Cold Laser Therapy

What Is Low Level Laser Light Therapy?

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.

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 Health and Wellness 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.

Is Laser Therapy Safe?

Laser therapy has been successfully used around the world for over 25 years, with no reported long-term or irreversible side effects. Our Laser has been cleared by the FDA for the treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and other joint and muscle problems. It has successfully treated chronic and acute pain, wounds and a variety of different conditions.

Low-Level Laser Therapy restores health by removing the underlying causes of ill-health by decreasing inflammation, increasing oxygen and blood flow, promoting muscle calcium uptake, and increasing neurotransmitter release.
Low-Level laser light increases cell energy by stimulating the cell energy center, the mitochondria, to generate energy the nerves use to strengthen the muscles.
You won’t feel the low-level laser light because it doesn’t create heat or vibrate the tissue because of its low power. After low-level laser treatments people often experience less pain, more strength, and better joint movement.
Additional benefits of low level laser therapy include increased protein production, healthy cell growth, wound healing, circulation, tissue regeneration, and immunity.
A laser pointer, though an actual laser with perhaps the correct wavelength, doesn’t have enough energy to create a therapeutic effect.
Clinical studies show that positive laser results can be immediate and last many weeks or more but like many therapies laser may require several treatments to effectively resolve the underlining causes of pain and loss of function.
Fastest healing occurs when both the point of pain and nerves associated with the point of pain are treated simultaneously.
Laser light passes through the skin and stimulates the cells energy production center, called the mitochondria, creating more energy, better call communication, improved tissue growth, enhanced cell nutrition, and extended cell life.
Low-level lasers emit 45 billion light particles, called photons, every second, and, even though clothing restricts laser light from reaching the skin to some degree enough photons pass through the clothing to create a therapeutic effect.
Low-level laser light stimulates cell receptors to increase cell energy production and anytime one cell is stimulated to create energy many other cells will also be stimulated to produce more energy.
In 1998 the Erchonia Corporation designed the first line-generated “laser light” source that enabled doctors to treat over a larger surface area. Although this innovative approach to care is highly effective the science of how it works is relatively new and presently not taught within a majority of health care institutions.
Laser light doesn’t need to penetrate to the injury site to restore health as once the laser light stimulates the original receptors the receptors stimulate non-lasered cells triggering healing responses at the injury site.
Immediately after a new injury to speed healing by preventing muscle weakness, restoring joint and stopping further injury. Low-level laser should also be used with chronic injuries to reduce pain, improve muscle strength, and increase joint movement.
Although the literature supports that one treatment of low-level laser therapy can generate a significant improvement in pain, strength, and joint movement long-term pain relief often multiple treatments.
