With our day to day busy activities it is very common and easy to injure ourselves. Many of us leave these injuries untreated in hope that it will heal on its own with time. However we are actually making it worse by not giving attention to the pain the damaged tissue is causing. Scar tissue develops in the process of healing the damaged tissue and as it matures the fibrous nodules can become contracted and hard. This causes further damage by obstructing surrounding tissues and vessels. In the long term, this can lead to deterioration of the connection between injured nerves and the brain. So, do not ignore your injuries! Cold laser and chiropractic treatment can help you! Cold laser therapy has been used for over 40 years. The cold laser is placed over damaged cells, releasing a light energy. This energy is than absorbed by a part of the body’s cell called the mitochondria, which is known to be the powerhouse of an individual cell, primarily improving tissue repair. Cold laser improves tissue repair by:
  • Boosting oxygen levels: damaged cells require an increased amount of oxygen to become healthy again. It has been shown that by applying the cold laser over blood vessels, it will release more oxygen to the damaged tissues.
  • Activates natural pain relievers: stimulate parts of the brain that releases natural pain relievers. They may also tone down the stress response and activate relaxation, which in turn increases blood flow.
  • Relieves inflammation: activates your body’s drainage, known as the lymphatic system, which moves inflammation out and back into circulation. This reduces swelling and pain. Swelling from ankle sprain reduced by 44% in comparison to ice therapy.
  • Speeds the healing response: reduces the formation of scar tissue, therefore promoting stronger repair tissue, a more rapid recovery and prevention of re-injury.
Cold laser therapy has been used since 1967, with no documented serious adverse effects. If you have had an injury present over 3 months, you may see an increase in symptoms such as tiredness, stiffness, mild headache or nausea. These symptoms have been noticed to last for a few days.
