Cold Laser Therapy in Paris, Illinois: Hancock Chiropractic Center
Serving Surrounding Areas & Terre Haute, IN
Cold laser therapy is a non-invasive, painless, low level laser that stimulates the damaged tissues, enhancing the progress of healing and providing relief from pain and inflammation.
Cold laser treatment can help chronic pain and inflammation due to its capability to penetrate the skin and treat soft tissue injuries. It is a proven technique that is very popular in Europe and has been gaining popularity in the states for those seeking effective pain treatments without medication or surgery.
Some of the common issues that cold laser therapy can treat:
- Sports injuries
- Ligament injury
- Muscle strain
- Regeneration of the nerves
- Joint injuries and pains
- Wound healing
Non-invasive and medication-free treatment
When you come in for your sessions, low-level light is applied directly to the problem areas. The tissue then absorbs the light. The body then has a natural reaction to red and near infrared light. This reaction can affect damaged cells that helps promote their regeneration. The laser is not cold, but it is called cold laser therapy because the low levels of light are not enough to heat your body’s tissue.
During the procedure, you’ll feel the device against your skin, but it creates no heat, sound, or vibration. It is completely noninvasive and painless. Most of the time, one treatment will take only a few minutes. You may see results after your first session, but it depends on your condition. Dr. Hancock will work with you to formulate the best treatment route to manage your pain.
