A chiropractic clinic in central Florida announced it has observed significant success using cold laser therapy to help the body heal faster after injuries. The treatment appears promising to treat muscle strains and tears, postural imbalances, chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia, and other issues using drug-free, non-surgical natural healing techniques, according to the chiropractors.
Cold laser therapy uses specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and stimulate cellular energy production, which can help accelerate the healing process. It can be used on patients who suffer from a variety of acute and chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis to help eliminate pain, swelling, post-operative wound healing, nerve damage tendon and ligament damage, reduce spasms, and increase functionality.
“Cold laser therapy is a powerful healing tool; however, its benefits are not well known,” Dr. Bret MacDermott of Orlando Resorts Chiropractic Medispa in Celebration, Florida, said in a news release. “This treatment method has been used by elite athletes for more than a decade to heal faster after injury.”
Now, MacDermott said, patients at Orlando Resorts Chiropractic can benefit from the high-tech, popular treatment option that naturally and safely promotes a quick healing process after injury.
“The body has its own sophisticated way of healing itself; it just needs a bit of outside support,” MacDermott said. “This outside support is exactly what cold laser therapy provides.”
According to MacDermott, the body use ATP (a cellular fuel) after an injury to help healing process. Cold laser therapy stimulates the cells to produce even more ATP. “The more ATP cells can produce, the faster the cells can repair cellular damage,” MacDermott said. “Additionally, this injection of cellular fuel helps tissue eliminate the inflammatory substances that exacerbate pain and lead to scar tissue buildup.”
“Cold laser therapy offers important health benefits for patients with chronic pain conditions, including osteoarthritis,” he said. “The treatment process itself is also very gentle. Patients often remark on the relaxing, pleasant warm sensation that accompanies treatment.”
The benefits manifest themselves soon after the treatment. “Depending on the severity of a patient’s condition, a typical treatment session may be complete in just a few minutes,” MacDermott said. “For optimal results, I recommend several treatments over an extended period.”
