Here at Atkinson Family Chiropractic, we specialize in cold laser therapy. Cold laser therapy is a treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and help accelerate your healing process. Cold laser treatment can be used on people suffering from both acute and chronic conditions in order to eliminate pain and swelling, increase functionality, and reduce spasms.
Our educated chiropractor will place the cold laser directly on the injured area for a few minutes. At this time, the non-thermal photons of light will be emitted from the laser and pass through the skin layers. The light has the ability to penetrate two to five centimeters below the skin at 90 mw and 830 nm.
When the light energy passes through your skin and reaches the injured area, the energy is absorbed and interacts with the light-sensitive elements in your cells. When cells absorb this light energy, it will assist with normalizing damaged or injured tissue, reducing pain, inflammation, edema, and overall healing time.
Our entire staff wants to assist you in getting to the root of your problem as quickly as possible. We understand the many benefits of cold laser therapy and will always go above and beyond for you. If you have any questions about your therapy procedure, we are always willing to answer them. We want you to feel completely comfortable throughout the entire process.
