Laser therapy is a natural adjunct to chiropractic care. Science has shown that our cells use a combination of light and low electric potentials to communicate. The real growth in medicine has been in the introduction of light therapies or frequencies to heal, relieve pain and cure disease. Laser therapy, as used in our chiropractic office, is where the greatest potential in healing exists. Studies have shown frequencies of 635 hertz have even healed mice from cancer tumors (1). This frequency has been found to correct both transcription and translation of DNA. My own experience with lasers was about 17 years ago. I had a cough that would not go away for over 5 weeks. After having one laser treatment and it went away and just never came back.
Lasers can be used to help to improve the results patients in Plantation often see their Chiropractor for. This includes:
How does it work?
Lasers can penetrate the skin up to 2 inches. Studies show that the healing light photons from lasers send energy to cells that increase blood flow, mitochondrial function, immune function and cell regeneration, while decreasing inflammation (a major cause of disease) and speeding up the healing process. Lasers also can be used to strengthen weak muscles and ligaments. Weak muscles cause postural imbalances that create more weak muscles and cause pain and inflammation to increase.
How many treatments does it take?
Usually it takes 6 treatments. Many people take only 1 or 2. People who have been in car accidents tend to have torn ligaments and herniated discs that can take much longer.
What are the side effects?
Low level lasers have been found to be very safe. The only precaution is the use of special filtering glasses to protect the eyes.
How long does a treatment take?
Treatments take from a few seconds up to 20 minutes.
