WHAT IS LOW LEVEL LASER LIGHT THERAPY?
Connect with us today to learn more about our cold laser therapy services
Most commonly called cold laser therapy, our Laser therapy is an FDA-approved technique that uses targeted beams of light to stimulate injured muscle, joint, tendon, and nerve tissues. These beams of light, or photons, can penetrate 2 inches into the body, where they stimulate and energize cells in injured tissues so that they can repair themselves. Not only is this process faster than the body's normal healing rate, it also results in stronger tissues because the laser stimulates collagen production. Plus, as the laser reduces inflammation, it also reduces pain. Provided that you do not re-injure the area, the pain should be gone for good after a few sessions.
Our laser therapy helps improve a variety of conditions:
- Inflammatory Conditions: Bursitis, Tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis
- Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
- Headaches / Migraines
- TMJ / Jaw Pain
- Scars / Surgical Incisions
- Joint, Muscle, Tendon and Ligament Injuries
- And much much more!
HOW DOES LASER LIGHT THERAPY WORK?
Low-level lasers supply energy to the body in the form of non-thermal photons of light. Light is transmitted through the skin's multiple layers. When low level laser light waves penetrate deeply into the skin, they optimize the immune responses of our blood. This has both anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive effects. It is a scientific fact that light transmitted to the blood in this way has positive effective through-out the whole body, supplying vital oxygen and energy to every cell.
Chiropractic adjustment rarely causes discomfort. However, patients may sometimes experience mild soreness or aching following treatment (as with some forms of exercise) that usually resolves within 12 to 48 hours.
In many cases, such as lower back pain, chiropractic care may be the primary method of treatment. When other medical conditions exist, chiropractic care may complement or support medical treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition.
Doctors of chiropractic may assess patients through clinical examination, laboratory testing, diagnostic imaging and other diagnostic interventions to determine when chiropractic treatment is appropriate or when it is not appropriate. At Ocean Integrated Wellness Center, if chiropractic care is not the only treatment needed, it may be combined with Acupuncture, Physical Therapy, and or Massage Therapy. All services are offered in our Toms River Chiropractic and pain management office.
