Chiropractor in Downtown Toronto Uses Cold Laser Therapy to Improve Healing
Is chronic neck or back pain preventing you from living an active life? Cold laser therapy, offered by our Downtown Toronto chiropractor Dr. Brian Dower, can help ease your pain. This is a pain management and rehabilitation treatment that uses the power of light to stimulate internal healing. Class III laser therapy is approved for the treatment of neck and back pain, arthritis, muscle soreness and other chronic forms of pain. Here at our Downtown Toronto chiropractic care center, we have had great success combining cold laser therapy with spinal adjustments to safely speed the recovery process following an injury.
Healing of Soft Tissue Injuries Promoted by Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy works by sending a targeted concentration of light several centimeters below the skin's surface. This light delivers energy to the cell, increasing the production of the chemical ATP. Scientific research shows that ATP plays a critical role in helping cells repair damage. When soft tissues are injured, the lack of oxygen and other nutrients can slow the healing process. By stimulating the production of ATP, cold laser therapy also stimulates internal healing. This helps reduce inflammation, a primary causes of pain. The treatment also helps the body's soft tissues naturally repair injury damage.
In order to enjoy the full benefits of cold laser therapy, Dr. Dower recommends several sessions over a three to four week period. Each session lasts for 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the patient's individual wellness needs. We frequently combine cold laser therapy with chiropractic adjustments. A car accident injury or sports injury may cause a misalignment to the musculoskeletal system as well as soft tissue injuries. By combining treatments, we can help the body heal faster while correcting any underlying spinal injuries.
Downtown Toronto chiropractic patients choose our wellness center because of our "whole body" approach to care. We believe in not only relieving pain symptoms, but also in helping the body to heal itself completely. These treatments naturally complement this mission. We believe the human body is incredibly resilient, and with the right treatment, we can help unlock the body's ability to heal. From pain management to injury rehabilitation, cold laser therapy is an important part of any wellness program.
Cold Laser therapy is a safe and effective treatment. When the body is injured, it is natural to wish to immobilize injured parts in order to avoid pain or future injury. Unfortunately, immobilization can also restrict or diminish the flow of oxygenated blood. Without oxygen-rich blood, soft tissue cells are unable to properly heal. Laser therapy effectively corrects this problem by giving cells the energy they need to heal in the form of light. Cold laser therapy helps to "kick-start" the healing process.
Numerous scientific studies have documented the benefits of laser therapy, and our patients are living proof!
