Suffering from chronic pain or stiffness? Dr. Robert Ferguson at Chiropractic Rehabilitation & Acupuncture in Indianapolis, IN, offers cold laser therapy to bring you natural and lasting relief.

Cold Laser Therapy in Chiropractic Care

Chiropractors help bring healing and relief to patients for a variety of issues, even for issues that other methods fail to address. This is because they focus on detecting and addressing the root of the issue using non-invasive techniques that stimulate the body’s natural healing process. Among the various techniques provided is cold laser therapy. Learn more about this technique and its effectiveness in the guide below from Dr. Ferguson and the team at Chiropractic Rehabilitation & Acupuncture in Indianapolis, IN.

Understanding Cold Laser Treatments

Sometimes, pain is the result of an issue deep in the soft tissues, such as scar tissue or trigger points. When this is the case, it can be difficult to reach and treat them through standard methods.

Cold laser treatment – otherwise known as low-level laser therapy – provides several benefits, including being able to penetrate deep layers of tissue. The device sends laser energy into the target site where it is absorbed by the cells. This releases energy stored in the cells, accelerating a process that helps repair damaged tissue, reduce inflammation, break up scar tissue and trigger points, improve blood circulation, and more.

Why Is Cold Laser Therapy Used In Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractors are typically thought of as the “bone doctors,” as they can effectively restore alignment to the bones and joints of the body. Their focus is broader than this, however. The goal is to assess and treat the musculoskeletal system as a whole to ensure optimal healing.

If you’re experiencing neck pain, it’s possible that misalignment plays a role. However, that misalignment has likely caused tension in the neck muscles. If that tension has gone untreated, trigger points can develop.

Unfortunately, though restoring alignment to the neck is vital, the tension and other soft tissue problems can put strain on the bones and cause the bones to become misaligned again.

This is just one example of how the soft and hard tissues impact one another, but there are many more. Achieving lasting relief requires addressing both the hard and soft tissues. Therefore, cold laser treatments are often combined with other chiropractic techniques for conditions ranging from chronic neck and back pain to arthritis and tendinitis.
