Cold Laser Therapy San Jose Chiropractor
Mission Chiropractic offers cold laser therapy from our fully equipped San Jose clinic as an effective treatment for chronic pain and symptoms related to acute joint pain, tendon and muscle strains and soft tissue injuries. Cold laser therapy is great for other progressive conditions, such as tendonitis, arthritis, bursitis, and carpal tunnel syndrome.
What is Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold laser therapy used in Mission Chiropractic’s chiropractic clinic works by administering low levels of light to the injured or affected tissue. The use of a laser beam creates a healing interaction between cells and light photons that facilitate the healing of tissue at the cellular level. The laser is placed over an injured area where photons are transmitted to skin layers. Beneficial effects of cold laser therapy, administered by a licensed San Jose chiropractor, can be immediate and include wound healing, tissue repair, swelling reduction, increased blood flow and pain reduction. Although a mild tingling and warm sensation is reported by some patients during cold laser therapy, treatment is not painful, and hundreds of studies have revealed cold laser therapy to be safe and effective.
Chiropractic Cold Laser Therapy Treatment Plans
The number of cold laser therapy treatments may vary from patient to patient and can range anywhere from 3 to 25. Sessions with our licensed chiropractor may last up to 10 minutes or less. Less severe and progressed conditions may require shorter sessions and fewer treatments. Certain degenerative conditions often necessitate periodic maintenance treatments to manage pain and promote continued healing. Mission Chiropractic chiropractors design specific treatment plans according to your needs and conditions.
Your first appointment with our San Jose chiropractor begins with basic diagnostic tests and a complete medical history review. Mission Chiropractic bases chiropractic care on treating the ‘whole person’ to promote overall wellness while focusing on your specific pain problem as well as its underlying causes. Used for pain management as well as healing damaged tissue, cold laser therapy has been proven to be effective within a customized chiropractic care program.
