgery. Cold lasers do not destroy the body's tissues.
Cold laser therapy is used to treat a variety of ailments, including joint pain, tendon pain, muscle sprains and strains, muscle spasms, and bursitis. This therapy can be used to treat other conditions as well. If you think that your pain might respond well to cold laser therapy, bring it up at your next chiropractic care appointment, and we'll talk about adding it to your treatment plan.
What to Expect
When you make your first appointment for cold laser therapy, you'll meet with one of our health care professionals to talk about what you hope to get out of the therapy. Together, you'll decide if cold laser therapy is a good fit for your needs. If you decide to proceed, you'll schedule your first cold laser therapy appointment.
At this appointment, the cold laser will apply low level laser light to your skin, targeted in the area where your body needs to heal. As your body absorbs the light from the laser, a reaction occurs within your body’s cells, and damaged cells are activated to begin the regeneration process. Cold laser therapy is a quick treatment and is done in just a few minutes.
Is Cold Laser Therapy Uncomfortable?
Cold laser therapy is not painful or uncomfortable in any way. You'll feel the laser device as it glides across your skin, but you won't feel any heat or pain. You'll simply relax while your technician completes the procedure. You won't have any recovery time following your cold laser therapy and will be free to go about the rest of your day.
