As chiropractors, we treat patients for all types of arthritis. One of the most common types of arthritis is osteoarthritis. We have found that using Cold Laser Therapy provides tremendous benefit to patients who have arthritic issues with their neck, back, shoulders, elbows, wrists, and knees. If you have a joint issue, this type of therapy can help reduce or even eliminate joint pain.
Arthritis affects more than 50 million people every year in the US and that number will only increase as our population ages. All forms of arthritis have one common symptom, pain. Pain develops as a result of multiple factors including inflammation, joint deformity, and can lead to a lack of mobility and partial disability. Chiropractic treatment with cold laser has great results for arthritic patients.
Beyond arthritis, cold laser therapy is excellent for treating various forms of chronic and acute pain. Chiropractors also use laser therapy for patients suffering from back and neck pain, musculoskeletal pain, fibromyalgia, tendonitis, neuropathy, Achilles tendon pain, migraine headaches, sinus blockage, sprains and strains, carpal tunnel and other associated pains. Cold laser therapy also treats conditions such as TMJ, reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), and other inflammatory and scarring conditions.
Cold laser therapy is non-thermal and noninvasive and is one of the most effective healing therapies in use today. Completed in ten to twelve sessions, laser therapy is not only significant in reducing treatment times, it is cost effective as well.
