Lasers, while not uncommon in dermatology, cosmetic procedures, Lasik, varicose vein and even in oncology, are yielding very promising results in the field of chiropractic and sports medicine. Laser Therapy is a universal method of treating muscle, tendon, ligament, connective tissue, bone, neurological dysfunction or damage, and skin tissue with one simple piece of equipment.
How does therapeutic laser therapy help chiropractors better manage or alleviate their patient's pain? Clinical testing has shown that therapeutic laser therapy is a safe and effective treatment for various types of pain. Most Laser treatments only take a few minutes to perform. Both the patient and chiropractor wear special eyeglasses during the treatment. The laser resembles a small microphone with a cable that is attached to its hand-sized power supply. The light is applied directly on the skin of the affected area by the chiropractor. Unlike acupuncture or the muscle-stimulating Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) devices, the patient usually feels very little, if any, sensation when the laser treatment is applied.
