What is cold laser therapy good for?

  • Posted By: Balance Chiropractic

Hi Dr. Troy Norris here with Balance Chiropractic. Hey, I just wanted to reach out with you and talk to you briefly with regards to laser therapy. We have a lot of patients that come into our clinic with neck, mid-back, or lower-back pain, and we utilize chiropractic in order to help them. As well, in certain instances we’ll use what we call cold laser therapy. Laser therapy is something that stimulates cellular activity, and so it helps with tissue regeneration and healing. As well, it increases oxygen uptake of the tissues.

How does laser therapy work?

It’s honestly something that’s great. If you are online looking at laser therapy, you may be interested in it. Outside of the spinal regions, laser is something that we utilize with people who have plantar fasciitis, chronic knee pain, shoulder pain, and other extremity pain.

How long does laser therapy last for back pain?

Laser treatment may last as little as 5 minutes, or as long as 20 minutes. The total number of treatments is generally 4-12 depending upon many factors which will be evaluated by Dr Troy. It is important to remember that an immediate relief of back pain does not mean the condition is fully healed.

Is treatment painful?

Patients compare the sensation during laser treatments to a rubber band snapping against their skin. However, what laser resurfacing feels like depends on the laser, the depth and area of treatment, and an individual's tolerance for pain. It can be tingling or burning, some find it soothing with a Class IV laser- the strongest and safest available in Boise.
