One of the more advanced treatments we have at Back and Body is our class IV cold lasers. These are great tools for helping with niggling injuries, arthritis and other types of joint pain. How cold laser therapy Manhattan can help is the use of laser light therapy. This type of therapy uses low intensity lasers and low light levels, which stimulates healing. The lasers do not heat your body’s tissue.
This is how it works: different wavelengths and outputs of low level lights or applied to the affected area. The tissue absorbs the light. The red light causes the reaction, and the damaged cells respond with a physiological reaction that promotes regeneration.
The machines we use are the same ones that teams from the NFL and NBA have used in treating their players. Laser therapy has been around for several decades and has many research papers and and studies done on it. It is FDA approved and has helped many patients across the globe get out of pain including professional athletes to those with injuries.
The beauty of cold laser therapy, and our office is no different with using this equipment, is that it is non invasive and there are very few to no contraindications to deal with. It is very safe and patients generally feel nothing when the treatment is applied.
It’s great for soft tissue injuries, slow healing areas of the body such as tendons and also for joint pain. Further research is ongoing to see what other applications the treatment can be used for. Many different types of medical professionals use cold laser therapy, such as doctors, dentists, physical therapists and others. It can be used for minor injuries and sprains, swelling, and heals the joints and soft tissue. Many vets swear by it in helping animals recover from their injuries quicker.
Our class IV lasers have helped many patients decrease their healing time and get back to doing what they want to do. In conjunction with other treatments such as chiropractic or physical therapy, even greater improvements can be made.
The treatment is completely non-invasive, and safe. Patients generally feel no pain while the treatment is applied. Cold laser therapy can be used with other treatments that we offer such as chiropractic care, physical therapy, massage, and at home exercise.
