Cold Laser Therapy

Doctor using laser treatment Our Chiropractic office near Bronx is available for cold laser therapy.

If you suffer from chronic musculoskeletal pain, arthritic joints, nagging injuries, neuropathy, and other painful problems, you need a treatment approach that helps you feel and function better as safely and non-invasively as possible. Chiropractic adjustment can offer remarkable benefits, but Dr. Janan Sayyed knows how to enhance those benefits even further through complementary techniques. Cold laser therapy could make all the difference in helping you reclaim your quality of life.

What Is Cold Laser Therapy?

Cold laser therapy, also called low-level laser therapy (LLLT) or photobiomodulation, uses amplified light delivered in a narrow beam to treat a variety of musculoskeletal ailments. Unlike surgical lasers, cold lasers penetrate the skin without burning or cutting.

The laser reaches into underlying tissues in need of treatment. There, it triggers increased cellular production of an energy source called ATP. Cells can then use this extra energy to rebuild and regenerate themselves.

Cold laser therapy also increases circulation in the tissues receiving treatment. This boost brings more oxygen and other healing ingredients to the cells while also helping tissues expel unwanted fluids or inflammatory byproducts. As a result, you experience a reduction in pain, swelling, and inflammation.

How Cold Laser Works With Chiropractic Care

 Dr. Sayyed team uses cold laser therapy as a sensible adjunct to chiropractic care. Many of the same conditions that we treat through chiropractic adjustment also respond well to cold laser therapy. Examples include:

  • Tendinitis or bursitis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Neck or low-back pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Nerve damage and chronic neurological symptoms
  • Fractures or other acute injuries
  • Knee, foot, or other joint pain (including arthritis symptoms)

Research showed that sufferers from facet joint (spinal) pain who received both chiropractic care and cold laser therapy enjoyed a greater degree of improvement than patients who only received one or the other (or no treatment at all).

What to Expect During and After Cold Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy doesn't cause any discomfort; the treatment itself usually feels warm and soothing. Each treatment you receive may relieve more of your symptoms, which is why we typically recommend a series of treatments. Many patients experience significant relief right away.
